I would love to have more UU friends on my FaceBook. It would brighten my day. If you guys have a Facebook account, look me up.

Richard Mendelson is my full name. My baby is my picture. Look me up!!! Let's be friends....

I don't do FaceBook, either. Why does it matter how many FB "friends" you have?

This whole "social media" stuff just leaves me cold.

This whole "social media" stuff just leaves me cold.

Me too. I just don't get it. I love to call it "spacebook" (myspace + facebook) because my doing so drives all of my family and friends nuts. Time will tell, but I may become the last person in the world who has internet access but no spacebook account.

Ooops, danger of hijacking thread, sorry Richard.

It is not about having a ton of friends for me. I am not able to get on UU much during the day. My phone has a FaceBook button so I am able to see what people are up to. I have not met any Uke people from UU in real life, and I wold love to see yo guys more often. This comes from a place of love....

Richard,
I'll look for you on FB. No problem. You should check out our page for The Ukulele Cowboy Society. I would appreciate it. I wasnt active on it until about a year ago when I realized the potential of social media in terms of our band. It's actually been a huge help connecting with people who end up being a really good resource. I may not post what I had for breakfast this morning but being able to invite people to a gig or concert that we are playing? There is nothing like it...

Yo, Richard - there are quite a few "Richard Mendelson's" on FB - which one are you, exactly?? "Like" Uke Republic's FB page & you'll see a lot of us from UU - also "The Southeast Ukers" is the FB version of the same here on UU.

Thanks Mike! I just liked your page!!!

"Gmoney" isn't "Mike" of "Uke Republic" - I probably confused you! :) I'm just plain old "gfincher" on FB.

I value my privacy way too much to want to put personal info out on the intarwebs.

These days any public info you post could get you denied a job or even fired.

Why anyone would want to post their entire personal life details online is beyond me.

like John, Richard, I don't have a facebook thing, or a my space thing or even a mobile phone. It took me years and years before I even considered joining a forum. To date this is the only one I have ever, and possibly will ever have been on. It's also taken me years to do videos for a youtube thing as I am a terrible luddite and computer illiterate. All that said, I love your posts and your threads mate and you can count me as a friend for sure!

Well, this morning when I got up, I had a friend request from Joey, and Mendel had accepted my request... so while we're at it, if any of you want to shoot a request to me (preferably with a little note so I know it's a UUer), feel free! My UU name is my real name (because when I joined this forum I was expecting there to be another step where you chose a user name.... ), so I should be pretty easy to find on FB. If not, I'm the guy holding the white Fender Jazz Bass in my profile picture.

OK, Mendel, Chris friend request sent off to both of you. I have added a note saying UU'er Eric Blooduke so you know where it's coming from. I think I got the right two, Joey was in both of your friend's lists.

I'll jump in here too, you can never have too many Ukuleles or friends, or friends of Ukuleles..search for Joey Paul, the pic is the same as the one in my icon here, just the full picture!

I thought the same, Mendel is a popular guy! I have just over 100 (I think or 70 something)
