    Some reason, I got curious about Facebook and got sucked into it today.
    Some stupid reason, it decided that my b-day was in March and not in May! I can not find any possible way of how to edit the birthday information.
    Anybody know how? I can edit most anything else in the profile, but some reason it won't let me edit b-day.

    Log in on Welcome to Facebook | Facebook , click on Profile, then Info. After that click on Birthday and then you can change your birth year. I also got sucked into Facebook a few months ago, lol. Then that South Park episode came on, and found it hilarious.

    Funny thing is, it was that stupid episode that got me interested in the first place. Cool thing is though, I found some of my old friends that were classmates of mine back in high school of 93! People I'd thought I would never contact again! :D 
    I'll try your suggestion, thank's!

    Thank you, clicking on your link somehow helped out! Nice to have the proper date on there! LOL!

    I just started today and was amazed to see my old classmates! :D  Really never expected to see any of them again. Would be nice to have a high-school reunion with them.

    That's because we've all grown up since high-school. I think in high-school, most of us were dick's to each other! LOL!
    '93 was the best year, I think I had more friends and a social circle than any other year at that school. Rest of the years sucked.

    While Facebook is one of the easiest ways to keep up with friends and family (I use it), it's also the easiest way to share, unintentionally, your personal information. Even though there are privacy settings, Facebook pretty much doesn't give a shit, so be careful what you post.

    Here's a useful way to see what information is publicly available on your user profile: http://zesty.ca/facebook/

    I've blocked the vast majority of my friends over the years. I don't care about their babies. I don't care what they're eating for dinner. I don't care that they're tired or sad. I just don't care for the idea that we can share with the world our every whim and superficial notion as if anyone actually gives a shit.

    Then why did you create a Facebook? Lol just kidding.

    Usually I don't bother reading everyone's update. I just use it for
    -Contacting my friends about school, plans on a friday night, etc.
    -Rants
    -NERD RAGE
    -Posting comedic-yet-offensive demotivational posters
    -Talking to Sage about Doctor Who and Transformers (Oh wait, I can do that here.)

    Say does that application "Check to see who visits your profile" work? I'm working on a sketch for a girl to impress her and I don't want her to think I'm Facebook stalking her :lol 

    That reminds me, I haven't checked him in a while. That man is a LEGEND!

    I did it cause my girlfriend at the time made me. Also, at that time, Facebook was exclusive to students so it really wasn't that bad. It was when they opened the doors to everyone that it got annoying.

    No it doesn't. It just randomly generates people's profiles into a top ten list.

    I would never go on Facebook unless I was 10+ years older, It's only normal when Teen's and Adult's have facebook pages, I get furious when little kids go onto Twitter and Facebook and things like Chatroulette, hence why I don't go on those sites.
