That's not exactly what I'm referring to, though; nor do I believe it is what Magister Nemo is getting at. I think he is referring to how others' opinions relate to self-evaluation. How another person sees me has no effect on my self-esteem. It does

While I was checking my mail on my iPhone last night it occurred to me that the reason Facebook has largely taken over from forums like this is probably because it is much more mobile-friendly. I remember reading how smart phones have taken over from

I had it before that in 2004 but for the same reason merely to meet people in the same college as there were 30,000 students. With it you could find similiar interests or be as unoriginal as finding a kegger . Sounds like a lot but not compared to

When you KNOW who and what you are, you feel no need to prove yourself to anyone. You just know. If you are concerned about what others think about you then you are under their control.. This choice decides your slavery or your freedom. Still fee

Oh yes. I have long been encouraged to become active on Facebook. I have a book and three audio programs devoted to Satanism and have been told that if I want to reach more Satanists that Facebook "is the way to go". And that may be true

Yeah that is a valid point I do enjoy being more open as well. On Facebook I'm completely open in group by choice. However I think I'll stick to here more for a while. As far as the rest I'm not sure, I know what you're talking about I'm not an admin

My major issue with Facebook is that is a terrible substitute for carrying on on a discussion. On these "old fashioned" message boards a topic is ORGANIZED in ONE place. You can follow the SEQUENCE of comments and EASILY see who is saying
