I read LJ every day and my "friends" list postings have definitely diminished with the entrance of the FaceBook craze.  I enjoy the quick, down and dirty mini post that FB offers, but I've recently found that I don't get the same satisfaction as I do with LJ.  Now, my posts have never been overly philosphical, but they do offer me an opportunity to vent a bit, get something off of my chest, or just record a thought in a forum that is much, much different than FB. 

I guess I like the sense of community on LJ, the smaller group of friends, the opportunity for some coffee house chit chat on a deeper level if you know what I mean.

Anyway, I think I'm going to begin posting a bit more than I have been in the recent past...here on LJ.

I totally agree with you about the sense of community and intimacy on LJ. With FB I felt all I got from people were sound bytes without much substance. I suppose if that's what one likes, it's okay, but it's not for me.

I look forward to reading more posts from you. :D

I've been thinking the same thing. I keep wanting to post here, things that I cannot or would not feel comfortable posting on facebook. I just need to get back in the habit.

I agree Karen. I'm not crazy about FB.

I can't understand the appeal of FB.

I totally agree. I like FB for reading what my long-lost friends from high school and college are up to, because I really did have a great (both in quality and number) of friends in both places.

But I miss my LJ friends. I'm trying to keep up with posting here, if for no other reason than as, I guess, it was originally intended... a journal. I want the record of what's going on in my life in a place where I can go back to it and print it out if I want. That's just not there with FB. Even if I faithfully posted a new "status" every time something in my life changed (which I don't), you don't have that same record there like you do here.

Long way of saying... I'm always glad when my other LJ friends see this... and I'm looking forward to hearing more from you =)

FaceBook has certain advantages, but I feel smarter (and feel that my Friends are smarter ... even if they are the same people ... LOL) when I meet them here on LJ!
