I really have been devoting way too much time to checking every single profile of a friend request that comes in through Facebook. It bothers me that people can’t sometimes even upload a profile picture but I’m supposed to be “friends” when I share everything. There are also tons that have only a few friends in common or none and then I look at the profiles and don’t see any key words like: costuming, comics, entertainment, sewing, writing, or Castle. It’s too much time to go through these every single day so I set up a Facebook Page, http://www.facebook.com/amberunmasked.
Someone said it’s not as good because you don’t get notifications (I guess in the status updates area) but there’s no approval process. You just go to the page for Amber Unmasked and click “Like.”
The new Fan Page should suit the needs of the pop culture community just fine. It’s for teaser pics and announcements.
