Everyday I get on facebook I have friend requests from people that we have 29 friends in common, or 117 friends in common, I pull up the list and it is all music connections.
I feel like facebook is like your own personal living room. You say what's on your mind, you bring out the family videos and photo albums, etc... should you use such a personal vehicle with perfect strangers? Sure you have music in common, but where should you draw the line?
The event invitations are great, and people see your activity in the live news stream.
In a traditional work place the line between professional and personal is guarded, stuck to, and very clear. With music, where does the personal/professional line get drawn? Do I really want some drummer, I have never met seeing the pics of me and mom over the holidays? Not that there is anything to hide, but would you walk up to a perfect stranger on the street and tell them your opinions without ever saying hello?
Steve... I know you on here, but i don't know you in real life - what does this site mean? Is it a metaphor, or can you really kill your online life and wash away all the things you ever did or wanted to do on all your sites? One of my high school friends (on my facebook page) saw how many website i was one and he commented (late one night)... "you have too many websites" lol
