    I'd Rather Keep These Social Networks Apart.

    I use both facebook and experience project a lot, but nonetheless I use them for two very different things. I mainly use facebook for keeping contact with friends and perhaps even making new friends. Because I am indeed on facebook for my relationships, I try to give a halfway...

    I'M Glad They Changed It

    I didn't like when our profiles were so connected to fb. I mean, I may want to share some things on there, but not nearly as much. There are a lot of stories or what not I post on here I wouldn't want to share on fb. It's good to have this aside from that!

    It's much easier to vent on EP, with people who share similar experiences. If my Facebook friends knew my secrets and some of the stuff I've been through, they'd treat me like a different person. On here we have the security of anonymity. I like that. :)
