    • I honestly would choose FAB40. My reason is that FAB40 is a social media network. Facebook is mostly networkers trying to convert you to their opportunity. I have connected with many friends and school mates but if I really wanted to be social and make friends, I would choose FAB40 over any of them. We can promote our businesses here but it is not like being spammed by everyone across the nation and world!!estaticheart Plus it is more intimate.heart

    • I would have to say both for different reasons. My entire family (from 12 - 70) is on facebook and we have a family group and I have reconnected with alot of old friends. Fab40 I have found new friends, learned a TON from all the great ladies here.

    • Fab40 for sure...cause without this wonderful site I wouldn’t have been able to meet you awesome ladies...I find Facebook very superficial...too many people adding people just for the sake of it...you could have 1000 friends on your list but how many do you truly know and interact with...here I have gotten to know pretty much everyone on my list...and I am interacting more and more....this allows me to get to know you on a more personal level...you are not just a number for me...rather a real friend...happy
      time to quit babbling...lol

    • Fab40 of course, because I love, love, love this site and the friends I have met in the course of my stay here. There is so much unity here and lots of topics to talk about as well as the groups and so much more and beside Facebook can’t hold a candle to Fab sorry :(

    • I would opt for both because Fab40 has lead me to new friends and FB has connected me with old friends.  I love them both.  Fab40 is more personal to me wherease FB has been a place for me to stay connected or in the loop of what is going on with my friends from back in the day!!!

    • I have to agree with all of you who said both.  Fab 40 is my favorite spot and I am usually on here more than anything else.  I have made some wonderful friends here and as Coralee said, I have learned so much from so many of you here.  BUT Facebook has allowed me to reconnect with so many friends and family and keep in touch with others as well.

    • I would have to say Facebook because of family and I’m able to stay in touch with all my friends that I do things with.  Plus we have male friends who live in Austin and it’s nice to keep in touch with them which you can’t do on Fab40.  I’ve never had a problem on FB with spammers or people trying to sell me anything.

    • It is a chioce that I am glad that I do not have to make. I love them both for very different reasons. They are very different sites, My Family and friends who live in far away places, some in other countires are on Facebook and I am able to interact with them more and in a musch less expensive way. It is great. I love Fab40+ because it feeds the creative explorer side of me, it offers support companisonship and reminds that I am not alone in facing life ups and downs

    • I have to say both too. I have met many new friends and connected with old friends and have family connections on Facebook. On Fab 40 I have learned so much from articles and made many new friends along the way. I also like the way we support each other here in good times and bad and help each other out with advice.happy

    • I really do not think they are the same.  I love Fab40 because it’s my website where I can interact with women all over the world.  I’ve learned all kinds of things on here, but...my nieces and nephews are not on FAB40...one...they are not in their 40’s...and of course my nephews are not females..LOL.    

      Both are very useful to me but in different ways.  I use them both but not for the same reasons.  So I would not be able to choose.

    • I would choose FAB40.  For me Facebook is about the past, and FAB40 is about the here and now and also the future.  

      I like Fab40 because there are no ex boyfriends lurking around on here estatic

      I manage to stay in touch with my friends and family without Facebook.....shock horror!

    • Fab40 all the way..as Karyn pointed out, FB for me was very superficial and neither my mom or sister are interested in FB, and quite honestly I have no desire to connect with men or people from my past, so I’m in the right place.estatic

    • I don’t do FaceBook because of my Writers Cafe membership and my writing would be all over the world if I joined FaceBook (a little glitch they don’t seem to know how to get around so I leave them alone). I do have an account with LifeTime, FabOver50 (which is brand spanking new), and myYearbook, but out of the bunch, I will have to say Fab40.

    • I don’t like the advertisement style of Facebook, but I do like that I can instant message and chat with my family and friends there, something I don’t think I can do on Fab40.  It would be great if we had a way to send instant messages to others, or at least had a group for real time chatting with the other women here.

      Facebook is a little too invasive of privacy, but there are some of that easily on here too.  But I like the intimacy and community of Fab40 so far.
