Sounds like a great discussion to start Pat. I'll keep my eyes open for when you begin in and join in.

As far as adding friends, sometimes I initiate the request, sometimes I receive them. When we started the group, as people joined that weren't already on my friends list, I would add, or receive a request from them. That is one reason why I started the Whose Who topic on the group page. I recognize quite a few names and/or pictures, but not all.

I have received friend requests, that I haven't had a clue who they are. If they have a bird in their profile picture that tells me that it is another bird lover, and I also check to see who our mutual friends are - that usually helps. When in doubt I will usually accept the invitation, then visit their page - look at their photos, the groups they belong to, the causes they support, etc. You can always remove someone from your friends list by going to their page and scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking "remove from friends" on the left. You can also block the user as well if need be. I've only gotten 1 friend request that made me say outloud "You've GOT to be kidding me!" - I recognized the person, just had no desire to be on their friends list. I figured it was just to be nosey - LOL! If that happens, just click "ignore request".

Another little nifty thing is that you can suggest friends to other friends. Pat, I just sent you a friend request and some suggestions as well.

You're most welcome. You should also review your privacy settings so those are set where you would like them to be.

I keep all of mine (profile, photos, etc) on "just friends". You can also hide your email from everyone. You can also change the settings on the Facebook search so that you don't show up in searches if you choose to.

I've stared a "Let's Get Acquainted" Topic on our Facebook page.
Thought it would be great for us to learn a little about those of us who are not officially "friends".

I deleted my Facebook account due to a virus from a picture link that was allegedly sent by a friend. When I opened it it took over my computer and disabled my anti-virus. Be cafeful what links you open!! I lost many years of information.

Thats dreadful Joe. Can you describe the picture though or the title so we can avoid it perhaps? Its such an awful thing when years of collections go down the pan like that frown

I just now saw this sticky so I decided to join the group! Not a massive Facebook user though, it really gets on my nerves sometimes.


I gave up the best thing that ever happened to me.

Just wanted to double check if it is ok posting links to the organizations that I know you all support (and I have adopted them for myself as well), on my own page. I want to do everything I can to help this cause. Already had one issue with an ex member of Mytoos for which I am greatly sorry if this caused any issues for Mytoos.

Jan is right - Facebook is an excellent platform to spread the word and share good information with a large audience. Unfortuately, as with every group there are bad apples that like to spread negativity and just wait to pounce on someone new to Facebook and become argumentative. That's where the "unfriend" button comes in handy - lol! If you need help with your privacy settings just let me know - I'm happy to help.

Ok I am getting the hang of Facebook and would like to go as far as I possibly can networking on there. So I would like for all Mytoos members to please send me a friend invite (if you like me of course lol), I am having a hard time locating all of our wonderful members due to the real names used on Facebook. I believe that the more of us who can connect, the more the opportunities to reach out and share important information on not only our precious Toos, but all Parrots. Dont worry I wont bother with silly chat promise wink. I have already found several folks who had birds and were very interested in finding out the facts and truth. I of course share what I can and always ask them to join here also.

So if you wouldnt mind, please friend me on facebook. Lets help spread the word as far as we can together.

P.S. I am Deborah FeatheredAngels on Facebook laugh

I haven't been around for a while. It's nice to find the facebook page, and I made it a point to join.
