Like everyone else... I'm on facebook.  I use facebook to communicate with family and close friends,  never thought to use it for meeting men.  I've recently have been contacted through facebook by a man I don't know but is friends with one of my friends.  He does not have a profile pic and has limited how much information he wants to share about himself.  I'm fine with that...
