I'm on Fursbook

Many of my friends probably know that I recently created a Facebook Page. I still have my Facebook profile but technically it is illegal for a non-human to have a Facebook profile. I am not sure why Facebook discriminates against anipals but they do. I confess my new page has not had the enthusiasm I had hoped and that's because they work differently and the interactions with friends is just different.

My pal @kittehboi got kicked off Facebook some time ago just because he suggested that Facebook create something special for our pals. Dogbook and Catbook just isn't the same. So, @kittehboi decided to do it himself. Using Ning, he started Fursbook.



Mom had a Ning account for her work but hasn't done much with it. However, she knows it is powerful because she is a member of GovLoop which is a social media network for folks who work for the Government and it is built with Ning. Ning charges a small fee to have an account and then you pay more to get more features. @Kittehboi set up a Chip In account and as of today he raised enough money to get the really cool features for Fursbook.

So I would like to invite my pals to check it out and join. You still have to lie about your age. Those government people are just trying to protect children, but othewise this is an anipal friendly and completely free site. But, it will only be fun if we all sign up!



While I like kitties, don't get me wrong, there are decidedly few doggies on Fursbook right now so please, doggie pals in particular, PLEASE sign up. No offense kitty pals!

Thank you @kittehboi for starting this great social network just for us anipals!

he he well done pal. Unfortunately, I'm not on Fursbook as often as I should be. M says there just aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I want her to do and be everywhere I want her to be. Maybe I could clone her! Now there's a thought.

Fursbook sounds great. I'll check with HH and see if she'll help me sign up. Thanks for the tip...

pawhugs, Max

Interesting.
I don't do the Facebook stuffs beclaws my mom says there are too many problems with it.

Mario - I know what you mean. If I could clone mom, one mom could stay home with me all day and the other one would go off to work!

Frankie - Fursbook is managed closely so we are not expecting the problems on Facebook.

Pandafur - Kitties are welcome too! Just throwing the gauntlet down to my doggie pals!

I didn't know it was illegal for doggies to have Facebook pages. That is not nice. Very cool of your friend to come up with a solution :)

Sam said...
