Is Facebook a FAD?

High Desert Technology believes it is a "FAD" and it is a matter of time before a service offering much better privacy catches on...there are several out there already but yet to catch on. The saddest thing is that many people know the internet as FACEBOOK....this is dangerous! As always we strongly encourage users to create their own website/blog and remain in control.


Start with purchasing your own domain name (14 dollars a year gives you a domain name and email), you can start by utilizing your own email address (, again remaining in control is key!


A new Associated Press-CNBC poll shows half of Americans think Facebook is a passing fad. And, in the run-up to the social network's initial public offering of stock, half of Americans also say the social network's expected asking price is too high.

More than 40 percent of American adults log in to the site —to share news, personal observations, photos and more— at least once a week.

The company Mark Zuckerberg created as a Harvard student eight years ago is preparing for what looks to be the biggest Internet IPO ever.

Just a third of those surveyed think the company's expected value is appropriate, 50 percent say it is too high.

Half the people surveyed say they think Facebook is a good bet, while 31 percent do not.
