I would love to have more of my friends on MFP, but I don't want to ask each one of them if they are signed up and what their profile name is. I wish there was a simple look for facebook friends tool. Maybe a way to connect with any facebook friend that has liked the MFP page on facebook. I don't know but I wish that there was an easier way to do it!

I thought about that but it means finding their emails in hotmail or facebook some how and then imputing each one individually. I just wish there was a simple button to search for all my facebook friends at one time. smile

Ooh - I would not want this.

I like being able to be really open and that is something I don't feel comfortable sharing with work colleagues, some family and old friends from high school. I do have a few 'real life' friends on here, but I would not want a mass add function.

I understand you would still need to accept or decline an invite, but that would lead to all kinds of awkwardness! laugh

That is a good point, but I feel more nervous about chosing "friends" from a list of names of people I have never met. How did you choose your "friends" from MFP?

I guess my real life friends know that I am not (nor have I ever been) skinny. So I don't think that they would be surprised to know that I am trying to loose weight.

I enjoy having some of my facebook friends separate. I also like MFP because I feel like I can say exactly what's on my mind without people being offended and becoming titty babies.

Why not just post on facebook something along the lines of "hey, I'm on MFP, if you are too and want to friend me, let me know!" That way all your FB friends will have the opportunity to out themselves as MFP users, or not.

I'm new here...2 weeks. I'm sure finding friends is just a matter of time. I'm not sure I would want my facebook friends on here with me. Perhaps only a few, people I grew up with or that knew me in school.

Good idea that may be the solution! wink

You can also go to the MFP page on FB and see if any of your friends have liked the page. I've found a few people that way.

When I first started out on MFP I had only RLF adn a couple co workers.. I deleted all of them bigsmile I felt like I always had to behave myself and be careful what I said.... I like the two seperate and I prefer MFP to FB and use it more too.

This.

I'm here, and I post on this website because I can't/won't talk about the things I do on Facebook. I'm kind of using this like Facebook these days!

I am with you. I don't even like putting photos of myself cause I feel like they think I am being too confident. Also my diet is not a secret but I don't post any of it on FB. I love this site more then FB. I've meet great people here so far and I don't plan on stopping.

All you have to do is post a status on facebook asking if any of your friends are on MFP. If you don't know their email or username, they probably don't want to be your friend on here.
