I'm coming out of the closet: I have a 101% obviously bogus facebook account that I use to check out those links/events that require me to have a facebook account. It has a bogus looking name and info, and it/he went to a completely famously fictional college that now has about 30 other graduates of.. (according to facebook) and now these graduates are linking to me, complete with bogus completely made-up chatter about classes and instructors and such drivel. Most (but not all) is obviously other people like me with bogus accounts that wanted to look more "normal"... Makes me wonder how much of facebook is the same.

In slate.com you can't even post anymore unless you are on some social site. How much of FB's success is due to people who would rather not bother, but are stuck with it?

Not me. That bogus account is not connected to anyone I actually know. On purpose.
