I use FaceBook, but I use the Mobile site, which is I'm 
on a couple of groups, but you have to use the "normal" FaceBook site for that. 
I'd say that FaceBook is accessible, but not as usable as you might desire. 
It's pretty cluttered. My daughter says it's even cluttered for a sighted 
person to use. I just thought of one thing that I would say is not accessible 
at least as far as I can tell. It's difficult for me to tell which radio 
buttons I'm setting when I try to change my privacy settings.

Hi Guys and Girls: I was just looking at Facebook, sort of interesting but read 
about accessibility issues. Anyway, Has anyone created a Social Networking site 
where users can have their own pages so too speak? I saw a couple of so called 
Social Networking sites for the blind, ya, a couple of blogs and Forums, not 
exactly fun nor interesting to use. Any ideas or if you have one out there let 
me know. I'd like to take a look at how it is built, the code in source view 
would be some good relaxation reading.
