    Facebook is GREAT. How exactly it's "awful" makes no sense to me. It's a social networking program that excels at just that... social networking. I know what all my friends are up to by the minute and an overview of what's going on with everyone simultaneously. Maybe if you were at university you'd think otherwise.

    Now people spending too much time on it is something altogether. But for those of us who don't, it's a great tool.

    And no of course it's not him. If you read the info tab you'd know that. The information is written about Roger... not by him.

    Definitely not him. There's about 3 photos in that page and all of them are public photos. Anybody who plays facebook should know what facebook is about. It's about sharing photos with your friends, and keep in touch with them.

    I think it's Mirka or someone he hired to pretend to be him. I don't think he has that much time to respond to people on facebook.

    I'm a student, I've had a profile for 4 years now and I think Facebook is overrated and a piece of junk.

    It's obviously a fan. They have lots of Rafa Nadal too on face book! Apparently people find it fun to pose as their idol there.

    they do that for a lot of celebrities in general. You never know if they are real ones or not.

    Yay, Facebook sounds like the new Myspace (except now Myspace verifies 'celebrity' pages and puts them on a list).

    I know I hate it too. The first time I though it was really him, I was really naive! Then I realize people just do that for fun.

    Yes,people do take it seriously..even on RF.com! That was really beyond me,because Roger always lets his fans know whats up with him on his official site.

    Ahem. So this is really Roger on facebook.. or someone with approval of Federer to write on his behalf...

    Wow that is a fan page, meaning that it was either created by a fan or his publicist, or his publicist's assistant. Use your common sense.

    his publicist most likely, they have them for many top players, instead of being their friend you become a fan...so far im a fan of Fed,Nadal,Gulbis,Nole,Nishikori,Gasquet, and Roddick

    That's because you don't have a "leg to stand on" in any of your comments.

    This is his Facebook page. I am not sure he personally updates it. It's probably his personal assistant.

    Looks like it's really Fed. I joined the fans and now I get updates.

    I am Thomaz Bellucci on FB. So if you join the fan page, you will get updates from me haha.

    He must update his fb page himself hence why the updates are in 1st person.

    I have my doubts about that one. He mentions his Facebook page on the front of his official website, but there is no mention of his twitter page.



    Edit: Nevermind, it's gone now. Guess it was fake.
