I'm sure you would have to be living on Mars to not know about Facebook but I thought I'd blog about it anyway :)
I joined Facebook a couple of weeks ago after my Mom and one of my girlfriends pestered me about it. I can't believe my own mother was on it before me! But blogging keeps me busy and I just couldn't see joining yet another Internet thang. Well was I wrong!... I'm shocked at the amount of people who are on there. If you don't know what it is I'll try to explain. You look up old/new friends, people you haven't had contact with in years. I can only touch the tip of the iceberg because I don't fully understand it all but it's a lot of fun. Everyone is sort of "networked" and it's almost like "she knows two friends, and so on, and so on, etc." It all seems a bit confusing when you first sign up but after a few days you sort of get the hang of it. You have a "wall," or several different "walls" and people can post messages back and forth, "hey how's it going" and "what's new?" You can also send private messages, create albums and post pictures & videos. There are "applications" one can add to enhance Facebook even more; sending virtual drinks to friends, fortune cookies, tattoos... the list is endless. It's a great way to hook up with old friends and find new ones... give it a try :) I guess I should say I do not reap any benefits from you joining, I just think Facebook is really great and I felt like blogging about something tonight :) Have you signed up yet?
