......eventually everyone does a facebook post
about 18 months ago, inspired by a workmate who was delightedly contacting dozens of old friends via facebook, i decided to sign up, only the people i looked for weren't on there. or there were 100 folks of the same name and with no photo. blow that for a joke, my facebooking was promptly sidelined and stayed that way for some time.
about six months on from that one or two of the young, hip crowd at church were stunned to find out that i had an account. that weekend i must have accepted 12 friend requests, mostly from people i see around but who i'm not actually friends with. they didn't leave messages for me and i wasn't exactly interested in their updates.
facebook lay mostly fallow again until just bob invited me to be a facebook buddy of his and i was soon inundated by friend requests from bloggers.
bloggers are better facebookers! their updates are more creative and they are more interactive....or maybe it's just that they were better friends to begin with?
just this week i have developed a love of the chat feature and it has been an absolute blast to chat with bloggers in real time. i hope to continue with that but i can't see myself developing any great addiction to crackbook in general.
blogging lets me talk at length about whatever it is that has got me going on the day and the people who read my blog think for a moment before commenting. i like that.
so, thats the story of kylie & facebook and no old friends ever did get in touch with me. i suppose they are just like me, life separates me from people and unless they are extra special i move on without really looking back.
