A couple of weeks ago, an old friend contacted me via facebook. Hmmm, I wasn't even aware that I had a facebook, but apparently, at some point or another, I signed up. And there was little lonely me, nothing on my home page, no friends (How sad is that??!).
Cut to yesterday: I was reading Hello, Elements (as I am wont to do at least once a week), noting that the most recent post was about their facebook, and inviting users to become a fan. Hmmm, I'm a fan of Elements, so I figured, why not? But seriously, how pathetic was I, now with a whopping 2 friends (Mattio was my second) and still no real home page.
So late last night I set out to change all that: I went through my address book and found friends on facebook (I think I'm up to 9 now! Woo hoo!); I updated my home page a bit. And now, it's completely addicting. Now I realize why I didn't have a facebook in the first place: this thing takes up way too much time!! There's all kinds of friends, activities, messages, walls, applications... way, way, WAY too much going on there!!
I think it's a great idea for networking (it's like a fun LinkedIn!), but it's way too much for me on a daily basis. I think I'll try weekly and see how that works out. In the meantime... come on over, and be my friend.
