What is the big deal with Facebook? Lots of people told me I needed to be on Facebook. So I signed up. Somehow it went thru my address book and offered me the opportunity to be "friends" with anyone who I have in my contacts. Oh joy! I did send a request to be friends to a few people. I also got a random request from some loser that I did not know.
Now that I'm there, I don't see the point. So far, people have thrown snow balls at me (WTF?), poked me (more WTF) and it asks me what I'd doing right now and thinks I need to post it...Chris is being a mouse potato, duh! or some such nonsense.
I did put my blog address on my profile. Now, according to Google Analytics, people are coming to my blog and lurking around. No one new has commented and I got weirded out by not knowing who is watching me. I went back to Facebook and checked more into Privacy settings and now feel more secure that only friends can see my information. It's hard being a virgin.
I'm not sure I'll keep my Facebook page. It's kind of pointless as I'm not trying to network for a new job or find new friends. I much prefer lurking around blogs and peeking in at strangers lives without really knowing much reality about them. It's like dating, you can pretend to be anything you want, you just don't want anyone to move in and find out about the real you.
