Your Mom's on Facebook
OK, maybe not YOUR mom, but my mom is, and my friend’s moms, and their friends.
Facebook isn't myspace, it's not just an online congregation of teenagers and twenty somethings that have taken skanky pictures of themselves with their cell phones in their car with hopes to lure a memeber of the opposite sex into a provocative on line relationship with the end of hooking up. It's cleaner than myspace, you don't get near the spam and is the best way of keeping tabs on people that you're interested in finding out what's going on in their life- but you're not compelled to pick up the phone and call them.
I’m on LinkedIn for business purposes but I’ve found facebook to be the absolute best way of keeping track of my friends(all four of them).
The beauty of facebook is it’s like a magazine filled with your friend’s pictures and updates. The ability to see what’s going on in old friend’s lives with out having to talk to them is handy when you’re short on time. It’s like blog but more dynamic, less in depth and only your friends can see it.
There are many who refuse to be on facebook for one reason or another, and this frustrates me. Just like I feel everyone should blog, I think everyone should be on facebook. If you have boycotted facebook, please leave me an insight as to why- because the way I see it is if my mom is on facebook…everyone should be.
*Pretty much everyone has seen the video below, and those of you who aren't on facebook probably felt left out because you didn't get the joke. Quit being a loner and join facebook.
