The inevitable happened.
I joined Facebook tonight. Okay, I’ll admit… I do think it is pretty cool. I’m not going to write about how cool it is or why I like it since I am sure there are plenty of people doing that. But, I will say a friend of mine recommended I join and I’m glad he did. Actually, it came about since he was showing me a Facebook Widget for his iPhone. I was surprised to see many names I recognized in his “friends” list. It look appeared it was the thing to do…
My wife has a MySpace account. I like the idea of MySpace, but I just don’t want to deal with the “overhead” MySpace has… “Thanks for the add, man!” Facebook seems to be between LinkedIn and MySpace; that is something I could deal with.
Now, I don’t think there is anything wrong with MySpace; I just haven’t been bitten by the bug. I have thought about (for a long time) setting up a pseudo-name and going to town, but given how much I got on my plate these days I don’t feel like I have the wherewithal to commit to it. At least with Facebook, I see it more as a “professional” social network. Oh well.
If you’d like to be my “friend” on Facebook, look me up. You know how to find me!
