Time-suck, thy name is FaceBook
So I finally signed up for facebook, and I have to admit that it is uniquely addictive. My high school wasn’t very big, and it seems like just about everybody is already there. I let it get my email contacts and it found a whopping 55 matches! (I am really quite sure I don’t know that many people.)
I’ve been reading about facebook from a technical and business standpoint for years, so it was kind of weird to actually be in it. There are some things I can’t figure out, things I have to be overthinking (if facebook turns out to be as difficult for me as my short-lived affair with a mac was, I think I’ll cry), but the friend-finding stuff is pretty wild, and I especially like that you can have a conversation around any object—a status update, a photo, a new friend. The umpty-eleven views of it all are still kind of confusing, but it sure has been fun catching up with so many folks.
