Well, I finally signed up for a Facebook account. Like I didn’t have enough to stay on top of. There has got to be a lesson in there somewhere. I had obviously heard about it, but my contention has always been that I don’t spend enough time talking to the friends I have and can see, why do I need more? Plus, there is something disturbing in the sign-up process when it says “You have 0 friends”.
The more I think of it, the more I wonder if that film Wall-E isn’t somehow prophetic. People sitting around, looking at screens, communicating with each other, instead of just turning and talking face to face.
Ok, enough of the bashing of Facebook. I’ll keep an open mind, give it a reasonable amount of time and effort, and see what happens. If two months go by and I still have “0 friends” I’ll probably be sad though.
