Let's Face It

I'm a member of the extraordinary league of super cool people that have joined...Facebook.

When I was looking for people for my class reunion last year, I joined MySpace for a while, but I couldn't search for people using their names; instead it was listed by what that person had put for their name. Then I had to guess by the picture, then ask to be their friend or whatever. And after trying in vain to find a few people, I gave up that route of stalking.

Then recently I got a few emails saying I had been invited to join Facebook by a couple of people, and I thought, "Why not?" But honestly, I don't know how I feel about it. I guess if I put forth more effort into it, and added all the different applications and whatnot, then maybe it would be more awesome for me. But I don't know if I really want to do it all. I like my blog. I can add pictures, rearrange things at will, and it's easy enough. Facebook...all I really think about it right now is hmmm.

So what do you think? Has your experience been good, bad, or ugly? Have you really kept in contact or found people that way, or is it more like a chore, just one more thing to check and spend time on? Do tell!

I like facebook. At first I was abit overwhelmed because I didn't know how it worked and when I tried to find people it didn't work. THen my friend got on there and was telling me how many people she had found so I started to look at her friends and saw a bunch of mine. Then once I found more of my friends I looked at their friends and found tons of my friends. I've found so many of my old school friends and church friends from home so it's been great for me.

I know heather johnson is in face book, but I don't know much about it? I have an account, but don't know how to enter or all that jazz???

I signed up at one point then never used it. I am too busy. My blog is good for me :) I deleted my account and have no desire to rejoin.

At first, I hated it, because people wanted to be my friend, and then I never heard from them again. But now I like it, because I can shoot a quick message that will most likely be read sooner than an e-mail message would. Most people I know check their facebook account more than they check their e-mail accounts. For instance, I facebook-messaged three people last night about Pooh's brother that I wouldn't have been able to get ahold of otherwise. And I've already heard back from them. So it's very convenient in that way. A lot of people put stuff on other peoples' walls like, "When are we meeting at the restaurant tonight?" Stuff like that. Think texting, but a lot faster. :)
