Yep, I have an account. I have crossed over to the Dark Side. Before you know it, I will be Twittering on like everyone else and even get an I-pod, or text messaging and picture things on my phone.
I see a few people I used to go to high school with. (All liberal, as I went to school in New Yawk.) Some people I go to church with. (All conservative, as I live in Missour-ah, where we LOVE John Ashcroft.) Assorted people from the blogs (mostly homeschoolers, because... you know. I have a homeschooling blog?). It's so much fun to see all these different people together in one place. I think as long as we stick to topics such as, "Which Plastic Army Man Are You?" that we can all get along just fine.
Speaking of which, sometimes I take the silly tests because they only take a minute or so. I've found out new things about myself, such as the fact that I am "truley" a leader, or that I am the Bazooka plastic army man, or that I'm a Mother Hen mom.
But Facebook has a ton of other "features" that I've never used and don't have time to learn right now. If I automatically receive a "farm," it must be in ruin. I think I accepted a chicken and never figured out how to send a gift back or feed the chicken. That was several weeks back and I think my chicken is dead. And did you know that my brother is a Mafia boss on one of those game things? I wouldn't mess with him if I were you. He can be pretty ... intimidating in real life (6 ft 4, shaved head, tattoos and an attitude... Hi, Jim!), so I can't imagine what he's like online with his inhibitions gone. You've been warned. :p
One thing that kept making me sad for a while when I first got onto Facebook were the "friend suggestions." Facebook kept "suggesting" that I add my uncle, who had just died. His entries were still fresh on the rest of my family members' posts. There was his smiling face with the caption "Add as Friend" beneath. *sniff*
Do you like Facebook? Have you found and connected with old friends?
