I'm liking this Facebook thing

I joined Facebook one week ago. I thought it would be another myspace thing ~ a bunch of people I barely know wanting to be my friend in order to promote their band/music/cause/whatever. Wow - it's been a tremendous connection vehicle!

At first, I was accepting friend requests simply because he/she asked. Not anymore. I'm viewing FB as much more personal, intimate connection therefore being more selective. I've connected with classmates from high school ~ including a former teacher; former students from my years of teaching and interpreting; former co-workers, current co-workers and my very close friends.

However, the connections that are most special to me are the ones I'm making with my sorority sisters - Alpha Sigma Theta at CSUN. I can't believe I've found these women after almost 20 years! One sister has pictures posted - and I was in one of the pics. Good grief! My hair was biiig and very 80s (thank you KMS Ice hairfreeze). At the time I thought I looked goood. :)

Those were wonderful times; brief - too brief - but wonderful. I hope to connect with many more...

Thanks, Facebook!

Well, then, I'm honored to be your Facebook friend :) I, too, saw a picture of me from probably 4 years ago, and I was ROCKIN' the huge bangs. Oh, my goodness.

When I first joined FB, I was nervous about having to have my REAL name on there and out there for the world to see, but it's REALLY helped me catch up with people. I've gotten in touch with old HS classmates, friends from church, people I haven't talked to in ages. I learned to set my profile to private and watch the applications I add and it's great. I still have MySpace and probably always will, as I have different groups of peeps on both MS and FB. I am SUCH a social butterfly these days!! :)
