Image via WikipediaI've been commenting to my wife that it seems everyone has discovered Facebook…in the last 90 days. In that time, no less than 30 people have "found me" there. People from high school are crawling out of the woodwork and connecting. My wife has been on for a while but she's experiencing the same thing. I brought this topic up in my Blogging Class and people started snickering that it's true for them too.
Is this massive Facebook land rush happening in my world alone? Are there others out there who are being deluged by friends and other random people they've not heard from in years?
I'm really blown away by this. It makes me wonder if those "find your classmates" reunion sites are headed out of business due to this "insta-connect" Facebook world.
I've started using it more lately due to this pull effect. By default having to log in and confirm/deny connections has made me more aware of what Facebook is offering these days.
In fact, I found out some friends were engaged first….before anyone else…since I was in Facebook and saw that they'd changed status. I'm always the last to know (pay attention) to these things.
It felt kinda good to be in the know. Thanks Facebook.
I look forward to connecting with more of you all soon.
