Be my friend
Did you ever think you would have 3300 friends? That's a lot of Christmas cards, and the birthdays to remember ... wow!
I'd love to know what people think of Facebook and other social networking sites, especially readers.
Do you like to play games on the site? I've been resisting all the farm games and Mafia wars my "friends" are trying to drag me into. Similarly, the long quizzes where you answer 25 questions about yourself, but all the answers have to be one word and begin with X.
Or sending virtual roses and candy. I'm sorry, but I'll take my chocolate real hand to real mouth, please.
Does anyone really like and use all the FB features? My feeling is that they're like chain letters (which I always crumpled up and threw away in the days of paper letters.)
But I'm willing to change if anyone out there really cares.
I certainly like the sharing of photos and news about books and events, but much of the peripheral activity is simply not interesting.
If you look at my page, you'll see that I have No Ratings, No Chucks Sent, and No Quiz Rank. Should I be worried? What am I missing?
How about you? How much time do you spend on FB or other sites like it? Do you set a limit? Or do you get carried away?
