You know I have been thinking about Facebook and what it adds to my life. In some ways, it is terrific. I have found a bunch of lost friends, I know what everyone from high school is doing with their life now, I actually email daily with a couple of people that I was never even that close to when I knew them the first time. I even keep in touch with some family members that I only used to hear from once or twice a year.
On the con side, because I read people’s status updates, I don’t talk to them as much. I have lost the urge to go to a high school reunion to see people and catch up as I am already caught up. It also is a big time waster – one can spend hours reading other people’s pages and looking at their pictures. I try not to do that too much.
So Facebook, good or bad?
