I’m Branching OutPosted: June 26, 2008
Ok, so I’m on Facebook.
If you read the last post, you know this. And if you didn’t read the last post, two things: now you know and shame on you.
But, back to the topic at hand.
This little Facebook thing is pretty incredible. Prior to this, I had registered for both Facebook and My Space but hadn’t done anything with either. Now I would have to say I have close to a full on addiction to the ‘book.
Technologically, I’m amazed at how it works. It sort of reminds me of the old shampoo commercial that many of my faithful readers are probably too young to remember…but basically, the screen keeps multiplying with someone saying, i liked it so i told two friends and she told two friends and she told two friends and so on and so on and so on….and the next thing you know, the TV screen is covered with faces.
How this little thing works is nuts. I know someone who knows someone that I might know. Boom, we’re friends. I’ve already connected with a couple of friends I haven’t talked to in a few years. All because of the ‘book.
And, there’s someone I know professionally who found me and I’m not even sure I know how she found me. But still cool. Very cool.
I can’t get in — at least not yet — to all the added components and applications you can do. I mean, I’m still trying to be a semi fulltime blogger — how am I going to find time to do all the other stuff the ‘book can do? It’s crazy, this 21st century tech stuff. Crazy I tell you.
I mean, Tortious sent me some flair the other day. I don’t even know what that means. I’m assuming it’s all good, because, let’s face it, my blog crush isn’t going to steer me wrong. Right?
A few of loyal readers have already ‘friended’ me and I thank you for that. Cool to be connected to some great people in another way.
What’s next you ask? Beats the hell out of me.
Not quite sure I’m ready for this Twitter thing.
Or am I?
