Yes, I have officially been booked. Facebooked that is. I’ve resisted signing up for Facebook until this weekend. I always considered it the hang-out for 20 somethings who finally figured out how uncool MySpace really is. One of my ex-military friends, who is the same age, mentioned there were a lot more of my former friends over on Facebook, so I decided to give it a try.
Within 24 hours, I had hooked up with almost a dozen friends I haven’t seen in over a decade, and serveral of them from even longer. The built-in chat feature is pretty cool, but is also no where near as realiable as a true IM client. I’d get communication errors fairly frequently.
It was really interesting to see the path a lot of my ex-military friends had taken. And also to see the families. We were all a bunch of dorks in our early 20s, and it is fun to see how most everyone had aged gracefully in to our 40s.
So yes, I’m booked. I’m looking forward to finding a few more old friends. But I still refuse to actively use Twitter. I’ll leave that to the ritalin crowd.
