Addict

Several days ago, the Matron got serious about Facebook. Now she wonders if there is a 12 Step Program for social networking?

I'm staying away from Facebook. So far.

Step One - back away from the keyboard....(don't!)

The rosey glow of facebook will fade soon. Trust me.

Becky said...

Ooh! Let's be friends!

I've got one. But so far, no addiction. Or, am I in denial?

I got dragged into facebook, kicking and screaming, buy some of my friends. And now I really enjoy it. It has proven a way for me to keep in touch with my Air Force spouse friends after we move away from each other. And I have reconnected with old friends that I lost due to growing up as an Air Force brat.

That said...I do need to take a break every once in a while.

MM - I check it about once a week now. I've had fun reconnecting with OLD friends - with exchanges like:

"I remember when I slept-over at your house and got scared and went home in the middle of the night"

(this would have been in 1968...)

I also keep up with my far-flung relatives - nieces who live in NYC and Las Vegas, a god-daughter in Atlanta, college buddies...

Have fun - it reminds me of when I first got email -totally consuming at the outset... now kind of a chore...

Friend me!

It might be a rush at first, but it doesn't last long.

One of my kids let me look at his Facebook page. 500 friends?? And they all write the same way - "So-and-so is going to a party tonight," "So-and-so #2 is having a blast skiing."
I can't handle the lingo and I don't have 500 friends!

Oh, be my friend. Um, I mean, I can stop anytime...

I'll look for you (yes, I am an enabler).

Just ignore all invites for applications. Spyware.

I'll be your friend if you promise to never send me plants, snowballs, fish or drinks. Movie quizzes are ok. ;)
