Do you ever wonder why people on Facebook have it and then do very little with it? I do. I am not having a dig at all, I am just analysing really. Facebook, very obviously, is a social networking site, therefor the natural thing to do would be social right? I am not talking about putting your address, telephone number, credit card number, nude photos and sordid and graphic details of your sex life out there for everyone to have access to. There, naturally, is a level of decorum. (But hey, if that’s your thing, who am I to judge? )
I am not going to deny, I love Facebook. Truly I do. I don’t spend every living second staring at it and waiting for that next status update but each day I like to see how people are going, how my friends are and I am always amused by their, well, musings.
I had to chuckle when at the wedding people were saying to me “Right, your name has to change on Facebook now!” and “Why haven’t you updated your relationship status yet?” *grin* … Ummm maybe because I have only been married half an hour and I am still at the wedding!
*cough* I can not confirm or deny both Kelly and myself attempting to do it on our mobiles but both without success! *cough* Facebook makes life official
I have recently defriended 120 some odd people. It was actually a rather invigorating experience and I can’t explain why? I kept on people who matter to me. I kept on people I would actually take the time to talk to in the street. It isn’t that those 120 are people I dislike, but they are people I honestly can’t say I would go out of my way to say hello too… As awful as that sounds.
So to the people on my list remaining, you are there because I would sit down with you and have a cup of coffee.
Anyway, the point of this post is to say, you may call Facebook ‘Stalkbook’ or say that it takes over people’s lives but honestly, it is what you make it.
And here am I with my advertising prowess… If only Zuckerberg would share some of his millions with me.
For now, I will quite happily settle for my Mocha Fudge.
This really wasn’t very deep!
