I was always skeptical of joining Facebook, assuming it was basically a glorified version of MySpace, that homeland for chattering 14-year-olds the world over. But when an increasing number of my friends signed on, I decided to finally jump off the bridge along with everyone else. I can't stand being left out.
In the 30 hours or so since I signed up, though, it's actually been a lot of fun. I've been able to re-connect with several people I had fallen out of contact with and vice versa. And I now officially have 22 "friends" - almost all of them my actual friends. Amazing.
