This cracks me up. I have to admit, I'm a bit of a Facebook junkie. It started innocently enough... Sweet Son hit the age where he decided he wanted to be on Facebook, and as every parent should, I followed suit in order to keep a watchful eye on his internet activities. Only problem is, three years later he is RARELY on facebook, and I am on every day.
I have several friends who have given it up for lent (blasphemy!)... and while I'll admit it can be a time sucker, and in some cases detrimental (if your posts make me crazy, I just hide you!), I have found it to be a great tool in my life. I have happily reconnected with friends from other decades (some I would rather forget after being tagged in old photos where my hair is... well... QUESTIONABLE).

These days I "visit" with faraway family and some of my dearest high school, junior high, and childhood friends nearly every day. I look forward to "coffee talk" in the mornings with a group of girlfriends who are all up way too early getting their kids ready for school... some of whom I hadn't even SEEN in 20 years prior to the FB revolution. Instead of just catching up in an annual holiday card, I am "virtually" part of their daily lives and they are part of mine. And with the crazy lives most of us lead, my neighbor and I joke that we talk more on facebook than we do in person...
well, at least we're talking!
Like it or not, it has become the way of the world... the recent revolution in Egypt which was driven by social media astounded me. To think that a government was overthrown and it all started on facebook and twitter... well, that's kind of mind boggling. I'm not planning to overthrow anyone, but I do find out tons of useful (and not so useful) information from my FB connections... and being that my business is almost completely
virtual, it has become something of a necessity.
