Thank You, Facebook
November 23, 2011
I may have mentioned this in a previous blog. Sorry if I'm repeating myself. I created a Facebook account a couple of years ago. I did it just to hear my youngest offspring complain that I should not get on Facebook because, of course, Facebook is for the young! (Well, just you wait. Tide and time wait for no man, buddy.)
He howled for a couple of weeks, actually, that I would insert myself into his demesne. He would not "friend" me! And who would possibly "friend" me? Finally, he deigned to add me to one of his pages, but he maintains a second page to which I am not privy. That's okay. Most of that talk is about the Green Bay Packers. And since Title Town is not on my bucket list of destinations, I'm not complaining. Disclaimer: no insult is meant to the people of northern Wisconsin or any GB fan. You're great people!
I digress. I really wanted to state how thankful I am for Facebook, despite its constant and annoying innovations. While I'm concerned about the privacy issues that are much discussed, I have reconnected with old school friends and talked a lot with my cousins in other cities. I keep up with former staff members who have moved out of state. I smile at the adorable pictures of friends' adorable babies, and I watch videos of my daughter who is the vocalist in a local band. Sometimes, I comment on the state of the economy, and sometimes I'm just silly! I am often buoyed by the faith-filled and uplifting comments my friends send to me and others. Most of all, I love interacting with my far-flung family through this amazing alternative to telephone calls, letter writing, and regular email. LIKE.
Thanks for reading.
