OK, what the heck is the deal with Facebook?
I'm a thirty-something year old housewife and mother of four and my college friend sent me an email to see her Facebook page. So, after some significant hurdles of creating passwords and finding out who in my email address book might already belong to this teenage phenomena, I got to see her page.
MEANWHILE, pretty much everyone in my address book got an email saying I wanted to be their "friend." On top of all that, it was pretty much just MINUTES before the majority of them were responding.
Something's going on here.
My next door neighbor has a Facebook page - and she's 54 years old!!!
OK, I've been warned that I'll become addicted, but after perusing a couple of my "friends" pages I have to say...
I don't get it.
What's the attraction or addiction? Why has this flooded beyond teenagers who are growing up with no face to face relational skills, to real mid-life adults who have jobs, marriages, kids and mortgages???
Leave me a comment and tell me please... because as it stands now, I'm quitting dear "friends."
