Okay, I finally did it. Reluctantly, I joined Facebook. I joined mainly to connect with family. I probably also will accept friend requests from other people I already know but I’m not at all interested in the Who Has The Most Facebook Friends competition. I’m still figuring out how the thing works. I don’t expect that I will spend much time on it. We’ll see.
A while back (a month or more) I got a couple of invitations to join Google+ circles, whatever that is. I’m considering it only because the person who invited me is someone I like. Maybe I’ll join and then forget about it for months at a time like I do my Twitter account. Yeah… that’ll work.
It’s not really that I’m anti-social; it’s just that I have this blog and that seems like enough. It seems to me that the people who really like me and want to see what I’m doing and what I have to say will come here. But Facebook is supposed to be the big thing, the current great online gathering place so… well, as I said, we’ll see how it goes.
