If you are not on Facebook, you should be. Yes, you. You who have heard of Facebook but have said, "What's that?" or "Nah, just one more stupid thing to keep track of." Yes, you, you who are reading this and are probably not on Facebook, therefore proving you are over the age of thirty or a helpless Luddite, and probably both. And if you are reading this and you are on Facebook and do not know what a "Luddite" is, then shut the computer off and go read some books for a change, you young pup you. Or you could just click the hyperlink and avoid books. Sigh.
As far as I can tell after being on it now for quite a while, it is the communication medium of choice for anyone under the age of thirty. It is a "one stop shop" for chatting, messaging, sharing photos, etc. etc. etc. Yes, like everything on the Internet it can be a big time waster, but it is also very useful. It is the way I stay in touch with my two away-from-home children. So, check it out and if you are not on it already, and once you get signed up (it is free), look me up.
