There have been so much buzz from friends about Facebook. Seems everyone is on it, or Myspace. Emails come in from friends requesting me to be their friend. Aren’t I already their friend? Do I have to be on Facebook to be their friend?
So I succumbed to the pressure. I signed up for Facebook. My page is rough and I don’t anticipate to be there much. The way I look at it is this: at least I’m there for others, as a friend, in the event they want to reach out to me. And isn’t that’s what a friend should do? Besides, I’ll have my 25-year class reunion in a couple years and it’s a good way to keep in touch with classmates.
As I was checking out my reader today, I saw an updated post from Joe Friel saying that he is now twittering. Ugh!! I was so disappointed. I really love reading all the wonderful information that Mr. Friel posts on his blog. I hope he continues to pass his knowledge about training and cycling on his blog, even if at a lesser frequency. (As least I’ll have his book soon.)
I did go to his twitter page. I just don’t get the twitter thing. It just seems like a lot of idle dribble and doesn’t seem like the forum to deliver a wealth of information.
Facebook reminds me of that as well.
I mean no offense to anyone. Truly I don’t.
Though I’m sure many people think that this blogging thing is a little odd. I mean I’ve tried to convince my mother and my sister to check out my blog from time to time, which would give them a good handle on what’s going on in my life, but they don’t seem too interested. Or they just don’t get it.
So, let me ask the question to you: what do you think about all of these ways to make your life public? If you are here then perhaps you are a fellow blogger? Do you also twitter and/or have a Facebook/Myspace page?
