Today, I did something I swore that I would never, ever do, and I really feel terrible about it. That's right, I signed up for Facebook. From the second I signed up, I felt so...dirty...on the inside. I could not believe that I joined a trend that I was doing such an excellent job of bucking. But yet, here I am a full fledged Facebook member (by the way, if you are reading this on my Facebook notes, click to see the real deal).
I resisted Facebook vehemently for several months. I claimed that it was too "Big Brother", I hated the idea of the site knowing so much about me for just about anyone to find out. I hated that it was such a trend. To be honest, I hated just about everything about it.
Keeping with human nature, we hate what we don't understand the most. I decided that I had finally heard enough of the hype and joined Facebook. After navigating the site for a brief amount of time, I became an instant convert. I simply love how user friendly it is. What I realized even more, was the fact that it is so incredibly popular is the best part about it. Everyone is on Facebook, therefore I can get connected to just about everyone I have ever met!!! After being a member for a solid 7 hours now I already have connected with 85 friends!!!! Including many that I have not spoken to in a very long time (you know who you are). I have joined several groups including the Aidyn Fan Club (Aidyn is the son of one of my Acadia friends, and a super awesome lad), and a couple of Camp Kodiak groups, one of which I was made an Officer for just being me. How hilarious is that?
To help me express just how widespread the popularity of Facebook is, here are some of my cyber-heroes Barats and Bereta talking about how one of them has Facebooked God.
However, I am rather concerned that Facebook will ruin my life. I have spent a long time on that site today, and assume that I will continue to do so. Ahh well, I suppose I never had much of a life to begin with. Hey it looks like someone just poked me...I gotta run.
Remember, Freedom is Slavery and 2 + 2 = 5.
Until next time,
