In 2007 I received an email from a South African friend living in China who I had worked with in the UK. (Globalisation has been great for my friendships) It was an invitation to join facebook. I can remember thinking it sounded interesting, but I had no idea what it was about. I entered my details thinking that I could always cancel it if it was pointless or dodgy.
Little did I know.
Mark Zuckerberg is pure genius.
Love Facebook. I love it because through it I am able to connect with friends near and far. I love catching up with old school friends that I had lost touch with. Friends that I had got along famously with, who thanks to facebook, I once again get along famously with. Cousins who live apart. We played together as kids and younger cousins I had once doted upon. It’s so hard to maintain such relationships with distance and time separating us. I love facebook for being the connecting point in between family celebrations, weddings or funerals.
I love status lines. Love trying to write something that will get a great response. Love reading other status lines. I love that I know what people are up to. I love sharing life, photos and … well … stuff.
(Dislikes. For the record. Stalkers. The Games. Being invited to play games. (And quizes, and all that type of stuff…) Bad spelling and grammar. Including my own. I hate that it’s hard to edit after you’ve published. Oh, and it can totally sap your time. If you’re not careful. I’m often not careful.)
So, the other day I decided it was time to share the facebook fun with the blog.
Caitlin’s Happy Heart has a blog page now. Feel free to swing on by and like the page. You can keep updated to short little updates, know when new posts come along, and share incidentals along the way.
So here’s the link. Come along, press the “like” button, share a comment. Tell your friends, share a link. I love having lots of readers, it inspires me to keep writing and sharing.
Are you a big facebook fan? What do you love/hate about it?
