Two months ago, heck even last month, if someone told me I was going to be checking my Facebook page everyday - several times a day; I would say "Yeah right". I had considered it to be a time vampire, but have discovered it is a time vampire if you get sucked into playing the games or commenting on every little posting your friends put up.
I started really posting right before Halloween and it just took off. I don't play the games, I don't do the quizzes and don't comment on every posting some one puts up. It all started with the Girl Scout service unit setting up a Facebook group to get information out to the leaders. I first told them "I don't use Facebook", but I started going on and was intrigued. First it was just my sisters & brothers in law and my kids, then my nieces & nephews. It then branched out to other GS leaders and other close friends.
I have yet to pull out the old high school yearbooks and start searching for old friends. I moved from Clark AFB, Philippines at the end of my Sophomore year and I am horrible at recalling names. I was very bad at keeping in touch with people after we were transfered from one base to another.
The final straw that I knew I was hooked was when I got my new Blackberry Curve phone. I discovered there was a free Facebook app. I immediately downloaded it, so now I can get notified when someone makes a comment on something I post or just check my account when I am on the road. I feel like such a hypocrite. Oh well, I find it interesting.
