OK now, they aren't so bad after all.
I just joined both FaceBook and MySpace this past week, without knowing exactly why I should, expect that everything I was hearing told me that it was important.
And sure enough, it is.
I have been browing around, finding friends of mine that I had no idea were into social networking.
Then, I discovered friends of theirs, some of whom I have met, and a few others I have seen here and there.
Most, I have not met, but based on the networks that I am finding, I have probably been in the same party with them at some point or the other.
I guess this makes me a recent convert to this excellent method of keeping up with people who are widely dispersed. As I play around with both services, I can see where they have both created a way of connecting that just did not exist before... this is not the replacement of one method by another.
They both have created an alter-world that I am positive will change the way people relate out here in non-cyber space.
Stay tuned... and look for me on either service if you have a moment, and have already joined. (Facebook seems to be more to my liking at the moment.)
