Facebook comes of age

I feel like I just spent a virtual weekend with Beverly and Bruce Cottle at their vacation getaway at the shore in Delaware. I wasn't there in person, but the numerous pictures that Beverly posted to Facebook today were amazing, and it gave me a sense of what it must be like to vacation with them at their home in Lewes, DE.

I also got to attend a pig roast with my long lost friend, Wink, again in a virtual sense, because she invited me to join her on Facebook a few days ago. I haven't seen Wink for more than 20 years, but hopefully if a few more of you connect to her on Facebook, we'll see her at our 2012 (35th) reunion. It sure felt good to reconnect with her after all these years.

I've been really enjoying the ease-of-use of Facebook and I appreciate the periodic invitations I've gotten to join some of your inner circles and getting to see your pictures and status updates.

If you haven't used Facebook yet, I highly recommend it. At one time, I thought Facebook was just for the kids, but now I'm finding more, ahem, 'mature', people are joining it.

Sure, we were all blogging here back in 2002 when Facebook was still a gleam in the eye of some Harvard nerd, but Facebook really seems to have come into its own in the past year or two with nearly everyone getting on board. Please feel free to invite me to your inner circle (if you feel I'm worthy of that honor :) and take a look into my connections for any familiar BOR77 names. At last count, I had over a 17 of them, and it seems to grow each week.

I think it would be great to stay connected with as many classmates as possible on Facebook. If you've been a hold out, please join now and I can guarantee you won't be without quite a few friends from way back (but do let us know you've joined so we'll know to connect with you!)

Well, well, well, what do we have here? A Zuckerberg fanboy pimping Facebook? I tell you, that back-stabbing atheist stole the idea for Facebook from the Winkelvoss twins. If you don't believe it, just read Ben Mezrich's new book, Accidental Billionaires, released just last month. Trust me, it's a real page turner. If you don't have time for that, here's a Rolling Stone article with a summary of his shenanigans.

So go ahead, host your personal data on Facebook, but you'll never catch me on it!
