First a blog now facebook

What next?

For no particular reason I have never been interested in social networking sites, or writing a blog. However, about a year ago a friend sent me an invitation to join Linkedin. I signed up and within a couple of days I was back in touch with people I had not seen in decades.

I played about with Linked in for a few hours. Checking things out and generally getting a feel for it. After this I stopped using it and pretty much only touch it if someone sends me a request to "connect".

Now fast forward to two days ago and a friend tells me she uses facebook daily. She said it is an great way to keep in touch with distant friends. So, I signed up for an account and, as was the case with Linkedin, I have found myself in touch with people I have not seen nor heard from in a decade or more.

I wonder how long facebook will hold my interest for...
