I’ve been using facebook for about three years now. I’m not really sure how I joined, but I did. Of course, I had no facebook friends at the time. One day, my friend Vito asked me to be his facebook friend. So, for the longest time, I only had one friend on facebook. Now that I think of it, I haven’t seen Vito since we became friends on facebook. Little by little, I accumulated friends. And now I really like facebook. I like it because I can keep up with my friends without having to actually see them in person. Not that I don’t want to see them, but some of them live so far away. We grew up in Chicago, but everyone seemed to move out the suburbs. I stayed put because I love Chicago so much. My friends think that I spend way too much time on facebook, but I don’t. It only seems like I do because I only spend a few minutes per day, but I am very efficient. facebook sends me a message when someone has commented on one of my comments or pics, and I immediately respond. I strike immediately and then immediately crawl back under my rock. You just never know how I may respond. As they say, leave sleeping dogs lie. (Whoops, dogs don’t sleep under rocks!) So, anyway, facebook is a great way to keep in touch with friends I avoid in real life! Would you like to be my friend on facebook?
