I have been a Facebook member for a few years now. Initially I became a member because someone invited me and I really wanted to see what it was all about. From the very start I found old friends and thought it to be wonderful, especially when it goes back to your school and college years. Facebook is actually a big gossip column….everyone knows everything about what’s going on in certain peoples lives!!!!
Sometimes it makes you laugh about who wants to be your friend. A couple of weeks ago I received an invite from someone that I have not spoken or heard about for years (naturally I never, ever hold grudges but years ago something happened that made me want to knock her over with my car!!) and am sure she felt the same way about me. I looked at the invite and thought ……what on earth makes her think we can be friends again? At the same time the saying about “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer” made me accept her invite. (Up to now she is still behaving herself) I now realize that there is a competition about who has the most friends on Facebook!
Over time I have become more cautious and made a rule that I won’t accept ANYONE I don’t know. You cannot trust the “so-called” social media out there…not when you receive faceless invites without reason!! How important can it be about just how many friends you have on your list? How many long lost friends have you met on Facebook?
