Today was my first day back at Facebook since my old computer had problems. It could be my new computer but things looked somewhat different on FB today, but alas, I know life is about change. Generally, I stop by every day and spend a few minutes there, the same on Twitter. I might post a link to a new blog on Crystalinks, or write a personal comment. As with everything else, people use social networking to deal with reality - they love the stories - the dramas of life - the obstacles - being heard and recognized - and all that you see on reality TV and talk shows. Not my thing.
Friend requests ... There were so many requests I was amazed - yet easily went through the list. I usually have the maximum number of friends - 5,000 and add more if the number reduces which it generally does. Most requests come from healers who still live in a part of the grid that caters to wounded souls. I only connect with people who ...
- I know
- Have a face image in their profile that I connect with in a positive way
- Use their real names, not some metaphysical pseudo-name they made up to define themselves - like Bliss Full.
Now the question arises ... Would I be part of Facebook if not for Crystalinks? Probably not. I never chat - don't tend to answer email and have enough friends. Do you think the motive behind Facebook was to gather information about people in an easy way? I know the positive social ramifications and how families and friends have reunited - but is there an underlying agenda?
