Facebook

Let's see, I just connected with the girl who chased me down on Sadie Hawkins day at sleepaway camp - in 1971.

I connected with one of my neighbors who is married to a guy from my class in college with whom I just connected.

And my 14-year old daughter has topped the 1000 mark for friends. I kid you not. I don't think she has even met 1000 people but they are all real life friends and friends of friends and friends of friends of friends.

My wife is addicted and I myself seem to check it a few times per day. Yet, I have not made a single business deal on any social media ever (I am on LinkedIn but tweeting and twittering is just beyond my need to know. "Oh, I just had grapefruit for breakfast. Come to my seminar!")

A new way to go back in time or the fall of Western civilization?

Never friend anyone under 30. If they friend you, that's another story. You may get TMI (too much information).

Hey GS751 - guess my age.

RPS - My kids won't friend me and I won't friend them. Who needs them seeing that party pic from college? You know, the one sponsored by Jose Cuervo.

Or maybe they might think I had a life at one point? Nah!
