I've Committed Social-Geek Suicide...

Thursday, April 5, 2007 6:08 PM

I did the unthinkable...I caved into peer pressure...please forgive me.

I signed up with Facebook.

All my non-geek friends are doing it though, and its still kind of geeky right? I mean...its used through a browser at least...so that's somewhat technical?

There's some weird stuff about Facebook though...like how you have the option of "poking" someone. I really don't want to poke anyone, especially guys like Kyler or Shaun (I can't even give you a link to their Facebook page because you have to be registered to access the sites...which makes it like a private little club type thing).

Anyway, don't think less of me...I'm just trying to reach out to the non-geeky and give them hope in their lives.

First the Mac.....now Facebook...what's next? Socks with sandals? It's a slippery slope D'Arcy, and I'm afraid you already have on foot on it. 4/6/2007 9:27 AM | Donald Belcham

Will: It's not really like MySpace...MySpace is more like the MSNSpaces idea...Facebook doens't really focus on looks...its more a true social networking web application that allows you to associate with people and keep in touch...pretty kewl, although It's one of those things where unless you have alot of people using the service, it might not be worthwhile (i.e. having x number of friends who just post on spaces, x number of friends posting on MySpace, and then x number of friends posting on facebook...how many social networking sites does one person need to be a part of?)
