Whither Facebook? (A New Face on Facebook)

"I don't know what I'm supposed to do with it."

My friend smiled and said, "that's something you don't hear a lot".

That brief discussion took place a few weeks after I had finally signed up with Facebook back in April. ("Three ninety-five?!")

I believe in actually meeting people. Face to face. Coffee/tea to coffee/tea. What a stunning concept, especially so given that I had nothing to do with its creation.

"But it's a great way for old friends to find you", explained another friend of mine when I wondered out loud whether it was worth me signing up for the master social media site -- sucker of personal information. I retorted with: "Web search." (An old buddy found me a few years ago by Googling my name. That easy, even if he did get a few false "pings" due to a Simon St. Laurent of note who's in the XML business.)

For what it's worth:
