At the urging of my young Italian cousin, Luisa, I have recently joined FaceBook. I have been on LinkedIn for a while, thinking of it as a professional network. The function of LinkedIn has been to reassure me that as I face a huge transition in my life, there are people to whom I am connected–and that those bonds will follow me wherever I go. But what does FaceBook do? My husband John asked me “do you like it?” The answer is…I don’t know yet. Clearly, it makes me notice the difference between being old and young. There is a whole new lingo to learn (really, what does it mean on FaceBook to tag someone? To poke them?) and then there is a level of discourse that does not really conduce to deep conversations. I still have to find my way around it.
Would love to hear what other people are getting out of these social networks and how they use them….
In the meantime, I remain confident that
Life is Amazing! Live Well.
