|Giving in to facebook
||[Jan. 31st, 2009|10:02 pm]
Today, I have finally given in, and joined facebook. So, all those of you who've been bugging me about it for ages can finally be happy!|
To explain why I haven't been on facebook so far, one needs to go back quite a long way in time. I was on livejournal pretty much before the term "social networking" had come into being, and it worked well. Then, when the first generation of dedicated social networking sites came along, I joined most, and watched them burn brightly for a few weeks, then fade away.
So, when facebook came along, I decided I'd sit this one out, and wait for the next one to come by, which hopefully would stay around for a while. As time went by, I kept hanging on for facebook to fade away, though I have finally had to come to the conclusion that it probably isn't any time soon. With this in mind, I've finally joined, on the grounds that waiting for the next one is going to be quite a long wait after all!
