I write this post today with a sheer curiosity as to what people's opinions about facebook and "friending" dilemma's. I recently joined facebook a few months ago for the sheer fact that I could keep track of some of the young women around me. I figured, if I wanted to know what they were up to, then I better be where I can see them. So, I signed up for Facebook.
My most recent concern is the "friending" portion of facebook. Sure, I have a huge list of people that I love to be friends with on facebook, but then there are others that I ask myself "why are you asking to be friends with me?"
For example, I have a couple people that wanted to friend me that I knew of their name in high school, but we never talked, we never hung out and now you want to be friends with me? Huh? I've been contacted by old boyfriends, guyfriends, people I never even knew their name in high school and now they want an open door access to my life. I have made the choice to turn a few down, would you have done the same?
I do not mean in any way to be criticizing facebook and my friends that are on it. I am just bothered by a few things and I am wondering, Am I the Only One?
Also, I am extremely intrigued by the "Suzanne is............................" sentence. It amazes me what some people put in that one little sentence. Some are really hilarious, some are helpful into one's lives and some are just stupid. Honestly, I really don't want to know when you are drinking or are going out to "party." It is not my place to approve or disapprove any or their actions, but of all the things that are happening in their life, THAT is what they put down as their one sentencer. It kills me!
So talk to me people, am I too sheltered and need to crawl back to my bubble of bliss, or are things just getting a little strange here?
