Cherri, just found your blog via Quilt News, and I'm cracking up here, because for the past 6 days, I've been doing the facebook thing too! My thoughts are a little different though: I wonder if all the people sending ME friend requests even know who I am, considering that they're from my high school days and back then, I used two different names than I use now (a nickname, and my maiden name of course) and I look nothing like the same person at all! It's too funny really.

And yes, my kids (a but younger than yours at 12 & almost 17) seem almost offended that I'm on facebook. I guess they just think it's too weird.

"Have quilters taken over facebook?" I LOVE that! ROFL! I'm off to explore the rest of your blog!

Welcome to the FB insanity! At first, I just gave my mom my password so she could spy on my sister and all my friends, but she AND my dad caved and got an identity of their own that they share. FB is spreading to other generations!

I totally know where you're coming from. My daughter wanted me off as well and she doesn't even have a facebook. I'm surprised at all the older fb people there are, and the quilty people. I hope blogging doesn't go by the wayside. FB is kind of hard to figure out.

Check out this Time Magazine article from Feb. 12: http://bit.ly/C9Vx
Your girls are wrong- you totally belong on Facebook. They are the ones that aren't cool anymore!

MaryBeth

It is totally addicting. I read the Time article and agree 100%.

I work in the Young Adult room of the library and have to at least have a familiarity with all these new technologies. But I am constantly joining and cancelling my accounts.
It IS very hard to juggle everything!
But I also find many of them repetitious. That is, being on Facebook is kind of like having a mini-blog and email rolled into one. But I already have a blog and two email accounts. And I'm not that ionterested in A)knowing what that kid from high school is doing, or B)revealing so much about myself to strangers (or work coleagues). I do twitter, but not from my phone because the tweets were driving me crazy.
I think that just because the technoloy is there, doesn't mean we are required to use it.

Its all so funny. I somehow got a face book account but nothing is on there. Every now and then I get an invitation to be someone's friend, or that they want to be my friend and I just delete it. Its not that I don't want to be friendly, I just don't have a clue what they are talking about. Sometimes I get an email that my daughter has written on my wall...and I don't even know how to look it up. I think I will just stick to blogging.

You know, I have decided that I don't have to keep up with every darned thing out there. I'll admit, when email started up years ago, I thought, No way do I need or want that. Now I cannot live without it. When everybody started doing blogs I thought, No way, I do not need that nor want it. I now have one, but could likely live without. But it is a handy place to post items for friends to see. However, I still feel like Facebook is one of those things I can and plan to live without. What creative person needs one more time-suck taking them away from creating???

Diane

Oh J.Caroline beat me to it! I love the Time article. It is very true, Facebook is for those of us well out of High School. :)

BJ Lantz

Ok ~ I have to update my comment! Captain Hubby came home last night and shocked me by saying that he "has" to join Facebook. I said, "huh?" He received a barrage of emails yesterday from former high school classmates (one succeeded in finding him last week and apparently told everyone they knew). So he spent half the evening trying without success to confirm links they'd sent him. He's a smart tech guy, so I am sure he'll figure it out. Me ~ I'm still not interested :-) BUT, that Time article link above was hilarious - thanks for sharing!
