Facebook, already - geez

Posted on: 2007-07-26

So I finally joined Facebook.

I have a number of more or less antiquated profiles on Friendster, Ryze, and LinkedIn (I think my Ryze profile is still pushing my Lotus Notes skills) and have resisted joining Yet Another Social Network. However, I have received multiple invites from non-geeky friends lately - and the last Rails Pub Nite had a lot of talk about Facebook as a web application framework - so I decided it was about time to join up.

Some thoughts:

I'm trying to keep from going too crazy on Facebook, and am trying to limit my Friends list to people with whom I've actually been friends for some time. So if you had a locker near mine in High School or we've met once or twice at an industry event, don't be offended if I don't instantly agree to be your friend. I'm just trying to preserve my sanity!
