I recently opened a facebook account just to see what the hype was all about. It was amazing that almost immediately people from way back in my distant past started contacting me. A pleasant surprise so far.
I have had a few friend requests from folks in Tucson (I recently added an assisted living facilities Tucson page on a site that I do a little work for) that I may never have thought of again had they not contacted me through facebook.
I have several friends from when I worked at the Arizona Inn in Tucson who have probably changed names by now (thorough marriage) or that I have just lost touch with that I’d like to say hello to. Maybe they’ll find me on facebook.
Anyways, so far a pretty good experience.
