Facebook keeps me in touch with the rels, but be careful

When Facebook first came onto the scene I thought: Not another one of these social networking sites! however I have recently changed my mind. I have one real friend on MySpace – I got rid of the one who is there when you sign up – but on Facebook I am adding more friends. Just today I wrote to a nephew I practically never see. It was only a couple of sentences, but that was plenty. If not for Facebook we would not be in contact at all, as it would be too much bother.

I have made some of my work chums my buddies. We could use Facebook to convey secret information if we didn’t want our bosses to have full knowledge of our activities. Some people on Facebook look like their pets. As for me, I’ve gone back in time:

 Once you have signed up make sure you look at all the settings so that you aren’t completely exposing yourself to the world. Also, if you decide that Facebook isn’t for you, that you really don’t want to participate in the dangerous world of online identity theft, it is mighty difficult to opt out.
