I succumb to Facebook (partly--)

After years of resistance, I’ve given in and established a presence on Facebook, as many of you have already noticed. The primary reason is due to my interest in Steampunk, and, although organizations such as TeslaCon and Milwaukee Steampunk Society have perfectly good websites, the only way to stay current with what’s going on is to follow Facebook.

The thing that has surprised (and somewhat dismayed) me is the number of people that immediately popped up as friend requests or recommended friends (some of whom I haven’t heard from in more than a decade) let alone friends of friends and members of groups, even though I have staunchly refused to let Facebook have access to my own address book.

So, if I haven’t “friended” you, please don’t be offended. I’m still figuring out how to drink from this fire hose, and I’ve already un-friended one close local friend because of the overwhelming number of “cute” pictures she forwards. So, I’m feeling my way.
