Yes, I use facebook. And yes, I used to be addicted to it. I don’t like that you have to use your real name though so mostly it is only given to people I actually know (with the exception of some people online). I think it’s cool to see how people have grown up. I recently found people that I went to elementary school with. And that has brought back some crazy memories. ( A guy even remembered that he had asked me to marry him on a Valentine when we were in Grade One or something and asked me to marry him now…)
BUT, I have a way that you shouldn’t use facebook. I was going through my mail the normal way I do every morning on Friday and I noticed I was tagged in a photo. My first one ever. So I went to facebook to see what it was…well it was a picture of me as a little girl with my grandfather. And then I read the caption, ‘In Honor of Poppa’…Which totally meant that he died. What a crappy way to find out your grandfather died through facebook like that. So I was searching around there and found his obituary so I knew it was true. (This is my second grandfather that has passed in seven months now.)
So, please tell people before you post that their grandfather died…PLEASE!!
What do you use facebook for?
