I am on Facebook finally. I did not think much of social networking in the past. I have already got a blog going on Windows Live since 3 years ago and do not see the need to jump onto Facebook.
What changed me? My daughter started the ball rolling and I thought I must as well see what Facebook can offer.
Facebook connects me to my friends easily. I am surprised at some friends who have an account. Some I expect to see as they are early adopters of anything IT or internet-related. But for some, I least expected. I have family members who are already avid users, again surprised.
Facebook allows searches of school mates, colleagues and members of various organisations. This way we connect with long-lost friends. This I find useful.
