Facebook

For better or for worse I have joined Facebook. I must say that I feel reduced in some way as I have spent time there, what with the mad grab for “friends”, the vacant gawking at the pages of those new e-chums, the obsessive compulsion to post “status updates.”

On the other hand, I have been able to make at least a one-sided connection with many people, including family, and that was the reason I joined in the first place.

Do I need another virtual time-waster? Not on your life. There may come a time when I perform a wholesale scaledown of my internet habits, but for now I’ll take the good and try to keep the bad under control.
