Well, for one, I have been reconnected with old friends from high school, and I swear it is like we are back in high school again. Funny how some things never change.
I'm also happy to be part of a group that is experimenting with using Facebook as a learning experiment. As a member of the training industry, I feel that it is imperative that we look at social learning as a huge opportunity and quickly accept it and find ways to leverage it. But I digress...
Facebook is fun and a great escape from the challenges that we are facing in today's economy. I enjoy reading what my friends are up to. And, since I am horrible at keeping in touch via snail mail, phone and email, Facebook provides me with the opportunity to let my loved ones know that I am thinking about them with comments, pokes and status updates.
