I was in town shopping a couple of days ago, and ran into a woman I used to work with. (Yes, dear readers, I was not always the happy-to-be-home, barefoot mom you see before you. Once upon a time, believe it or not, I used to be a three-pots-of-coffee-a-day, five-inch-stilettos-with-a-charcoal-grey-pencil-skirt-wearing, everyone-comes-to-me-for-the-answers, business woman. Sometimes, I really miss those high heels.) It was so nice to see this dear friend, and I would've loved to get caught up with her (I've given birth twice since I saw her last!) but there was no time for either of us.
Hastily, she asked, "Are you on Facebook?"
"No, are you on Twitter?"
"No. You need to get on Facebook, girl!"
And the truth is, I've been thinking about it. She's not the first person that's asked me to join Facebook, and I'm getting the feeling that she might not be the last. I see people talking about it all the time, and I'll admit that I am a little curious. But let's face the facts...between blogs, our farm website, couponing, bookkeeping, homeschool and Twitter, I'm spending a guilt-inducing amount of time on the computer as it is (and I still don't feel like I do enough....I certainly don't get to go around visiting my blog friends as much as I'd like, that's for sure!)
So, I'm asking all of you that are already on Facebook. Is it worth jumping into, or just another time-waster? What do you get out of it? What's so great (and not-so-great) about it? I'm really looking forward to seeing what you have to say about it. Thanks!
