Oh My, Facebook is Taking Over the World!

I will admit it, I’m hooked on Facebook. And finding people that I went to kindergarten with is kind of interesting. And I love seeing pictures of my friend’s kids. And even sometimes I like what someone is thinking and doing that day.

On just a bit more of a serious note, Facebook is a powerful tool. The more people that use it, the more powerful it gets. And many more people are using it. Here is a great article that came out today called, How Facebook is taking over our lives

I just suggested to a community group that they have a Facebook page to promote their activities and build community. It’s all about building relationships and so many groups are taking advantage of Facebook…. very effectively and successfuly.
