When Live Spaces made their latest changes to the format, my husband claimed that they were just trying to make their site more like Facebook in order to compete. He has had a Facebook page for quite a while; so coming from him, the comparison made sense. He said he likes Facebook because all these people from high school have been coming out of the woodwork to be his friends.
I finally bit the bullet and created a Facebook page. And he's right. If only my old high school yearbook had survived all these many years! Being able to jog my memory with the way some of these people who've been friending me looked back in the day would help me better decide whether to confirm or ignore their friend request. The past few days anyone with any reference that even remotely rings a bell gets the confirm button. It's amazing who turns up as a friend.
In checking out the friends on my husband's page, he has a mix of men and women. The men on my page number in the round number. Four to be exact. It turns out he has one, possibly two, maybe three, women on there with whom he did some mattress dancing. That in addition to his already full bevvy of gal pals.
Whether we ever dated or not, if you're male, send me a friend invitation.
