I’m a Facebook newbie — some might even call me an anti-Facebookie. It’s not that I’m anti; it’s that I didn’t get on board with all the hype and hullabaloo.
I caved and joined the craze not too long ago and I have to admit, it’s been nice to find old friends and connect with new ones. I still prefer the person to person hangout and interactions, but Facebook does its thing. I even reconnected with an old high school bud and actually met up with him in person. Yeah, wow.
Facebook did not just help this sista out — it was instrumental in reuniting a long-lost son with his Vietnam Vet Dad. Peter McKibben was able to connect with his long-lost son via messages on Facebook. I like a happy ending as much as the next person, and I’m happy for McKibben and the happy ending he got, thanks to Facebook.
