I’m still enjoying the holiday season, but wanted to thank several people who have asked me to become their Facebook friend.
Sometimes I feel like my family might be the last hold-outs from Facebook and other social networks. We simply don’t belong to those internet clubs. Don’t get me wrong>>> We keep up with our friends, we just don’t keep up with them through internet social groups. We write (and talk!) to family and friends, but we don’t “connect” with them through those sites. We don’t have any particular reason for not joining them, we simply don’t want to.
I mentioned before that one of my daughter’s professors required that the class contact each other through Facebook. So, clearly, she became a member during that semester, but she quit right after that obligation was fulfilled.
I have been asked by several Cozy Mystery readers to join their groups of friends on Facebook, but since I am not a member, I clearly have not. The only real reason I have for not joining is that I already find myself spending way too much time sitting at my computer, and fear that if I were a member of a social network, I would spend even more time seated in front of my computer screen.
But thank you to all of you who have invited me to join your groups!
