FACEBOOK

I am joining the 21st Century, kicking and screaming all the way. My Real Estate office is encouraging everyone to join Facebook as a way of networking and I am clueless. I have joined, but find it rather humiliating to send requests to my children to "become their friend" or ask them to be my friend. What if they say "no"???? Just a thought. Once I get friends..I have 2 already (aren't you impressed ?) I have no idea how I am supposed to go about networking with them. Any clues? Think I will go buy some nice wine...OK, cheap wine, but with a nice bouquet and good legs.

Later,
Janet

  3. You are so cute! I know absolutely nothing about Facebook, or Twitter, or My Space.

    I do know about wine! We had a lovely St. Francis Cabernet 2004 tonight....

  6. hey I'm always looking for friends on facebook. It is a great way to network. I find it friendlier than linkedin, but i do both! A slave to social media. Anyway, I friended both of my older kids and only one said yes! So look for me!

  11. I'll be your Facebook friend too... I just joined recently myself and am not quite sure what to do with it yet... You can find me via email mayasblog@cox.net there, I'm also a New Englander (well born in Switzerland but here since 1996).

  14. Hey
    I like your post. Haven't found any cutzy crafts on here. Not that I am against those types of things, but it is kind of refreshing to find someone who is original to the 50's and 60's and speaks from experience.
    Yeah!
