Facebook is OK in my book


I've been on Facebook for a while now. At first, I didn't really see much point to it but as time went by, I found it to be really useful. That's because Facebook is where my grandkids hang out!

I'm able to stay in touch with my 21-year old grandson down in Phoenix who recently got married. While I haven't met his new wife yet, I've chatted with her on Facebook several times so we're no longer strangers. His older brother who lives on the other side of North Dakota has a girlfriend and friends that he loves to photograph. This keeps me posted on how things are going in his life. At the same time, I keep up with two granddaughters in college on Facebook. Plus, my oldest granddaughter frequently posts pictures of her family and talks about what she's been up to. (Tonight she's packing up Girl Scout cookies to deliver.)

The fact is, I would have almost no contact with any of them if not for Facebook! This way I can keep up with them without intruding and we always have something to talk about. Win/win. So, Woohoo for Facebook!

Facebook is fantastic for this reason for sure! I am very thankful to have all my friends from Iowa on there since I live in Houston now, we can still interact and catch up with new photos and activities! I get to talk to my mom and dad as well since I don't always see them! It's really nice!

Facebook is good for keeping in touch with family. But on the whole I hate facebook and although I have an account with them, I don't really spend much time on it.

But I am glad that you enjoy it.
Much love

FB is great for keeping up with the family, but,with all these 'friends' who gravitate, I don't really know what to say.

It's a great way to connect, or reconnect with folks. Kids especially!

In the beginning I couldn't think what I would do with facebook, but now I keep up with my family, especially my teenage cousins. We post pictures and I have a real sense of their lives and friends. I am so pleased that they are happy to keep up with me this way.

Hi there, you don't know me, but we had a mutual friend, Euan. I am sad to say that he passed away tonight during his heart transplant. I thought that you would want to know.
