Addicted to Facebook?!? Who me? Naaaaah. Never.
Twitter, Facebook, Plaxo, LinkedIn, Gather, Authors Den, MySpace, Good Reads, Digg, JacketFlap, Nothing Binding, Red Room...
Okay, you caught me. I belong to all of these and more. I've learned to control my addiction, however, and usually concentrate on two or three a week. I don't believe I'm addicted to Facebook, but admit to snousing what my friends are up to even before I check e-mails!
From book releases to author visits to political, uh...discussions, it's all right there, simple and concise for my overloaded brain to digest.
A special benefit is connecting with old friends and classmates with the Facebook search tool. I've re-friended people I haven't seen for over 4 decades! What an eye-opening experience.
Do I look that old??
For my school friends reading this: I'm not talking about you! Just all those other classmates of ours. (ahem)
I've also joined family groups and discovered 2nd, 3rd, 10th cousins! Relatives I never knew existed are uncovered with the click of a mouse.
Social networking at its best. But, let me be clear. I will not join FARMVILLE. Not NOW, not EVER!
What are your favorite social networking sights? Has it been a good experience for you, or a bad one? Facebook addicts want to know.
On another subject, if you're addicted to ebooks, check out "Cynthia's Attic" series on Kindle!
