Raise your hand if you’ve heard of “Social Networking” before. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Sorry, couldn’t resist it!
How about MySpace or Facebook?
I thought those would ring a bell – I’d heard of MySpace, but didn’t realize it was a “social network” until recently. Did you know there are about a million gazillion social networks in cyberspace? Check this out: Wikipedia list of social networks. Amazing, isn’t it? And that doesn’t even include Digg, StumbleUpon, Hubs, etc. It’s crazy out there!
Maybe I’m crazy too – I’ve recently dipped a toe into the huge social networking pond. I was hoping to connect with old friends and make new ones, but haven’t had much luck yet. Either my old friends are too
old busy to get into social networking, or maybe I haven’t found where they all hang out. Maybe they’re all hiding from me so I won’t find them. Some friends!
Anyway, I’ve got profiles set up in a couple of places, if you’re in the same places stop by and add me as a friend! Since my old friends aren’t around I’ll just forget them and make new friends. They’re probably mad that I called them old, but who needs them – I have you, right? Ummm, unless you are one of my old friends, then I didn’t mean you; I meant those other guys. Really, I’ve always liked you, wanna be best friends forever?
Here’s my networks so far, I’ll LYK that means “Let You Know” if I join anywhere else so you can look for me there too:
StumbleUpon: http://amysuen.stumbleupon.com/ I was addicted to StumbleUpon, it’s like playing the slots, Not that I’ve ever been to a casino, but it’s what I’d imagine playing the slots would be like. You click the Stumble button and a website pops up… is it a good one or a bomb? The fun is seeing what comes up each time. Try it, you’ll like it!
MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/amysuen Admittedly pathetic so far. I just recently joined and haven’t taken time to personalize everything yet. But it’ll get there eventually, I swear! I think it’ll be fun once I figure out how everything works and I have a bunch of friends to “play” with.
Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1044494416 This is relatively new too, but I’ve already found some friends and joined a couple of groups. I’d like to play more games but it bugs me that I have to invite all my friends in order to play. I’m just stubborn enough not to do it. Pop in anyway and feel free to invite me when you play games; I love seeing all the fun games and stuff there.
So there you have it – I’m hip, cool, groovy, phat, happenin’… and hoping College Boy isn’t falling off his chair laughing as he reads this! Whatever you want to call it, I’m not totally out of touch yet. Stop by my profiles and be my friend. Pretty please?
