I always get friend requests on Facebook – friends of friends, people who just take up on Facebook’s system generated friend suggestions, people who think I look familiar, few from actual friends. I swear by Facebook as a great way to connect with old friends and stay in touch with the existing ones especially when they don’t live closeby. I met some of my long lost friends and others whoremember me from my 5 year old days. We all shared the warmth of a family drama moments on each others’ walls. My real surprise came when my grandfather’s friend showed up on suggestions list because he just friended my dad on Facebook. But I’m always surprised at the number of people that are taking to social sites to stay connected. Just how many is so many, I wonder!
