So I joined Facebook finally. For the same reason I hooked up with LinkedIn, I guess, but on the social side, rather than the business side. And also so that I could see pictures of my friends' kids, since that seems to be one 'safe' place people put up those kinds of things. And I keep running across people with hundreds and hundreds of friends.

Maybe I'm just a cranky old introvert, but that sounds exhausting.

Oh, it IS exhausting! I didn't have many fb "friends" for ages, as it wasn't something that I really did much. Then, I went through a phase for a couple of weeks where I friended people I knew. Then, people you just kinda knew in HS friend you, but they don't always even say "hi." You are suddenly "friends," but you still haven't spoken in over 15 years. The whole thing is bizarre but an interesting social experiment.
