Social Networking

The current buzz is social networking. I have bought into two forms only, for the time being:

Facebook = www.facebook.com/rick.boyne

Twitter = www.twitter.com/rboyne

As of June 18, 2009, I have only 35 followers on Twitter (I'm new) and 614 Friends on Facebook.

I really like Facebook. (My friend, Steve Heartsill said, today, that I was addicted. Hmmmm) FB has given me the opportunity to get in touch with folks that I went to elementary school with! I have even "met" a few new "friends" through Facebook.

Twitter is a little more esoteric. I have set it up so that my Twitter update automatically update my Facebook status. I personally don't find Twitter to be as useful as FB, but I'm working on it.

So, here is your invitation to be my "Facebook Friend" or to "Follow ME" on Twitter. If I've never met you before, just mention that you saw my invitation on my blog.

I do facebook, probably too much... like you.
I don't and don't plan to do Twitter. I really don't know much about it, other than now I know too much about the lives of everyone:
"going to pick the kids up at soccer"
"just had the best chocolate chip pancakes at IHOP"
"blah"
"don't you hate it when the roll of toilet paper runs out while you are in a public stall"
Seriously, I don't need to know all of this from everyone I know.
