Facebook - my mind still boogles at how quickly this has taken off. What started out as a college age community has exploded since they opened up to everyone and anyone. A lot of high schoolers migrated over as it's more sophisticated than MySpace when it comes to social interactions. But more significantly there is a slow climb in the age bracket of the users as the meme spreads up the ladder. When I joined I was by far the oldest person in my old high schools group. Now I'm the average age as more and more old schoolmates come into the mix.
I'm sure this is not a rare instance but Facebook has revealed at least one connection between my old and current social circles that I would never have been aware of otherwise. More interestingly I'm noticing how it's impacted people's real world interactions. A friend from high school recently had a Jack and Jill. I'd guess at least 15% of the people who went would never even have known about it were it not for Facebook.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, I see people cringing as people they didn't care for in high school are suddenly making friend requests now. I thought I made it pretty obvious back then what I thought of a few people so why are they making me "reject" them now. Or I've seen others experience grown adults continue the same torment from public school days into the modern schoolyard of Facebook.
Will be interesting to see how long Facebook lasts. It's like what Classmates.com always wanted to be except it's free and doesn't annoy the heck out of us with bad ad banners everywhere.
Anyone have any good Facebook stories to share?
