Facebook and me – a beginning and an uncertain future

Saturday, October 20th, 2007

I’ve been hearing about this phenomenon called Facebook, and my kids are into it, so I decided to check it out. Upon creating an account, I was prompted by the system to join the Saskatoon network. Saskatoon? That’s 150 km away from Prince Albert. Anyway, apparently there isn’t a P.A. network, so I joined the Saskatoon network.

Once safely ensconced in Facebook, I tried typing “Prince Albert” into a search box, and was offered the opportunity to join a group (I don’t remember the term used) interested in Carlton High School, St. Mary’s High School, Ecole Valoies High School, etc. I didn’t see any groups for middle-aged guys interested in family, church and hunting, so I decided to log off.

That was a couple of days ago. I guess I should sign back on and try to find out what it means to “poke” someone on Facebook.
