Why I Love Facebook

Some cool things have happened this week on Facebook and I just had to share with you why I am now a "Facebook Fanatic!" 

For one, so many of my college friends are on there that I haven't see in over 10 years.  I would estimate that I've gotten back in touch with over 50 friends that I had in college.  The coolest part is that tomorrow, the "6th Floor Girls" from my freshman year are all having a reunion, all because we got back in touch on Facebook!

Secondly, Facebook has helped me to feel closer to people!    There are some women on there who I met at MOPS or at church, who I normally don't have very much contact with,  but now that we "see" each other on Facebook regularly, we know what is going on in each others' lives.  When we do run into each other, we greet each other like we are good friends, because it has helped us to get to know one another better.  

Third, it is amazing what a small world this is.  There is a girl I used to babysit who requested me as a friend.  The last time I saw her, she was about 10 years old.  I just found out that she has been going to a Bible study in my sister's dorm room for the past few weeks, led by my sister's roommate!!   They have never met each other but will soon be meeting thanks to Facebook!

I also just love seeing everyone's pictures - even though I haven't been in touch with some people for 10 years or so, I am now getting to catch up on their lives, see their families, and see how they've grown and changed.  It is so great.

So, that's enough for now... I just had to rave about it this week since I'm so excited about my reunion tomorrow, and it's all thanks to Facebook!


  1. Have fun tomorrow! I know I have been blessed by the re-connections made on FB!

  2. I completely agree! I love being more in tune with the everyday lives of special friends like you!!

  3. I wish I had time to do something with my face book account! :(
    I'm glad you've been able to reconnect with some many of your old friends though, that's awesome to hear! :)

    (I love all the pics too btw.. maybe once the baby gets here I'll be able to post some stuff!)
