Facebook

My first and true love is LiveJournal. This is my online home, and I love that I’m surrounded by so many fabulous friends. But everyone seems to be partying on Facebook lately, and I hate feeling like I’m missing out. So…(gulp) I’ve created a Facebook account.

 

I’d love to hear from folks I used to know, and to reconnect with far-flung relatives. Plus, I think it’d be fun to make new friends and contacts.  And I’d like very much to (re)connect with LJ friends who’ve drifted over there.

 

Truth is, I’m feeling awkward and lonely. So, um, will you grab my hand and show me around the playground? I’m the little girl who’s lingering near the cyclone fence. My nametag says Melodye (Suva) Shore.

  1. I swear to G-d.
    I SWEAR to G-d.
    I swear.
    I was thinking about asking you (again) this morning if you wanted to make a Facebook page.
    But I didn’t want you to get mad at me.
    You know, call me a nudge.

    I love LiveJournal, too. It give me space to write what I want, when I want.

    I won’t let go. I can’t go.

    But I will be happy to take your hand on Facebook and ask you to sit with me at lunch so we can talk about our lives and our fears and what boys we think are cute and what do we want to be when we grow up.

    (I’m still waiting to grow up so there’s plenty time for your suggestions and advice.)

    -Pamela, happy

      Thanks for dropping by–and for commenting! I love that LJ gives me room to spread out my thoughts, and to linger over other people’s ideas. But Facebook will be fun, too, I’m sure of it. πŸ™‚

  2. Facebook is such a different interface than LJ or Dreamwidth it creates a different kind of community. I won’t give up LJ or Dreamwidth, because my online families were such a source of healing for me–and you all know me in a way my real life friends never will. But it’s fun to have the means to interact with people in a more lighthearted manner, which I feel is what FB does.

    • That’s how I see things, too!!! I’ll probably paddle in the shallow waters for a while, but it’s nice that so many people have offered to share their floaties with me. πŸ™‚

  3. I’ll look for you. Still learning the ropes myself, but I really only use it for mini-blogging. The applications are cute, but take a lot of time, so I’ve started ignoring them.

  4. I’m still resisting the siren call of Facebook – I worry it will be too much of a timesuck. I hope you’ll report back on your adventures there and let me know if the waters are safe (and if it really IS a giant timesuck).

  5. I am on facebook, sort of. I am SILVERFRECKLES! I have 1 friend (TammiSauer) but I never remember to check over there and don’t know why I am there at all.

  6. Awwwww…. I’ll show you around the playground, Melodye! I’m glad you’re taking that plunge!!! πŸ™‚ When I get home, I’ll take a peek for you or you can find me at Kevin Saito. πŸ™‚

  7. YAY!! Glad to hear that you’ve taken the Facebook plunge. The water isn’t deep and it’s a fun place to dabble your toes.

    LiveJournal will always be my first love and I’ll never give it up, even though I’ve spread my wings and can also be found on MySpace, Blogger, JacketFlap, Facebook and Twitter…not to mention the Blueboards, NESCBWI, and Linkedin.

    Welcome aboard!! I would be honored to take your hand and show you around Facebook. You’ll find that most of the people you know from LJ are on here.

    • I’m soaked from head to toe–the water’s warm, but wow, there’s tons of people in the pool! Thanks for wading into the shallows with me. I’m sure I’ll get used to it before long, but I’m having fun in the meantime. πŸ™‚

  8. Oh wow, Melodye…I’m going to wait and see how you like it. Daughter has been urging me to dive into FB, but I didn’t much think about it. I just am a little worried about more distractions. :-O

    • I’m wondering if it’s like candy–a fun treat, best enjoyed in small quantities. I know for sure that I need to exert discipline to keep it from turning into a writing distraction. Still, t’s nice to reconnect (at least in a broad sense) with LJ friends we haven’t seen for a while.

      No worries, though…LJ is the meat-and-potatoes (tofu and veggies?) of my online existence. πŸ™‚

    • Much better, I think. I don’t think I can keep up with all the FB posts, and I know for sure that it’s a writing distraction. But! Eye candy! And it’s nice to see old friends who’ve drifted away from LJ, if only for short hellos.
