I signed onto Facebook a couple of months ago, at the bequest of an amiga. I have to say I was pretty dubious – another social networking site for me to not like very much. It was so hyped up as well, which isn’t usually, in my experience, a good thing. And for a couple of months it just kinda sat there, gathering dust. Not interesting enough to use, but enough potential for me to keep it bookmarked.
I have a Last.fm app, a divShare app and a Skype app – now I just need someone to make me a Gmail app! I can see Facebook growing into something seriously massive. There are flaws – some apps just don’t work properly. Too many are pointless. And though there is the ability to find classmates, ala Friends Reunited, it’s poorly organised and under used – I’ve only seen one or two people I know listed. But it is all free.
Give it a go. And keep with it – even if you don’t like it at first it might grow on you too. You’ll have at least one ‘Friend’ to start with – add me.
