I am a huge fan of facebook. I have to admit, i didnt want to have one for the longest time but finally set one up in the middle of work one day last summer. Now that i am in college, you sort of have to have a facebook account. I mean, it helps me keep in touch with my friends all over the country/world over my long ass break (that is over. I am so glad to be going back to school!) and it helps me just know the on goings of my college better even if i dont care at all.
Also about friending people here... I dont think that is happening.
