Old, Me?

David, who is nine years my senior, recently accused me of being old because I use Friendster, which is blase, rather than Facebook, which is what all the cool kids are using now. My apologies for not keeping up with the times. According to my Friendster profile, I joined in July 2003, way before Facebook even existed. And it is what all my (23) friends use, which is the whole point! I guess that is the point, anyway. I've never been quite sure what Friendster is good for, though the birthday reminders have been quite handy. Sometimes it creeps me out, though. I recently approved a new friend, someone I went to high school with, which means that I am now second-degree friends with my most hated high school ex-boyfriend!

But David told me that I could register on Facebook as his fiancee, so I went ahead and did that. The problem is that you have to register as part of a network, and the three options are high school, college, or work. What about grad school? And there doesn't even seem to be a network for Pomona College! Maybe David is right: I am too old for Facebook.

Uh, nobody uses Friendster anymore. And yeah, you can register as a grad student at a college on Facebook, but Facebook is lame and for the kiddies. Get on MySpace like everyone else!

I thought MySpace was for the kiddies! I guess I really am behind the times...

If you want social software for really old people try linkedin.com. I've been having more fun with it than I should...but I am old.
