The Facebook Party
I went to a party where people who had never met knew each other from Facebook. They talked like they were old friends. Everyone was talking to everyone and it was all about Facebook. Even people who were not friends on Facebook had mutual friends on Facebook and they pulled out their smart phones and i-pads and went on line to become friends.
A Japanese woman approached me and asked for my name. I told her and she entered this information in a Facebook search engine and came up with 1,438 John Bennetts. Then she asked me if I lived in Ellensburg and I said yes which allowed her to narrow her search. There were no John Bennetts on Facebook who lived in Ellensburg, and she frowned and walked away.
I thanked the party’s host for his hospitality and slipped out the back door.
