Join The Revolution Pt. 2

Colleen, you're absolutely right. UST students spend way too much time on Facebook.

To do a bit of research on my own, I decided to sign up for Facebook just to see what it was. Don't worry, I'm not going to the dark side, I just wasn't that impressed. Actually, I have no idea why you'd be on there as a student, but myself being an alumni of UST, it is a bit useful. There's some people with all their contact info on there that I haven't seen or heard from since graduation. So contacting them is a bit easier now that I have that method of finding their info.

But to prove how much time current students spend on Facebook, two people that I haven't seen for at least six months put me on their friends list. Just the fact that within six hours of me signing up two people had noticed I was on the system is scary. I can see myself using it from time to time to recconect with friends, but actually hanging out on there? You've got to be kidding. If they want me to hang out on there, the website design has to be at least as cool as my blog because I just put my blog look together in an hour or two!

Maybe I should make a little "no facebook" icon that we can put on the corner of our pages or something. That would be kinda cool.



Don't let Facebook suck you in... at some schools it's called StalkerNet. :P Our force is growing, however...
