Why I love the FB

I think it is quite possible that Facebook is the greatest invention EVER. Or, at least the greatest way to keep in touch with people. Let's face it, we all know lots of people. Some that we would love to keep in touch with more, some that we would like to get to know better and some that we would just rather not keep in touch with. Facebook allows you to do all of that and even better, you know what most of those people have done in the last few hours!

Of course THE FB (which is what I refer to it as) can be a supreme waste of time as well, but hey, when you are nursing and staring at your computer, it makes the time move a little faster. Here are the top 10 reasons I love THE FB.

10. I can catch up with my friends that don't have blogs.
9. I can see pictures of my friends that don't have blogs.
8. I can ask a question like, "Has any one's child had torticollis?" and get some answers, because I am pretty sure Kaylin has it. (Now would be the time to answer that question, thank you.)
7. I can interface my blog and tweets all on facebook, and that is a beautiful thing.
6. I can see what people are up to without them KNOWING that I am seeing what they are up to. . . unlike a blog, where STATCOUNTER can tell you all things.
5. You can be friends with ANYONE, because EVERYONE wants lots of friends.
4. You can look at all those guys that you used to be crazy over in high school and see that they aren't all that anymore. . . and on top of that, they have no hair.
3. They can see that I might not still be all that, but at least I have HAIR.
2. You can "unfriend" someone if they are stalker-ish, or driving you crazy
1. You can find out important things like whether or not Adam Lambert is Gay, and I am here to tell you that I found someone on the FB who knows him and they said, YES, HE IS GAY! (If you couldn't figure that out on your own!)

Oh, and one more thing you can do on the FB is figure out how small the world really is. Or, find out how all of your friends know each other! I had one "blogger" that I have never met in person who was "friends" with one of my neighbors! I asked how they were friends and they grew up together!! WEIRD!

You can also keep in touch with those people who are just horrible about keeping in touch!!


Wanna be friends? Leave your name and I will friend you!

I'm with you....LOVE IT! And it is an awesome way to keep yourself entertained while nursing. Too bad my baby is about done. Now I'll have to find another excuse to sit on the computer.

My little Sylvie had Torticollis.... I can tell you all about my experience. 5 months of physical therapy starting when she was 6 weeks old and I laid her to sleep on her tummy... the best thing to help their neck and head shape!! (But the doctors will all tell you that is a no-no) E-mail me if you have questions.

I'm still undecided. I have an account but if I am going to take time to be on the computer I would rather blog. Plus I have had three random strangers try to friend me. I ignored them of course but still kinda creepy.

I'm still on the FB fence. Can't decide quite how to use it and feel that my blog would be neglected (even more) if I were to make the switch.

My niece had tortocollis (sp?) and had to wear a neck brace for a good part of the first year of her life. She's all better now. Good luck!

We have a niece who had torticollis, and my Sis in law said the faster you can get it treated the better. She mentioned that she thought Katie had it, but I never got it checked out. Maybe I'll mention it at her next visit! I really haven't noticed anything unusual though.

I love FB! Although I agree that at times, it can be a major waste of time (just ask my husband his opinion, lol).

My son had torticollis. The doctor first noticed around a month, and he started p.t. at 6 weeks. After 2 months, he was as good as new. I have to say though, that I was crazy obsessed with doing all the exercises they gave us to do with him, and he really took to tummy time on the exercise ball. We'd just roll him from side to side and from front to back on that ball, (and bounce it juist a little once and a while) all the time, and he loved it. That's be my biggest suggestion...use the ball (and p.t. if needed, of course), but if you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

I started FB a couple of months ago to join my high school graduating class group. I'm trying to figure it out, but I will probably love it as I understand it more.

P.S. I just requested you as a friend

Facebook. I can't keep up with it. The blog is enough work.

Bridget said...

I love Facebook too. Its a time suck though which I really don't need. But it is nice.
