OK, now I joined this thing.

Unfortunately I have no photo anywhere in this computer that I am aware of which is probably just as well. It would only scare everyone away.

An easy way we could all find each other on Facebook is to join the Group: Cruisemates - once you join you are listed as a member. Then it is easier to identify you - be it by name or picture, and then it is just a simple click to request to add someone as a friend. I haven't checked the group in a few days, I will go there today and see if there are new members, then request "add as friend".

Just a thought to maybe find each other easier.

Another way is if you are friends with a cruisemate you can suggest to the rest of us who haven't found that person yet, that they might want to add them as friend.

HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY TO FACEBOOK!!

An article from CNN.COM

And Congrats to FaceBook Creator Mark Zuckerberg for becoming the youngest Billionaire.


Quote:
-- A Web site started by a student as a way of staying in touch with friends celebrated its fifth birthday Wednesday as a billion-dollar business and a global phenomenon.


Around 15 million users update their statuses on Facebook daily.

Mark Zuckerberg was 19 when he launched Facebook from a Harvard dorm in 2004. Within 24 hours, more than 1,000 of his Harvard classmates had signed up for the social-networking site and one month later half of those on campus had a profile.

Five years on, the Web site claims more than 150 million users worldwide while Zuckerberg, now 24, was named the youngest billionaire on the planet -- with an estimated fortune of $1.5 billion -- last year by Forbes magazine.

Writing in Time on Zuckerberg's inclusion in the magazine's 2008 list of the most influential 100 people in the world, Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist, said Zuckerberg had created "a social network that not only reflects your life but maybe expands it."

According to Facebook figures, around 15 million users update their statuses daily. More than 850 million photos are added to the site each month while the average user has 120 friends.

Meanwhile, Web sites such as Facebook were widely credited with helping Barack Obama secure victory in last year's U.S. presidential election by helping him connect via the Internet with younger, previously disengaged voters.

I have resisted all these new little groups for fear basically of not knowing what I'm doing , but a friend of mine convinced me to join, so I did so last week. I am still figuring it all out and getting used to it somewhat. I have found friends from high school, so that has been fun to reconnect.

My sister made me do it. All my college friends are on it. Now I have been made a memeber of the Cruisemates on FB too. Too many sites to keep track of.

I'm with Dave "Too many sites to keep track of," but I am having fun with it the more I get comfortable on it.
