Social Evolution

Monday, February 2, 2009

So I cracked under the peer pressure and joined Facebook.

My family (mostly my wife) have been bugging me for several months to get on Facebook. Even my mother mentioned yesterday that of all the first cousins in my family, my brother and I are the only ones Not on Facebook.

I am not a social creature by nature, I much prefer to stay in my own little Geek world, and occasionally poke my head out of my shell for close friends and family. But becoming more extroverted (or pretending to be more extroverted) is something I have worked on over many years, and so I finally decided the Social Web was the next step. Who'd have thought that something as geeky and technical as the Internet would actually encourage people to interact socially.

I guess there's just something appealing in being able to socialize without actually being around people.
