Why I’m Going Back on Facebook (Again!)

Okay, this is the thing. There are people I care about who I never, or all too rarely, see. We are living parallel lives in disparate places. And those lives are zipping by at breakneck speed. Having the ability to send a birthday greeting or smile at a photo, or celebrate an event or milestone with a friend has value.

That is not to say that my overall feelings about Facebook have changed. There was a post on Facebook during the holidays showing a dog standing over a shredded Elf on the Shelf. The dog destroyed the elf because he thought it was “creepy.” I feel like that dog. There are aspects about Facebook that I still find somewhat creepy, but I’ve decided to focus on the good.

In an ideal world, I would remember all of the birthdays and anniversaries. I would stay in touch without the need for social media. But that isn’t reality. So I’m going to give it another try.
