I feel like a luddite to admit this – but I’ve only just registered on Facebook today!
Despite the various invitations from friends – Gavin’s even thrown a photo of me from Spain in there – I’ve resisted because: I’m a working mother of 2 toddlers – I don’t even have enough time to sort through my inbox or watch the daily news, I simply cannot afford to be addicted to Facebook!
Until my husband comes home one day to tell me he’s now on facebook – and has had numerous pokes (mostly from his ex-girlfriends).
I wonder if many happily married/busy/time-poor enterprise architect sorts like me would join in Facebook for similar reasons. Will college students (probably with more spare time for fun social networking than me) eventually enter the workforce – and succumb to the traditional way of email, or will the next generation of workforce bring in the new way of social interaction to the workplace to revolutionise the way we collaborate and communicate?
Anyway, at least now I’m not missing out on cool parties like this one for GeekGirls in Sydney.
