Facebook Makes Old Friends Become New Again

This post is dedicated to my love for Facebook right now. I have been all over the social media circuit, Myspace, Twitter, Ning Groups and most recently Facebook. Mainly to connect with folks who are entrepreneurs, craft makers or just to keep in contact with family.

One day out of the blue sky, I went on a search to see if any of my classmates from High School had Facebook pages. Being that it has only been a couple of years since I was in High School (smile), I could not remember any of the names of people I went to school with the exception of one person. That person will remain anonymous as I am sure they do not want to be published on my blog. When I did a search on that individual, sure enough they had a page and so did some 30 to 40 other people that went to my school with me.

Needless to say, November and December has been a time of getting reacquainted with my classmates from Edward R. Murrow HS class of 19xx (I will keep the year a secret folks, don't want to give away how young we are :) Although I am still upset that I missed the September 2008 reunion. But I am looking forward to the upcoming reunions.

Everyone seems to have aged or shall I say matured gracefully. We have exchanged pictures and fond memories of when we were in school. Most of us have agreed that our best school years were in High School. After that real life set in.

So this blog post is dedicated to all the old friends who have become my "New" friends due to Facebook. There is no greater time than the present to reach out and share a little love to someone you have not seen in awhile. They may really need it and you would be blessed by it.

What about you? Have you gotten in contact with an old friend through a social media group or otherwise? Have you thought about getting in contact with folks you have not spoken with in 5, 10, 20 even 30 years?

I have mostly made new friends on my social networking sites. However, I did just join Facebook and haven't really given it the time I need to. I've just been so busy with everything else.
Maybe during the Christmas vacation I'll have more time to catch up.

It does take time to get on all those circuits. But I would pick just a few and have fun with. I have had to scale back on some of the sites have been on because it ends up being more work than fun. Remember to have fun this Christmas. :)
