I love Facebook! It's a place where I can connect with friends and family from all over the world.
Where else can you go on your birthday morning and find so many birthday greetings? :)
Living in Phoenix, I don't get to see many of my cousins. But all I have to do is check out their Facebook profile and I can see the latest photos.
These are my California cousins. Rod is pictured with his son Jake. My Uncle Bob is in the middle and my cousin Russ is pictured with his son.
Of course, their daughters had to join their brothers in a photo op too.
And I laughed so hard when I saw this photo. My cousin's son is the one on the right ...priceless!
Then there are those long lost family photos I get to see. Kristin and Katie are in this one at a birthday party. Katie is the little girl with the pony tails and Kristin is on her left. The girls are all grown up now and I missed ever seeing this photo until Facebook.
I also get to join Facebook groups. My parents grew up in Brooklyn, New York. I joined a Facebook group of people who attended the same church as my parents and grandparents so I got to see old photos.
This picture was taken back in the 1930's. My dad is the birthday boy in the center. All of the other children were identified on Facebook. How cool is that?
I've many more reasons for loving Facebook. But this is just a start. Keeping in touch with family, friends and blogging friends has been a wonderful adventure for me. I'm getting very good at Google Translate so I can converse with my Norwegian relatives. And I am getting reacquainted with many of my Lindenhurst High School classmates. With a reunion coming up this summer, it makes it more fun to 'talk' ahead of time.
So, if you've hesitated getting on board I'd say go for it. How about you? Are you on Facebook?
