Is it really THAT long?

A few days ago I joined Facebook for the same reason I experimented with twitter and found it severely wanting. However facebook has a bit more scope and I have enlisted D1 as a 'friend'. I also discovered their search engine and thus was able to find their chat groups which don't have any sort of tag that can be easily found. In fact, as far as I can see, there is no way of finding one's way to their groups except by putting "groups" into the search facility.

I searched out and found some groups connected with my old school and joined the most official-looking one of them and posted asking for any others from the Class of 19**. so far there has been no response and I suspect that many of my generation are not all that computer literate and would shun Facebook anyway. Or they have had the same reaction as I have had, which is "OMG - did I leave school THAT long ago." Scary stuff ...

  1. know that feeling. I never went to a class reunion. I was the shy quiet one. No one would have remembered me. :-)
