Girls Write Out
Sunday, March 27, 2011

Remember a few short years ago before anyone knew what the term "Social Networking" meant? I'm shocked by how quickly things have changed. Facebook has shriveled the world down to the size of a fifteen inch monitor.

I'm amazed by how easy it is to keep in touch with my out-of-town family. By how handy it is to deliver birthdays and anniversaries wishes. By how simple it is to get reacquainted with old friends. Or check in on my teenagers' thoughts--even if they are sitting right across the room.

I've heard amazing stories of people finding long lost parents and children or old lovers reuniting. I love Facebook for all these reasons, but my favorite use of this great social tool? Connecting with people who were previously very difficult to find--my readers! I can speak directly to them and they feel free to chat with me. Facebook has truly revolutionized my world.

What's your favorite thing about Facebook? How has it changed your world?

Oh, and while I'm on the subject, I'll be giving away lots of copies of "A Cowboy's Touch" during the month of April at The Readers Circle! Just join the group to be eligible.

I do love connecting with my dear friends on a quick facebook note when I'm online or talking with my friends who live afar. I've gotten to meet and see some of my readers. They have come to a few of my book signings and it's been really nice.

Facebook for me has been a way to connect with our church family during the week. We use it to encourage and pray for one another.

Also, I love being able to keep in touch with some of my long-time friends. I have one friend who moved to China and with facebook we can connect with pictures and chat and still keep a really close relationship that we wouldn't normally have due to distance.

Just like everything, it can be used for negative or positive. It's a tool in your hand, and what you choose to do with it makes it that way.

Good post!

I hope you enjoy the book, Jel!

Sheri, you're so right. I know people have used facebook in ways that have hurt themselves and others. You're right about it being a tool and we need to use it responsibly.

I like being able to keep in touch with my friends and students in Turkey. What I don't like is how much time I can waste on Facebook doing nothing!

It's made our world so small. I found my biological father on there recently. I haven't had the nerve to send him a message yet, but before Facebook I only had a name. :0/

It's a great resource, but yes, can be a bit of a time stealer. :)

Yes, Pam, you can sure lose hours if you're not careful.

Wow, Sabrina, that's so cool!
