This post is brought to you by the NaBloPoMo July prompts from BlogHer. This month, I am writing about connections.
Today’s Prompt: Mark Zuckerberg has said about his site: “The thing that we are trying to do at Facebook is just help people connect and communicate more efficiently.” Do you think he succeeded?
Facebook, admittedly, has brought me a heck of a lot of drama. But, above all that, it has connected me in so many ways. I have to agree that the site met the goal to connect others.
In 2008, Facebook kept my parents close to Arianna’s growth during our two months apart. They were able to instantly see photos and comment on her changes.
Friends “from the past” have been able to re-connect with us.
This here blog has been able to connect with readers on Facebook.
We were able to stay in touch with Nurin while she was in Morocco.
I have been able to connect with other bloggers as we prepare for BlogHer (this week!).
Katie, Rachel, and I were able to promote tonight’s Family Friendly Tweetup.
Moving past all of the drama, I have to say I am glad to hit the “blue F” on my phone every once in awhile and see that red circle with a number on it, letting me know someone connected with me, caring about my content. Thank you, Facebook, for your ways of keeping us together in this techie world.
PS, are you connected with us on Facebook yet? If not, perhaps it is time to give us a Like!
