I do have a Facebook account - initially designed as a way to stay in touch with our exchange student after she returned home. I've now found lots of connections - from high school friends to colleagues - and lots of young people I know as well. While I initially didn't think about it as a connection to the social scene, it's been fun to see how there are mutual friends, how people use it to stay in touch and to share photos, etc. I actually see it as a fun way to be connected through work with 4-H members - able to be in touch about things, comment on their lives and accomplishments and share messages. I realize they often check this more than email! I have also tried LinkedIn and will be interested to see how that works as well with colleagues and what ways that can be used. I do have a few Facebook friends who have told me to "get with it" and use it more - keeping it updated and telling what I'm up to. I guess I need to accept the reality of keeping in touch can also happen in this way as well, not just an email or a snail mail letter!
