Faceless Book Makes It Tough To Find Friends

facelessbook1
Every now and then I get a wild hair and spend a few minutes trying drum up some old friends, acquaintances, business associates, and family members on Facebook. It’s fun to catch up with the past and keep in touch with those I might never see again. Some of them make it difficult, though.

I am not one to start asking people to be my friend if I’m not sure I have the right person. Therefore, I can’t (or rather, won’t) ask you to be my friend if:

1. You don’t upload a picture of yourself.

2. You don’t put your city or affiliation in.

3. You go by a different name. I do understand this, though. Marriage, divorce, professional reasons, witness protection, etc. Maybe “Wellington”, the bank president, doesn’t want to be known as “Stinky” anymore.

What’s the point of using the application if nobody can find you? You can’t bury yourself in anonymity if you expect people to be your online friend, especially if you have a common name. You hear me, Joe Smith?

On Monday, the next set of videos in the Sledzik-Curran Social Media Project….Kevin Dugan.
