One reason I love Facebook: it’s a friend catalogue.
It’s fascinating to see how far connections go, or how many friends you get from a new job or hobby. This evening, I was perusing an old coworker’s profile and I noticed we have 20 mutual friends. That’s at least 20 people from that old job. From an old colleague’s profile, I learned that being on staff at the Union introduced me to at least 41 more people. I like being able to know that. Appeals to my obsessive-compulsive tendencies.
