Since I’ve been on Facebook, I’ve been able to reestablish contact with geographically distant relatives and old friends. I have several nieces and nephews in my friend list along with a few cousins, my immediate family here in Dayton, and an aunt. Yesterday was a productive day for reconnecting with friends and cousins. The most surprising was getting a friend request from one of Tina’s cousins who is currently working in Qatar.
Connecting with friends and family is my primary reason for belonging to a social networking site like Facebook. I don’t have any need or desire to accumulate a lengthy list of people with whom I have no relationship or that I’m never even likely to meet. I’ll take quality over quantity any day.
