Wondering how many of my Baby Boomer and retired friends are using Facebook for social networking . . .

Amen, to that!!!
I just discovered meetup. It’s great!!! Keeps you busy!!!
I do, I do. Its how I keep tabs on my extended family. Plus I reconnected with high school friends and I’m actually dating one. Its fun, you should try it.
It’s where I get to see pictures of the Grandkids. They post regularly. I’ve also heard from past friends I’ve been out of touch with.
I spend as much time on facebook socializing as I do on here. Facebook is my place for laughing, being silly and making family, friends, classmates and acquaintances of varied kinds laugh. In return they do the same for me. I thank God for the day a friend of mine insisted I check Facebook out, because I’d miss it horribly now – just as I would this website now that I’ve gotten to know so many women here.
I imagine a lot. I have reconnected with friends (and my favorite HS teacher) as far back as elementary school, and have actually met up with some of them in person. I keep in touch with former coworkers and neighbors, and keep track of my daughter, nieces, nephews and cousins, also. More people are joining. So people are still popping up that weren’t there before. Also have joined my school groups – so I find out about get-togethers in my home town also.
meetup.com is AMAZING for social networking! They are all over the U.S. with TONS of activities!
I have reconnected with some friends on FB, but honestly I use it more for getting news, interesting articles from Time and Life magazines, great recipes, and my favorite country music singers.
I have reconnected with many of my long lost high school and college friends. We seem to ‘catch up” and not really maintain ongoing dialogue as our lives are so different, but it is nice to reconnect , remember, and see how they turned out. Have heard of the deaths of a few too as a result. very bittersweet when that happens.
