And I owe it all to Facebook.
Yes, after Eric McCool created a Season of Concern fan page on Facebook and then created an "event" to help us secure volunteers for tomorrow's mailing, I understood why people like Facebook. How helpful it can be to promote events or an organization's needs.
Now, I'm not in love with it yet, but I am getting there. I changed my profile picture on Facebook yesterday. And I even wrote a status message.
This of course means that, if you love Facebook, you should be frightened and if you dislike Facebook, you should be elated.
Because by the time I fully become a part of a social movement or trend, that trend's days are numbered.
I have a long history of this - - from 8-track tapes to Betamax, from parachute pants to Z Cavaricci's...
Headbands... Leg warmers... Hell, I didn't even listen to Olivia Newton-John with any regularity until she released Twist of Fate for God's sake...
I don't follow fads, I finish them.
That said, how much will you pay me to join Twitter?
