Social Media: Flash From the Past

I have been a Facebook user for some time now, and every time I hit ACCEPT INVITE my entire life flashes before my eyes. Mostly, it’s when people from high school or college want to reconnect. I am suddenly bombarded with a flood of memories. Some , I’ll admit, are filled with gaps. It’s the same experience I get when using my cell phone in a bad reception area. “Can you remember me now?” I never imagined a time when people who passed me in the hall or sat next to me in class would be my “FRIEND” decades later. I had been living my life believing that my circle of friends was about the size of a hula hoop. But today, thanks to the fine folks at Facebook, the circumference of my circle can literally circle the globe!
