Facebook Reaches Out and Touches
Back in April, I wrote a post called, “Good Chat”. It talked about the pros and cons of technology. Well, today, I felt like my friend in “Good Chat”. My phone was vibrating all day – and it was awesome!
There are times when I “mentally check” out of Facebook. I think it happens to all of us. There is just too much going on.
But, there is one day a year that Facebook never lets me down. In the end, it is my friends who are brightening my day because they are taking the time to send me a birthday wish by writing on my wall.
I was getting my hair done, this morning, and my phone kept vibrating. The owner of the hair salon came over and said that nobody cares when it’s his birthday!
Then, I treated myself to a manicure/pedicure. I was the only one in the whole place. It was as if I had bought the place out. The massage chair was kneading my back and my feet and toes were getting needed attention. Throughout the session, my phone kept vibrating!
It’s such a treat to see these greetings cascade down my wall! It’s like getting a hug the whole day. I make sure that I acknowledge each post, opening up the door to conversation.
Today, the people who have reached out to me have amazed me. I have not heard from some of them for a long time and while some would say that is sad, I think it also cool because it gives us a chance to reconnect.
And my non-Facebook friends have kept my phone ringing today, too, with a symphony of texts. It certainly makes one feel special, even if it is just for one day. Thank you, my friends!
