M has an assignment for Language Arts to create a (fake) Facebook/MySpace type page for one of the characters in the book he read for summer reading. He seems to be enjoying this assignment more than a traditional type book report.
The assignment also seems to have gotten the kids talking about Facebook pages and who is on there. Leading, of course, to M wanting to get onto Facebook. D and I discussed it and decided that he could make a page, with certain restrictions, namely, he had to friend us and only friend other people that he knows in real life.
M complained at first about having to friend us, but then one of his friends, J, sent D a friend request. And I think perhaps he heard from some friends that they had their parents as friends also.
Anyway, I've set up a page now. I don't know how much I'm going to do with it, but I guess we'll see. I find it odd some of who it says I might want to friend - some people I know, some people I went to college with (but don't remember knowing) and some people who seem to be just random. Including one person who sent me a friend request within 10 minutes of setting up my account. I have NO clue who she is and I only know one person on her friend list. Weird.
If you know me, feel free to send me a friend request. Otherwise, for now, I'm not particularly searching out people.
