I almost instantly regretted it.
I am a writer. I do not write in sound bites that fit on the wall.
So I always ran out of characters before I ran out of something to say.
Then, the little wet-behind-the-ears Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, declared that privacy was no longer a "social norm," and that was all I needed to deep-six Facebook.
And yet, many of the bloggers I follow are on Facebook. Even when they post that they don't really like it.
So I want to know...is there an advantage from a genealogical perspective to being on Facebook?
I frankly do not have any desire to re-connect with people with whom I attended grade school. I don't play games, or send cyber-gifts to people.
But, for those who have done it, is there a benefit to creating a surname or family page on Facebook? Have you made connections that helped with your research?
