Facebooking And Twittering
I have been an FB user since late 2007 and initially got hooked because of the novelty of having reconnected with some long-forgotten friends from grade school and high school and previously unknown relatives. Two years, a network that has expanded to 600+ and about a dozen reunions later, I find myself logging in not just to check up on buds and next of kin, but also to play the numerous applications which the creators so ingeniously embedded into the site to entice more and more people.
On weekends when I don't have plans to go out, I am usually online till dawn, playing either Fashion Wars, Sorority Life, Pet Society or Hangman, superpoking, receiving and giving gifts, smiles and hugs or answering some cheesy quiz like Which Foreign Guy Should You Date, etc.

Now does anyone else FB and also tweet like me? Haha! Yes, folks, I have likewise succumbed to Twitter. Although I don't really update or check in as much, I like to "stalk" the celebrities I follow through there - hehe. Check these out:
We live in an era where social networking has truly evolved, as this has made getting in touch faster and more convenient. Sometimes, though, don't you also get the hankering for good old fashioned hand-written letters and hours-long phone conversations?
