Denny Burk has posted a link to the video "Twenty-Five Things I Hate About Facebook". Yes, I pretty much hate every single one of those things about Facebook. In fact, I'm a pretty bad Facebooker. I'll do friends. I'll do the occasional chat. I don't do applications. The IT-guy in me just automatically refuses when faced with ominous prompts about giving access to my profile to things I don't know and trust. So, I don't do flair, don't do bumper stickers…don't do a lot of things. Facebook has its annoyances.
But there is one thing that I really love about Facebook. Facebook smashes your entire world together. Your church friends, your non-church friends, your past, your present—it all comes colliding in Facebook. That reality makes it just a little bit tougher to be living a double life. Not impossible—I know that there are ways around this. But just a little bit tougher. And I'll take that as an improvement.
So to all of the members of the FBC Farmersville Facebook group: Your pastor is watching. And, of course, I know that you are watching me. Just please disregard those skinny, geeky pictures that my college roommate put up. ;-)
