An episode of "The Big Bang Theory" this season included Sheldon asking, "Why is another man throwing random livestock at her?"
Sheldon was looking at Facebook for the first time and was perplexed by the seeming oddity of some of the "games" people play. I was in his position just a few months ago. All the poking, tagging, incubating eggs, mafia games, etc., etc. would make my head spin!
What I've enjoyed about Facebook is crossing paths with so many people. I've gotten to know more about many of you, our viewers. Plus, I've reconnected with people college and high school, and even have a few family members with whom I'm able to keep in closer contact. The trouble is, you can easily get bogged down in everything else there is to do on Facebook.
Because of that, I've had to put some limits on myself. I'll accept all friend connections - one can always use more friends! I'll return messages and reply to comments on my status. I've limited myself to two sports teams - my college alma mater, Marquette, and, of course, the Green Bay Packers - so don't be offended if I don't continue your wave! I have a little green patch and hunt for eggs, but that's about it for the games and gifts - no mafia wars, food fights or snowball throwing for me!
I know of some people who strictly limit their friends, declining strangers and people from high school with whom they never spoke. Other people don't do chatting - status updates are merely links to other sites of interest. How about you? Any limits you place on your Facebook usage? Maybe you don't want to Facebook at all - why not? Let's hear from you!
