And, then, there are others whose free time is so limited, FB is the only way they can share time with friends and family, whilst enjoying some interactive games. Enter, my hardworking sister, who casts a scant eye at my pajama-clad figure every morning as she faces the elements, trudging off to work. Hey! I did my time. Paid my dues. Put in those 20-hour days. I digress.
Here is what is on her screen almost all the time. It's something about egg collecting. You find them on other people's sites, capture them, nurse them for a few days, and then the turn into some of the most beautiful creatures drawn by very skillful artists. These three lovelies were just eggs, like the chartreuse one below, when she collected them, and then they tranform into something so beyond what you could ever have imagined.
Turns out, my baby sister is like in the top 100 of the ENTIRE WORLD of egg collectors and has developed very solid friendships with some of them. I've been lucky enough to see her entire collection (there's hundreds of them!) and the beauty of them all takes my breath away. So, for the present, this is the best part of FB -- not the invasiveness -- but the opportunity to link with people sharing a fun interest, chitchat, and make hardworking people feel good. How do you feel about Facebook?
