Why Can’t We Be Friends?

Yesterday, a facebook friend presented a very good idea to me. Wanting to share her idea with everyone possible, she then asked, “How do we get the word out?” I told her to share it on her wall, asking her friends to share as well. Sounds pretty simple. Doesn’t it? The problem is that many of us only have two hundred to a thousand virtual friends.

When we get word from Taiji-Hell that the banger boats have set out, we start to pass it on. I instant message almost every one of my friends to let them know that it is time to get to work. Facebook only allows for twenty names in a mailing list, so it takes me a while to get these messages out. I say that we start utilizing the facebook features for what they were intended. If I have 5,000 friends and I post something on my wall, it will subsequently appear on that many other walls. If each of my friends has five thousand friends, who in turn pass that post on by sharing, we will reach hundreds of thousands in seconds!

Let’s rock this world, baby! Go to any friend’s page on facebook and you will notice a link in the lower left-hand column that says, “Suggest Friends.” Leave a message on their wall telling them what you have done and ask them to do the same. Send a message to all of your friends telling them you want more friends. And don’t forget to send me a friend request as well.

One other thing. If your friends list is full, find a place to congregate. There are multiple pages on facebook that are designed just for that purpose. In fact, I have one right here: Cyber Whale Warriors
