...and little to no input from me.

For some reason, and I really don't remember why, I started using it.

In my case, finding old friends wasn't too hard, as I found FB pages for my elementary school and junior high and high school on there. Lots of memories and I was able to find a half-dozen or more friends from that era that I hadn't spoken to or known of their whereabouts for 40 years.

It's been GREAT!

I was just the best man at a wedding this summer. The groom was a junior high/high school buddy I hadn't seen in 40 years before re-connecting on FB. The bride was the girl who lived across the street from my family when I was a young child. I met her when I was 6. They met each other through MY FB page, since I was friends with both of them. Turned out he had a crush on her in high school, but was too shy to speak to her. They met, fell in love and got married last July!

Yes, there is a dark side, and I have stories about that too. BUT, since 95% of my experience has been positive, I tend to focus on that.
