But now that Facebook is more open, I've gotten a lot of invites from very cool people that I know professionally. I haven't accepted them yet and probably don't think I will. So, sorry, Fred. Nothing personal... It's more a matter of maintaining a community identity.
To me, Facebook is very college-y... very my generation. The actual physical "facebook", which we called the "meetbook" or "meatbook" depending on how you looked at it, was a very important document as a college student.
I'm not really a fan of the "open" Facebook, but I'll admit that it works to Fordham's advantage, b/c they can't get their act together to give us alumni e-mail addresses (seriously, how hard is that.. its just e-mail forwarding...). So, at least this way, my Fordham friends in my year can join. I'm going to keep my Facebook connections within a generation, if that's ok with you folks. You can still connect to me on LinkedIn, Flickr, MySpace, MyBlogLog, Last.fm, and del.icio.us.
