Facebook, Orkut, Hi5 and what have you...

My friend sent photos of her new baby and I could not see them unless I became a member of Facebook, so I took courage in both hands and enrolled for it. Actually I am very scared of social network sites because of its many misuses. But once at facebook I found that many friends and relatives are there and I came to see one baby's snaps but I also got to see snaps of many other babies of many other friends whom I had lost touch with. Then I moved on to Orkut as my cousin had said that she had some pics there, and sure enough I found others there too! Now I have profiles in every network worth its name. In fact I have got quite addicted to it! I am at it all the time to the alarm of the mite, who gets quite irritated to see me tapping away all the time! The mite and the Mr are down with cough and cold and therefore I just cannot do my thing in peace with them moping about the house all the time.
The problem with children who are ill is that they do not understand the meaning of rest. You have to make them sleep if you want them to just lie down. The mite is not ready to admit that there is a frog in his throat and continues to sing his songs and chatter continuously in his hoarse voice- if I tell him to keep quite and give his voice some rest, he takes offence! The Mr is going about with a sad face, I am feeling very sorry for them- get well soon Mr and mite!

i just can't control myself. Nearly all my school friends are in facebook and my cousin and niece also sends comments.It is a pleasure to see all my school pals and their families. I got two messages from pals whom I have not met since 1986 when we passed out from class X!

and only a week back got onto facebook and found some more friends.. lot of friends overlapping btn orkut and facebook...

You've said it. I am quite dizzy zipping between the two. I have Hi5 also, where an uncle two nieces a very dear ex prof and two cousins await me! I am quite exhausted!
