Once my friends at my retirement community and I discovered Facebook a little over a year ago, I started finding childhood friends and out-of-touch co-workers. The satellite internet specials I had found when I moved to the community let me chat on Facebook chat and keep up with everyone’s whereabouts and projects.
But I was hesitant to add them as friends on there because I knew that they may not want to be friends with me on there and I wasn’t sure if I wanted them to see my Facebook wall anyway. It’s not that I wanted to keep my conversations private, it’s that some funny jokes that my friends post on my wall could make my grandkids feel inappropriate just because they probably don’t want to know that their relatives think about that stuff.
However, I guess that one of my grandsons found me on Facebook because he sent me a friend request on there. I accepted, and just made sure that my wall was hidden from him. I noticed that he did the same to me.
That’s a compromise I’m OK with.
