I love facebook. I don't think that comes as a surprise to anyone. It took a while to find my way around there, but now that I'm used to it, I love it. There are so many chances to catch up with lost contacts, and see what's up with my friends and family. It is a great tool, and my employers have even joined the fun!
However, facebook can be a huge time-waster, as well. Sometimes, that's OK. If I'm sitting around with nothing to do, why not waste some time playing mindless games on facebook? If I'm out of town at a convention, or on most work nights, I don't have a ton of time, so I just cannot get to all of the applications.
I love YoVille. I'm hooked on it, making it to "work" at least twice per day. The same can be said for MyFarm. I don't miss a day of harvesting and planting. On cabin-fever type weekends, I'll even do super pokes, green patch, the cove thing, etc. I can hit all of those applications more than once, on a long wintery day.
Now, comes the point that I needed to get to. I ignore application invites. Yes, it's true. When I get home in the evening to 42 invitations, there is NO way I can do them. No. Way. When I'm out of town at convention, and get a chance to get online, it's not uncommon to see over 60 notifications. Too much pressure, if I tried to do them all.
I guess I'm saying this to let you know, I don't always take you up on the offers. Outside of YoVille and MyFarm, it's all a crap-shoot. I appreciate that you think of me for that 1/4 second that it takes to click on my face. It means that you pictured me and thought of me for a short time. Thank you.
Just don't be offended, now that you know the truth.
Also, for those of you who feel pressure/guilt to add all of those apps...stop it. It's just a game. It's all good. We all still love you, even if you don't accept the random cow that gets passed your way. What? You didn't accept my cow? WHAT? Just kidding.
