Teresa Klein says that I’m silly for adding everyone to Facebook as my friend. She also notes that if you value your privacy you should make sure that your Facebook profile isn’t open to my membership. Actually I agree with her on that point. Me? I am leaving myself wide open. I’ve already had some really interesting conversations and renewed friendships because of my Facebook openness.
I just took a quick look through my friends list and guess that I’ve actually met about 25% of the people who’ve added me to my friends’ list. It’s an amazing list of people, by the way. There’s CEOs, developers, CTOs, geeks, and many more interesting people. I want to go through now and leave notes on how I know each of you, if I know you.
I’d love it if you also add how you know me, even if it’s through reading my blog.
Teresa, it might look silly to you, but at Gnomedex I’ll show you why it’s not so silly for people who have audiences to invite them onto Facebook.
