The curse of Facebook

A very good friend – about my age – was persuaded by a friend who has relocated to foreign parts, that she should open a Facebook account in order for the two of them to keep in touch. 

She did, and has hardly used it at all. 

Problem is, now she’s being contacted by folk she was at college with more than 20 years ago. Should she get in touch with them? There was probably a good reason why they didn’t keep in touch after college, why does she need to make fresh contact with them now, after all these years? And why do they think that finding long lost school friends is necessarily a worthwhile exercise? 

As you might have gathered, I’m not on Facebook!
