Some of you may heard about the online craze among American college/university students, The Facebook. If you are a college student, are you a member? Are you engrossed by it? Obsessed with it?
As a commuter student, I find it the easiest way to learn about on-campus happenings (yes, there is indeed a party listing), organizations, and who the crap is in my classes. The best part is the "Social Network", so you are connected with people who add you as friends, their friends, friends of those friends, etc. Not that this actually translates into actual "real life" friends for me, but I do find it quite fun to browse. It sucks you in.
I was obsessed by it, but then I got over it. Then our basketball team joined, and I made it my life's mission to friend all of them. It's pretty handy for finding out people's AIM names and phone numbers when you drop your cell phone and it breaks into 4 pieces
