To say I have met, know and or pitched a lot of people on the ActiveWords odyssey would be a major understatement. To suggest that Facebook is not a phenomenon would also be a major understatement. So here’s the rub. About ten times a day, I get a note that someone wants to be my friend on Facebook.
I don’t want to alienate anyone, so I routinely go to Facebook to see who this person is. Way too many times there is no picture, which might help, and a little bio, which doesn’t help much. So, when I am totally clueless I send back a response asking the person who has sent me the “added me as a friend” E-Mail how I might know them.
Most of the time I don’t get a response. Who knows, maybe the Facebook system isn’t designed for this kind of a response.
But there is a big part of it that reminds me a little of the scene in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” where Butch and Sundance are being chased by a posse, and they keep asking “Who are those guys”…
