Regular posting to resume soon

I've been in the process of trying to figure out Facebook over the past few days (among other things). I should be getting some new posts up soon. Please come back soon!

NO! Don't do it! It will suck your life away! I got on it a couple weeks ago and I'm ALREADY irritated and it's done nothing but confirm why I waited so long to do it!

(Um...I DID use it for a professional reason once because our work email was down and I had to get a message to someone.) But other than that....

adoro te devote,

So I'm finding out! The time consuming part for me is the problem I'm having with the functionality of Facebook. I am trying to figure all of this out in hopes that a Facebook group for our Diocesan Office of Vocations will be a helpful way to get out information and serve as a tool for helping to create a support network for vocations in our Diocese.

What is frutstrating is the fact that you can do certain things on your personal page that you can not do on the group. Slowly but surely we are figuring out the strengths and weeknesses of Facebook as a tool for promoting and encouraging vocations. We'll see if it's worth it in the long run.

No worries about spending immense amounts of time on Facebook for personal reasons - I simply do not have the time!

Brad,

Penny told me you were on Facebook, tried to add you to my friend list, but you are closing your acct. or was it the vocations group? Can't remember, my brain has been vaporized by Facebook.....much like Adoro said.

Actually, now I'm working on using it to start a group which will likely be limited anyway...forming a chapter of Third Order Dominicans. I'm not sure how far that will go, though, although it's possible it'll help connect a few other Dominicans without a home!
