High School Reunions and Facebook
Danielle posted a video the other day about the effects of Facebook and I wanted to share a quick story to expand on some of her points.
Over the last year my husband has been connecting with some of his old grade school and high school buds. We signed up to attend his 30th high school reunion after a few of his classmates started planning it. They set up a Facebook group for their graduating class and started sending out invites on Facebook (and via postal mail). From there it just snowballed and people were making connections left and right. There were some classmates that were hard to find but with a bit of searching even some of those people were found.
