keeping your friends in the loop (or not so much)

Just like everyone else, I’m sure you’re being dragged into every realm of social media. First it was friendster, then it migrated over to MySpace, and now it’s Facebook. And instead of just your college buddies inviting you to join their networks back in the old days, it’s your parents, your family friends, coworkers and bosses, and people who may not need to see every photo of your life.

Last year, facebook instituted “friend lists” — and when I saw this NYT article that explained how to use them, I fwd’d it on to multiple friends who had encountered such interesting dilemmas, and now I’m sharing it with you.

Be safe with your online persona… and don’t let sharing hold you back from sharing in the fun!
