Ellie Levenson has written about how the Deputy Leadership runners are using Facebook on Comment is Free HERE. She also makes some very perceptive points about Facebook in general. I joined it a few months ago but until this weekend hadn't really done much on it. I was slightly bemused to keep getting messages from people 'wanting to be my friend'. Many of them I had never met or spoken to, but it turns out they are regular readers of the blog. Facebook is rather a fun thing, if slightly addictive if you let it be. It has a lot of fun features - you can 'poke' people - I've never quite worked out what that implies - , you can alert people to events, even start your own. All in all it's a brilliant social networking community.
Anyway, it seems I now have 249 friends on Facebook. Click HERE to become the 250th!
