  1. I’ve tried to stay away from Facebook for so long (considering all of the time I waste just on LinkedIn)… but I’ve finally succumbed. Wanting to see friends’ pictures what did me in… but I’ll have to work on #9 as well.

    I love all the Facebook apps. My WordPress blog posts, Google Shared Reader items, and del.icio.us bookmarks import directly into my facebook.

    Of course, keeping things in perspective, a little facebook fun is cool too. After all, it’s the fun that keeps us hooked on it. 😀
