Facebook Killing the High School Reunion
Just like video killed the radio star and the DVD killed VHS, Facebook may be on the verge of destroying an institution: high school reunions. Think about it...for many of us, there are only a handful of people that you went to high school with that you would even care to see in the first place. And once you have a few drinks and catch up with them, what else is there? With Facebook, you don't even need to go to a reunion to catch up; just search your high school class and add your friends. Now as a 1984 graduate (as if the video link didn't give away my oldness already), my graduating class only has about 10% of it, but for more recent graduates, it seems like everybody has a Facebook. My nephew and nieces have hundreds of friends each, and they know all of them; my Facebook has about 30 friends, only 1 that I graduated with. How sad...
