Adding Facebook & Hyves friends

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

The results of my little test were not too surprising…still, without *any* effort I managed to get 4 friends on Facebook and 8 on Hyves. It shows that social networking is what the name implies, SOCIAL networking, a two way communication tool.

One of the most amazing things though is that an old dormmate from Hampstead Centre (way back in 1994 when I was studying in Australia), found me on Facebook last weekend…very cool!!

I’ll start adding friends myself and grow my social network…let’s see what happens. 

For the record, Facebook is relatively small in NL (the ‘Netherlands‘ network only has 80,615 people…Norway for instance has 418,937 people in the ‘Norway‘ network, a country with roughly four times lower population!)
