Facebook is really a powerful tool in meeting people. Recently, I was able to chat with my former boyfriend 23 years ago. and it is funny. After all the years, we did not see each other, we only see the latest photos of each on facebook. Have you experienced the same?

I had a similar experience that you have. And I think it was a great way of putting some sort of "closure" on that past relationship coz we really wan't able to talk about what was wrong when I just stopped talking to him in 1985. Although I had other relationships after time and consequently got married, there was a huge question mark on my head about what was the truth about him. And yes, Facebook has become the instrument to finally give me that peace of mind. He has become a good friend since.

For me, the old feelings sparked once more when I saw his photos in facebook although we are friends now. I do not know why the old "good" feelings is here again. I also just left him hanging before and I married another guy. Since then I do not have any information as to his whereabouts and in general his life. Now, he is my chatmate

I created my Facebook account a long time ago, but in the beginning I didn't use it much. Last year I decided to look for some of my old friends from elementary school and high school and I managed to find some of them. It is a lot of fun to exchange messages with them and talk about the things that happened in our lives since the time that we met. I also found my old neighbour from the north of Denmark. We lived in same town 10 years ago and at that time we were close friends. Now we somtimes chat on Facebook, and we might also meet in person one day. It is fun to chat on Facebook and exchange pictures, but it would be even better to have a reunion

I also created my facebook years ago however I also had not used it often. I had used yahoo messenger. Just like you I found facebook a lot of fun. It was there where I found some of my batch mates as well and old acquaintances. Now we are thinking of having the reunion in our old high school ground. Hope more batch mate would come

Facebook is truly a very powerful tool . Not just communicating but it also keeps you busy aloof from daily boredom

Exactly. When I find myself bored or doing nothing, I turn to my facebook for something. It is either that I chat with my friends who are online or brows some pictures. One time when I was browsing some photos, I enjoyed myself looking at those amazing and unbelievable photos posted in there.

FaceBook really has been one of the sought after social networking site mainly because it lets us connect with people whom are affiliated to us, even the people who is far from our locality, we can track down via the social network. In addition, FaceBook has features to graph search which you are able to search what your friends and their friends are on activity.

What I have experienced was not almost the same with your experience. After our high school graduation, I never seen the woman that I first courted. Well, it was through facebook that I have seen her latest pictures and have known the updates of her life. However, she deleted her account. So bad for me now that I don't have any info about her.lol

Hi friend, good to hear that you chat with your old boy friend using fb, really it is a great tool to keep in touch with our old friends and relatives. I heard a lot of persons find their lost friends and relatives using fb and keep in touch with them using that site, so it is surely having a great power in connecting the people

Well, Facebook is a great tool. It has helped me get back in contact with former classmates, friends, and yes, an ex. It is interesting to think about how life has presented itself now to what it was like back then. When I went to my class reunion I was able to reconnect with some of them. I even seen my Ex, and realized how much better I am since I last dated him over 20 yrs. ago.

Indeed facebook, when utilized wisely and responsibly, can really bring people together despite the many years of not having any fonts t which is the main purpose if Facebook anyway. With this feature though, it can be easily subjected to misuse and abuse.

all networking sites are really powerful especially the FACEBOOK and YOUTUBE... you can be popular by good or bad, you can be famous, and also it can destroy your life.. sometimes, it's a great tool to find someone's missing... but most important, those sites can feel you that you're not alone... and people who are ocean far apart are just besides you... remember, it made to communicate, to be intact or befriends with others, it intend to be in good purpose... we shouldn't abuse those kind of opportunity and powers... god bless...
