I like the Facebook group

I said some grumpy things about Facebook in my last posting on Dan Clore's new group, but I do like the group and hope more of y'all will join.

At the end of the day, the main virtue of Facebook in 2012 is that it's where the people are. The group already has 137 members, and it's fun to join the group just to go through the list and see who's there. I saw some familiar names, and also some names that were  unfamiliar to me, such as Donald Meinshausen, who "Helped found the current libertarian movement by act of ceremonial magick or the draft card burning at the 1969 YAF convention," and folks such as Gavriel Discordia PsyIndustries, George Dorn (he's listed as a member), Raw Fnord, Zanryu Darkheart and Johnny Occupy Lemuria.

It's worth pointing out, I think, that being connected can involve not being on Facebook very much. One I joined, all of the postings on the wall were emailed to me. I only have to log in if I want to make comments and post something myself. You can join and still prefer Twitter, as I do, or join and still hold social media in general in disdain.

UPDATE: Mr. Dorn has now confirmed me as a Facebook friend. Thanks, George!
