Web Weirdness



I joined Facebook about two weeks ago, just in time to get in before the fifth anniversary of the network. I found this very bizarre notice just now:

"The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum recently launched a fan page in Facebook. You are invited to join, learn about our online resources and upcoming events, share with your friends, and please provide feedback about how we can best serve the Facebook community! The USHMM fan page is at http://tinyurl.com/c4ydrb."

The Facebook language is limiting, of course. But it doesn't seem right that a person can be a "fan" of a Holocaust museum. Any ideas for other words?

On Facebook, join Friends of Cancer Bitch. It's free, and no salesmen will call.

Why don't you befriend me (Sandi Wisenberg) on Facebook. I tried to invite you to join Friends of Cancer Bitch, but Facebook said I couldn't do it until we're friends.

How about "empath?" (Rather than "fan.")

Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of Facebook. I find it kind of addictive.
