What if you had a party and no one showed up? Most people would probably be crushed, right?
But what if you had a party where you just invited people you knew from Facebook? Say, 700 of your closest FB friends? That's what happened to the writer of this New York Times story published last week.
It was fascinating to me because it brings up the interplay between life in the "real" world and life online. But it also highlights how you friend people. I'm fairly cautious about who I friend on Facebook -- I don't really accept friend invitations from people I haven't met. (I mean, I accept Friend requests from people I met once, for sure, but not usually strangers). What's your take?
