Facebook before face-to-face

Today I became friends with a new minister here in Colchester via Facebook before meeting up in person thus creating the perfect opportunity to arrange to, well… meet up in person.

In a slightly creepy way Facebook has become almost invisible – part of the social water within which many of us swim.

    If I remember rightly, you & I were facebook friends before we met in “real life” too?

    Wow! Is that so? Of course, I have a few Facebook friends who I have still never met, mainly in other countries. I think what made this connection seem so odd was that I would normally have called and met up with new church leaders before entertaining any idea of linking to them through Facebook. This probably says something about the generation of newer church leaders who are around that it’s a perfectly normal thing to link via Facebook (and to chat there as well) first.
