I spend a portion of my time on Facebook. Some might think it is a waste of time, but I find social networking to be a great way to do business networking (well, duh). So hopefully all that time commenting on people’s photos, making status updates and playing scrabble will pay off one day.
I’m sure they will. I have already made MANY business connections through Facebook, and even more so than on LinkedIn. Perhaps because I catch people off-guard.

* Grab the book closest to you. Now.
* Go to page 56.
* Find the 5th sentence.
* Write that sentence as your status.

* Don’t go looking for your favourite book, or the coolest one you have — just grab the closest one.
Of course, I grabbed the nearest book “How to Design Logos, Symbols and Icons,” by Gregory Thomas, opened to a chapter on the logo design of Netcenter, and posted what it said.
The whole thing is quite clever much different than the normal day-to-day facebook happenings. And the some responses were quite funny…although mine was not. “Considerations of future scenarios for the service were hypothesized and reviewed.”
One notable response was from Chalo Rojas who changed his status to “Slouching is a natural response, but this posture tends to stretch spinal ligaments and strain the discs and surrounding structures of the spine.” I wonder what book that was from? Is he studying Physical Therapy? Perhaps acupuncture… Or it could just be his employee handbook.
We should create more “status games” like that…
It seems like this blog is evolving into an extended Status update. As this being my fourth blog entry, I haven’t quite found a groove for my writing.
