I was never a person very good at staying in touch with people even though they touched me in many ways and changed my life. So as I grew up I lost contact with friends who meant so much to me. Their memories remained but work, family, children and other engagements always came first and one did not make an effort to locate these friends. For me Facebook was a very special gift for it helped me to get in touch with a girl I thought was the prettiest in grade 5, it helped see what happened to the naughtiest boy in my school, it made it possible to locate a long lost friend with whom I had spend hours chatting away to glory during my high school…this networking tied up loose ends in some relationships left open for years. It brought a closure and a sense of peace and calm for I was able to retrace my steps to almost all those who had mattered in some way in my life.
And it doesn’t end here. Facebook can now be used effectively by businesses to connect with their customers and build a long lasting relationship. This is the only way ahead.
