I originally joined Facebook a month or so ago when someone thought they had found me there but could not understand why I looked so young. Well it was another David Gurteen - only two of us as far as I know - me and my nephew.
So I joined and the first friends I added were of course my nephew and then my children though in their early twenties they are hardly kids anymore.
I am not so sure though that my son liked the idea when he posted on my "Facebook wall" - "lol. i never thought i'd be networking on facebook with my dad. welcome to facebook"
But since then I have found a load of other people on Facebook. It really does seem to be a hit. If you wish to see my profile - even add me as a friend then here I am.
But watch this video of a presentation by a rather nervous Mark Zuckerberg. Mark is the founder and CEO of Facebook - age 23. Facebook's growth figures are amazing. It has 24 million active members and 100,000 people are signing up each day.
