The Millions Hits Facebook

July 29, 2007 | 1

coverI’ve never been big on social networking sites. In fact, until Friday I’d never joined one at all, but the rising clamor of millions of Facebook fans convinced me to finally check it out. After a couple of days I can see the appeal. The site can offer hours of mindless entertainment, checking on updates from dozens of friends. And while it’ll be interesting using the site to connect with friends, colleagues, and acquaintances, I quickly saw that one of Facebook’s features might offer some fun for us here at The Millions.

I’ve gotten to know quite a few Millions readers over the years via email and comments on the site. The very nature of the blog, however, does not provide much of a forum for Millions readers to interact. Those who aren’t frequent commenters, meanwhile, rarely make themselves known at all. And so, to provide this sort of forum, I’ve created a group on Facebook called The Official Millions Fan Club. If you read The Millions and are a Facebook member, please join the group. I’ll be sure to keep the group updated on Millions-related news, and members can use the discussion boards and “the wall” to shoot the breeze. See you there.

created The Millions and is its publisher. He and his family live in New Jersey.

  1. I'am not shure that I know why, but amoung russian-speaking users is still the most popular social network. It is the tribune for writers, politicians, journalists and so on.

    I spend hours there. And I think one network is enough for me :)

    And will continue reading you here.
