Even your dog is on Facebook

Are you on Facebook?

That’s probably a question you’ve asked, or been asked, at least several times.  I admit, I joined Facebook with a sense of resignation.  I held out as long as I could, gave in grudgingly, and now am as addicted as the next person by the cornucopia of photos and status updates from people I barely speak to anymore.

The fact that I read random updates about a person (he just got food poisoning on his trip to San Fran, she just made a smoothie with her new blender . . .) gives me a sense that we’re all great friends.  Otherwise, how would I even know such seemingly irrelevant facts?

Well, if you aren’t already on Facebook, now you have another reason to jump on the bandwagon:  Not only are all of your neighbors on Facebook, your neighbor’s dogs and cats are on Facebook too.

Just this Sunday, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg created a Facebook for his new Pulli puppy, named “Beast”.

Oh and Toki?  She’s already on Facebook.  Oh yeah, she was waaay ahead of the curve.

    Am I the last hold out? I am not on FB and I REFUSE! (of course, I said this about texting and the iPhone too and I finally jumped on those bandwagons in 2011!) FB does fascinate me though ever since I saw The Social Network. It doesn’t surprise me that animals have FB pages too! I guess I’m just from a different generation – I didn’t grow up with laptops, cell phones, texting, internet, XBox, etc. I had to walk five miles each way to school uphill in the snow 🙂

    Jenny – I had you in mind when I wrote this post . . . : ) Plus I think pet blogs and pet facebook pages are an interesting phenomenon. Toki and I seem to spend an equal amount of time online!

  3. Ironic I suppose that we love the outdoors but also spend a lot of time on our computers – especially on Facebook. We have smartphones so we can even check our Facebook and email at the trailhead. Is that sick or what? ha, ha.
