Since last Friday, no fewer than 156 people took time out of their day to post birthday greetings and wishes on or via, my Facebook profile page.
I disagree. The fact that so many people, many of whom I have not seen in person in decades, and some who I see "offline" on daily basis; all took the time to post a greeting to me, I find to be nothing short of amazing.
It seems cliche'd to say things like "it is a testament to the power of social media." But in fact, it is. It has changed how we get in touch, how we stay in touch and with whom.
