One Saturday, I took my girl to take the AP exam prep test and she found couple new friends. After we left, I have asked her whether she had gotten their emails or cell phone numbers. She said nope. I questioned her how she was going to keep in touch with them since she mentioned that she really enjoyed chatting with them. She said, "I've gotten their FB IDs." -- I was speechless!

It had never occurred to me to ask someone their Face Book names. To me, cell phone and emails are still my primary contact information. But definitely not my girl's generation. Facebook IDs. I still couldn't get over it! --Totally cool!
Though, there is a downside to this new contact information. Potentially, there could be some people with the same Face Book names. And some of them would have their profile photos other than themselves which make them impossible to locate. I was wondering if Facebook would come up with a solution if they want to be THE contact information for the next generation.
Have you found yourself asking your newly found friend, What is your Face Book ID?
Until next stop,
