I loved reading the Peanuts comic strip. My favorite scenes were when Charlie Brown would come to ask Lucy a question and get her advice. We all have a friend like Lucy. The truth is that we have so many friends we rely on to give us simple advice from relationship questions, what clothing do they think I should get, or even what movie should I go and see.
Our friends are our world, our trusted advisors for times of joy and thankfully there for us at times of sorrow and stress. We have all turned to ask questions such as: ” What should I do about my aging mother? What should I do about my work situation? What do think I should tell my son/daughter about…. Friends are the best thing for us. And at time, even though we may not admit it out loud ( only around our friends) they are closer to u then our own families. Not to say that some of u are not best friends with our families.
If you grew up like me, in a culture where everyone, including people who were not your friends or relatives ( such as in My Big Fat Greek Wedding) loved to tell you what you should do. Well, today, March 26th, 2011 Facebook has finally made our lives much simpler or even more stressful since now we can not only ask our friends for answer, but we can get their friends friends answer as well.
As the saying goes, there are always two side to every coin. I for one am thrilled that now I have an application that can let me not only get the opinions of my closest friends but also have their closest friends, and their closest friends give me their opinion
I think facebook has again given us a wonderful application to use and eek out ” words of wisdom” from our most trusted supporters, our best friends. Let me know what you think and what are the typical questions you tend to ask for advice from you bet friends.
And by the way, if you would like to enable the application on your facebook just click this link. You will see it as an option in your status bar.
