facebook in heaven





the world has become smaller with social networking sites like facebook flourishing. word gets around faster now, with my friends' status updates coming up every second. help can get to you faster too because of these sites like what happened during the ondoy calamity in the philippines and the perez hilton story.


i feel like my friends on the other side of the world are just on the other side of the room. i don't feel the distance at all. i can chat with them when online and leave a message when they're not, expecting a response within the day.

what used to be difficult socializing activities are now a click away from happening through facebook. people i've lost contact with can now be easily tracked. most of the time they even get to me first through suggestions from friends. it's that easy.
however, there are still things you would love to do on facebook if only you can...





...reconnect with your friends who have gone ahead. facebook suggests this but it's impossible. we can only do facebook with them through our prayers. that's what we should do especially this all soul's day.

sue, you have come up as a suggestion twice this week. i will reconnect with you in my prayers. your facebook in heaven wall says we miss you.

tita daisy, a facebook in heaven status update from your sisters says there will be a reunion this december. even if you won't be physically with us your memories will forever be cherished. 


to all my relatives and friends who are now with the lord, you all are tagged.

sometimes its creepy to have this kind of experience when a departed friend will be suggested by facebook. But at least their memory will always be remembered.. their online life is extended until the next dormant account purging..

@atty: true. and my friend sue was suggested twice in a few days. It was like she really wanted me to do something. Then I realize that it's almost all soul's day when I saw this.
