Although I didn't think of myself as exactly being at the top of the social ladder in high school, apparently many of my former classmates now consider me the king of social media.
Last night Niskayuna High School's Class of 1990 had their 20-year reunion. It was so great to see so many old faces -- many of which I haven't seen since graduation. At least, not in person.
That brings us to modern marvel that is Facebook. I seriously lost track of how many people said to me, "Hey, Chris, I see you on Facebook all the time!" or "Yeah, you're all over Facebook."
Another person looked at the drink in my hand and asked why I wasn't drinking a cup of coffee. Apparently I've written many status updates about enjoying a cup of coffee.
Then there was the guy who told me I'm on Facebook so much that I have the most recognizable face in the room. I know that was meant as a compliment, but I admit I was a little embarrassed. Am I putting too much out there?
For the record, I think I only did a few updates on Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare during the course of the party.
I was one of the first singers of the night and did a very lame rendition of "Great Balls of Fire." Much later in the evening I had the urge to take another crack at it. It took a while to decide what song to do, but I finally settled on Van Halen's "Jump." However,when the DJ told me I'd be the last song of the night, I immediately changed my mind. "New York, New York" would be the perfect song to end the night!
I managed to get a good number of the attendees on the dance floor to sing along and start a kick line.
And of course I couldn't wait to update my Facebook status about it.
