So It Looks Like I’ll Finally Get to Try Facebook

Open Facebook – Facebook apparently is going to open up their doors to everyone and let anyone who wants to check it out participate. I think this is pretty good news. I’ve heard a lot about Facebook in the past but since I went to a pretty small high school that doesn’t give out email addresses to alumni now I was never able to try it out.

I did give it a try a while back but was locked out by the fact that I had to have an email tied to my high school which was a good 20 years ago and something that I didn’t have.

Looking forward to finally checking it out.

It looks like they were going to open it up to non school users today (per Forbes) but have decided to do it in the next few weeks instead.

“”Last week, we learned we need to do a better job communicating on launches,” says company spokeswoman Melanie Deitch. “We are going to think through how to better inform users, and we don’t want to risk expanded registration being a big issue on the heels of last week’s changes.” Deitch said the company might communicate with users in coming weeks about the site’s growth pace via blog postings and comments in user groups.”
