Apparently I haven't cleaned out inbox messages from 2007. I was a lot less jaded back then. Facebook was an exciting tool to get back in touch with old acquaintances and friends, and I shamelessly inboxed people to see how they were doing, strike up conversations, talk shop or talk church.
Now that stuff needs to happen in person or I feel like a creeper, or conversely, that I've somehow made an important friendship less sacred. I guess it's a combination of evolution of facebook; and me getting more socially intelligent and realizing that not everyone and their mom wants to hear from me.
