My colleague and co-editor, Liz Gold, asked me why I'm one of the only Gen Xers in the world who doesn't have a personal Facebook page.

I told her I don't feel like staying in touch with people who I chose not to stay in touch with since high school. I know friends who "friend" people they downright hated.

I'm not saying I hold any grudges, I'm just saying I'd rather spend my valuable time on people who I care about in my present life, not my past one. For work, it's letting me stay in touch with people in my current job. So that's OK in my book. (No pun intended).

Check out this columnist's piece about what happened to her when an enemy from her past reached out on Facebook, "Connecting Former Foes."
