What the heck is FACEBOOK????

I got an email today from someone inviting me to view their pictures on Facebook. I clicked on the link and ended up with my very own Facebook acct. Next thing I know I see names and photos of all kinds of people I know. There were little boxes next to them asking me if I wanted to be their friend? So I clicked on them. Then I stareted worrying, were these "friends" already on FB? Or did FB pull up my email address book somehow and now I have accidentally had "will you be my friend" emails sent out to people from my own address book? If so I appologize.
I did find that my cousin Jan from Sweden has a FB account. I couldn't read what he was saying because it was all in Swedish and I did not keep up with my lessons when he was trying to teach me. I also ran into another friend that I had not talked to in months. We actually spent about 3 hours on the phone tonight catching up. I also saw that my long-lost sister has a FB account. Hmmm... at least I know she is still alive?
So, what's the deal with Facebook? I can't really figure out what you do on there? What the purpose is? Anyone want to teach this "old dog" a new trick? Is it even worth my learning???
I am a little perplexed by it all. But I did get several emails "confirming me as a friend" to several people tonight. Another strange thing is that people were "writing on my wall" tonight saying "Hi" and "Welcome to Facebook Marta".
Fill me if you can.
Have a great Hump-Day tomorrow!!!!

Hi Marta!
Sheri, my dad and I all Facebook! It's a great way to stay in touch, load pictures for friends to see, etc. You can set your account to be a private as you wish. Just get on there and start Facebookin' and you will get the hang of it in no time!!!! I will friend request you!!!
