Do you like me?

FaceBook knows how to press the emotion button, don’t they? Someone asks me, “Will you be my friend?” And I have only 2 choices: Yes or ignore (=No, I won’t be your friend). How can I do that to so many people that I do like?

Here’s what I wrote in my profile info, to try to soften the turndown (or at least to ease my conscience):

Dear real-life friends, I wish I could be FB friends with all of you, but I’m too finite. I’m using FB mainly to connect with my huge, widely spread-out family. Please know I’m sad every time I press “ignore.”

Well maybe here’s a way to acknowledge the reality of my finiteness and to draw the friendship circle larger — the Noel Piper FB page.

Now it’s your turn to decide: Do you like me? No, really, if you choose not to press Like, I won’t take it personally.

  1. Giggling on this one. :) Like, like

  2. Classy, Mrs. Piper. I Like you all the more for both approaches. Besides I’m more honored to call you my sis in Christ, than a friend on Fbook.

    Blessings to you and ministry!
