I have to say that as a mobile employee one of the things I've missed is the camaraderie I see at the companies I visit. They recognize birthdays, special events and people always seem to know what everyone is up to. But as I'm on the road I have yet to have anyone at my company even wish me happy birthday much less know about any other milestones I've achieved. My 5 year anniversary came and went without anyone knowing.

And now there is Facebook. I know when my colleagues' birthdays happen and I get a chance to write "Happy Birthday" on their facebook wall. How nice is that? I think I can appreciate the social network aspect of these sites. It is also interesting to see everyone trying to aggregate their data on disparate sites. That is one area I'm interested in because, quite frankly, there are too many social networks. Even internally at my company we have social networks and while it is all interesting I don't have time to participate on multiple networks. For now I do keep up on facebook.
