Gotta say that that I would friend a dog a lot faster than a baby, lol.

well... I do quite a bit of work in social media and whether we like it ornot the way we communicate and share information is changing - email to people in their 20s is as slow as writing an actual letter - it doesn't mean the communication is less VALID -- after all it is still communication -- we all have face book pages with our kids photos on them -- for a young couple who has been weaned on social media this is simply a way to communicate and share the baby's progress and display their pride.

Meh. If it works for the Mom and the extended family, what difference does it make? My oldest sister, whom I adore and admire and consider to be among the most level-headed, rational, no-nonsense people I've ever met, made a Facebook page for her dog. And as soon as she did, I friended him. If it's good enough for my sister, then it's good enough. That's a philosophy that has served me well for 49 years now; I see no reason to change.

I can't imagine spending that sort of time on something so inane. Nor can I imagine who on earth would want to look at it.
