Should I say "hi" to an elementary school pal on Facebook?
Question Posted Wednesday July 29 2009, 6:17 am
I just got a Facebook, and found some people I haven't seen since third grade on the site (I am 17). Would it be odd if I posted something on their Wall saying "hello" out of nowhere? I found them through others' friend lists.
(Seriously. One thing that many people dislike about Facebook is getting friend requests from former classmates who never really talked to them when they went to school together. Facebook is for keeping in touch with people, but keeping in touch is for people who matter.)

I hadn't talked to my childhood best friend since I was 6, and found her facebook, so I added her and since then we're friends again. We're actually supposed to hang out tonight, so I say go for it, they won't think you're weird at all.
