The Web has been a great way for former friends and coworkers to find me and vice versa. And I'm not talking sites like classmates.com or even MySpace. Plenty of folks need only Google me to find me and sites like FaceBook and LinkedIn are what's helping me reconnect with those I'd long admired and adored but with whom I just lost touch.
The downside? There are folks with whom losing touch wasn't such a bad thing. Anyone from ex-flings to idea-stealing-corporate-mongers have resurfaced. Especially lately.
Can anyone relate? How do you handle it?
On the Web, you can run but you can't hide. In the ex-flings case I find myself using the, "I'm sorry, I don't remember you" routine. Bitchy, I know. But hey. Whereas with the idea-stealing-corporate-mongers, I just don't accept their invites to connect.
Now that you know all of my secrets, what are yours? (chuckle)
