Suddenly yesterday I started receiving hundreds of friend requests on Facebook, far more than I normally receive.  I Tweeted this fact and others replied that they had experienced the same phenomenon.  Finally pieced together why.  Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg sent an open letter to all 350 million or so Facebook members about new privacy provisions on the wildly popular site.  See the letter here. In response to his letter, Facebook users were replying to Mark by asking to befriend his 900 friends, of which I am one.  The power of networking on Facebook.  But Mark is going to have to do something with his own page.
