07 Dec Facebook Saves Lives
Well, not exactly, but pretty close. I’m out in Colorado this week with a bunch of friends (many of whom also happen to work for websites) and one of the group slipped a few minutes ago on some wet, snowy tile and dislocated his wrist (our friend Joe, founder of the website essembly). OUCH, I know. Anyway, the EMT showed up, and because our friend was in too much pain to really talk lucidly, Sam (founder of drop.io) pulled up Joe’s Facebook profile to get all his important bio information for the medics.Kudos to Facebook for assisting web entrepreneurs who, in times of medical emergency, couldn’t think of anything better to other than log into Facebook. Luckily, the EMT now knows Joe’s relationship status, and the fact that he’s a fan of Battlestar Galactica.
