So the other day one friend of mine invited me to a home party, where I knew absolutely no one. Fair enough, I love to meet new people!
I received the invitation to the event on Facebook. Yes, that’s how the young lads do it now. No phone calls, no text message, nothing but a Facebook invitation. Anyway, after looking through the list of attendees, I headed off to the party and I had the chance to meet a lineup of awesome people!

The day after, I jumped onto Facebook to add them to my friend list. Five of them responded quickly and accepted the friend request, and my Newsfeed went crazy!
Almost every single update I could see was from these 5 people. Old photos, comments and the likes were literally thrown in my Newsfeed. Nothing was left for my other friends, Facebook wanted me to know more about these 5 new beautiful people. So did I, as I had no other choice!
If you attend an event where you make new friends, expect their updates to rank high in Edgerank, at least for a few days. It almost seemed like Facebook considered them as my new best friends. All of a sudden, their friends pop on the people I may know, and all their events were also listed.

Within the next few days, the situation went back to “normal” and my “usual” friends started to make their way back. But wow, that was interesting to see!
I personally find it very cool that Facebook encourages you to start chatting after a new connection is made. We all know that once you add someone to your friend list, it’s very likely you want to meet him again, and pushing content is a brilliant way to start the conversation online!
