According to an article posted on Mashable.com, Betty White may make an appearance this Saturday on the popular television show, Saturday Night Live.  A Facebook page, created by Dan Matthews on December 29, 2009, has 426,734 fans (as of 2/22/2010).  Betty White was not involved in the creation of the page, but implied that she would be willing to host the show.

    I love this article because I love Betty White and also because its a great example of why social networking sites are so important. I think its especially relevent to our generation because we are so much more technology oriented than the generations before us. The fact that people on Facebook can garner as much attention for an obscure cause like having Betty White host SNL just reinforces how valuable the site can be for relaying information. I also think the easy spread of information could be scary on a site like Facebook, where the person whom a page is dedicated to can how no affiliation. In this case its not being used in a malicious way, but it has been used that way before, which I suppose is the risk of any social networking site.
