Notice: Official John Scalzi Public Facebook Page Now Live
Posted on January 9, 2011 Posted by John Scalzi 15 Comments
So, I’m rapidly approaching the 5,000 friend limit Facebook imposes on personal accounts, because, apparently, when you say “yes” to nearly every friend request you get, that’s what happens. For those of you who will be locked out in the cold when this happens and/or feel that you otherwise don’t get enough of me on Zuckerberg’s Folly, I’ve gone ahead and created a public Facebook page, which apparently any number of people can “Like.”
What will I do with it? I have no idea. But the point is, now I have one. If you would like to like it, it’s here. If you don’t want to like it, well. I think I may survive. Maybe.
I hope you will forgive my presumptuousness at asking a question on your new Facebook Page. Just wanna give you something to smile about. Have a good day and good luck with it!
Very good! Because I don’t know you, so friending you on Facebook would just be creepy. But this is exactly what pages are for!
I totally liked your page thingy, *and* I’m friends with you on FB. Is there a special pin or hat or something?
If it helps I can unfriend you to make room for people who spend more time on facebook
Knew I should have asked earlier. Kenneth is right, though, it felt a bit creepy to ask some of the others who don’t/didn’t have “public” pages.
Good luck with that FB thingy.
Not on the Book of Face yet, but eventually when my website becomes a wholly functional user friendly commerce site, then the real fun begins.
I can hardly contain myself…

Dude, thanks for the 70’s double flashback!
If you would like to like it…
Donna Summer: “I love to love you baby…”
I think I may survive.
Gloria Gaynor: “I will survive!”
Time to dig into my vinyl stash.
By the way, who drew the sketch? I like it but I can’t read the sig.
Thanks for creating the page. I will join that to the pages I follow. If dropping me from your friends list will clear up spaces for people you actually know, please feel free to do so.
Wow— I’ve been reading this blog for a while, and never realized that you were a U of C Alum! (Found out from your facebook fan page.)
SO will you please submit “Fuzzy Nation” to the Alumni Magazine to be included in their ‘books by alumni’ section? Because, to read the magazine, you’re think the only books alumni ever published were on cultural studies! Come on, please????? Or submit some of your cool snarkiness to the alumni notes??? :)
Yeah, I thought it was a little creepy to send you a friend invite without actually knowing you, so I like the page, but I saw there was still time to try and friend you, so I sent an invite anyways. My kids recognize your kid, if you are incredibly bored and have nothing to do, you could see my kids.
Oh hell, now that I know Scalzi accepts ANYONE, I’m up’n my FB friend count while I still can!!!
Thankfully, I only FB friend people that I know in real life. My fandom, however, is free.
Sheesh. Build one little shrine around a life-like effigy of a guy, and get called a stalker.
An that restraining order was a total misunderstanding, honest.
I don’t generally friend folks I don’t actually know, but I am perfectly content to “fan” public pages. So: totally there.
