My fellow Facebookers, it is official. Former President George W. Bush is now on facebook. Before you scramble to add him as a friend (if you so desire), let me clarify: he has created his own fan page, not an actual profile.
I know, I know. I really wanted to see statuses like: “Party at Cheney’s LOL” or “Forgot our anniversary. EPIC FAIL. Sry, Laura!” If you’re like me, then we must cast these ludicrous thoughts aside! Bush is using the fan page to update his supporters on his current projects since the end of his presidency (the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund, for example). Facebook users have responded well. Despite the fact that he has only posted 3 wall posts since Wednesday, several thousands of ‘likes’ and comments have been posted between them. The number of fans has reached nearly 121,000 in just 3 days.
Since the creation of the official fan page, Bush has given us his latest activities in a nutshell, promoted his wife’s latest book, and reminded us to remember the heroes who fought on D-Day.
