>Facebook is redundant
One thing we agree on. My account there is basically vestigial at this point, used only to communicate with people who don't know me on Twitter or Google Plus and I don't feel like texting.
That said, the first half of your post has nothing to do with the last half. I get that reuniting with someone after a long way away is a nice feeling, but, in terms specifically of high school Reunions, is largely a fake feeling. It's not "Oh, here's my long lost aunt/niece/brother/friend I haven't seen in years, lets catch up", it's "Oh, here's a bunch of people who happened to be born around the same time as me, most of whom I don't care about." Maybe I'm just cynical for my age (I'm only a few years younger than you, born in '85), but most of the people I care about from high school I kept in touch with. The rest were noise to my life.
