Have online social networks made HS reunions obsolete?

-

I know what you did last summer. And last year. And last night. Online networks have rendered reunions obsolete.

From the Boston Globe, Nov 29, 2008:

When landscape architect Rachel Kisker went to her 10-year high school reunion in 1998, she got a few good surprises. Sure, she had kept in touch with her close friends over the years, but back then she was in the dark about what most of her Scituate High School classmates had been doing during the decade since graduation. Now Kisker is preparing for her 20th reunion. This time, she knows just about everything about everybody. Thanks to the Internet, she knows where people live. She knows where they work. She knows what their spouses and children look like. She knows, in some cases, how they’ve spent their afternoons.
