Palmistry on Facebook

OK, so I'm way behind the times. Yesterday I found out about after receiving an invitation to join. Turns out they already have over 24 million members, and almost 300,000 in just the Greater Vancouver area.

It looks like I'm not the only hand analyst late getting onto facebook. If you search for "palmistry" the total is only 11 people and 5 groups listed. Compare that to the people interested in "meditation" where there are hundreds of listings, more than 500 groups, and 96 events.

So why are there so few interested in palmistry on facebook? Maybe palmists tend to look back towards old research, while those on facebook are looking ahead. Or perhaps the stigma associated with palmistry is still too much for social networking.
