Facebook Nightmare

Blog Posted:1/30/2013 9:12:00 AM
I have finally been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

I have been persuaded to join Facebook, so I have ticked the box to 'request a friend' and 
I have ticked a lot of you here (sorry)... so if you get a request and you think to yourselves 'who the hell is this' well now you know. I won't be offended if any of you refuse me (who am I kidding yes I will ) no seriously I won't, and if I have missed anyone and you would like to be 'my friend' please let me know what I, or you, need to do.

As I am a Facebook virgin please be patient with me if I have to reply to anything as I am not technology minded, and more importantly if anyone can give me any tips to make things easy or any shortcuts I would be very grateful...

Can you post poems on it?  Happy Facebooking girls and boys....

I don't care for it very much, but it's kinda nice to know I have some photo albums over there my nephew helped me put up and once in a blue moon I read people's many posts. I do a Friday movie review, David. that's basically all I post over there. hope you enjoy it.

Facebook!? Bah! I became tired of people's updates -- "Hmmm, I think it's time for me to take a dump." (2mins later): "Heading to the bathroom to take a dump." (2mins later): "Oh yeah, taking this dump feels super good!" (6mins later): "Wiping my ass after taking a huge dump!" (3mins later): "Leaving the bathroom." (2mins later): "I am hungry, wonder what there's to eat?" (1min later): "Boiling water for some Mac & Cheese." .......... (2hrs later): "Boy, I sure need to take a dump."

"Free": If you are not paying for it, you are not the customer; you are the product being sold.

it can be habit forming David, but its nice to long on and get updated on what friends and family are up to, I hope you enjoy it. Whenever someone prints some strange thing about missing people, saving people, warnings of viruses going around, before you hit the share button, go to snopes.com and see if its fact or fiction, people tend to hit the share button before checking anything out

I really think Satan invented Facebook. This has to be the biggest distraction in a person's life. If I didn't have children or grandchildren I would not have an account.

In addition to what Suzette said about posting poems, you can upload a word document direct to a group, by clicking on the add file button. That way all your formatting stays as intended, but for your friends to read it that have to 1) be a member of the group and 2) click on the link. BTW, have you seen my poem The Facebook Hook? Just a little warning about how addictive FB can be!

Hi Sharon thanks for that and I have no intention of becoming an addict....

lol... fb is a nightmare/minefield or a pleasure... it all depends how you use it. I keep mine to long standing friends and family only since I got married a year ago. Before, I had hundreds of people on my fb friends list and it became impossible to manage. The only advice I can give you, is to be yourself and keep comments to the minimum.... Once you have commented, and you do not wish to get notification everytime someone just says "Hi" or a ":-)" smiley face, then you can go back to the link and click "Unfollow...". It is up to you to set your level of privacy, but I do not allow anyone to tag me in a post. It firsts goes to my Admin page for my approval... Above all: Enjoy it !!! <3 Su

The most important thing is to go to your Privacy settings and Admin and change it to your liking. Fb regularly updates their program and then it reverts back to the default functions... Yes, you can post poems, but it does not centre or do italics or bold scrip..... I put my poems on Publisher (a computer program) and post it as a "picture"... I hope these few comments help.
