Books and stuff for those not afraid to think and laugh at the same time.
It's about time!!!! ;)
Yeah, well, uh, what can I say. Last year I signed up on under the radar using the name of the protagonist of the Fred books, but I never check it. I'm just not a Facebook kind of guy.For an example of why, here's the last 3 updates from one of my "friends":Today: Monday +Rain= Yucky Day!!!Today-1: Going to start this Beautiful Day off with a big cup of Hot Coffee!!!Today-2: At the Streetz Dance Competition!!! Go I Rule!!!If content is king, then this poster is a pauper.
Hahaha! Yeah, well I have about 20 or so teenage 'friends', and yes they use it like twitter. (I have a twitter feed too, which I check about twice a year.)So you have to scroll past the nonsense. Still, it's good for sharing ideas, photos, videos, and keeping up with family and friends who might be far away - and you wouldn't normally have time to write to them individually.Facebook usage seems to be inversely related to age. My four oldest sisters (59-68) have never used it - they still write emails - but my teenage daughter and her friends are on it all the time, and they no longer use email.
Well, then, there's the thing. I don't keep up email correspondence with people, either. I'm not much for small talk and the mundanity (if I can use that word) regardless of the medium, as you may remember from or correspondence of long ago. I'd rather talk about something of moment or not talk at all.
