What I don't know could fill a book . . .

. . . a FACEBOOK.

Dear Connie:

We at Facebook hate to bother you but we feel the need to tell you that you are the only person in the world without a working facebook page. Sure, we know you joined a long time ago but suspect it was only to be able to use the ever famous and time consuming Pinterest.

In order for us to totally rule the world, we beg of you, PLEASE join the trillions of others who are communicating through this media.  Blogging just isn't getting you anywhere (of course, we have to admit that you have to POST in order to win friends and influence people which you seem to have neglected to do) so try your luck at Facebook. Everyone else is doing it and they seem to be doing more facebooking than they are blogging anymore!

So get with the program Connie!  Bring yourself up to speed in the latest technology!  Find new friends!  Forget your fear of being rejected when you make a friend request.  Nevermind that you might be found by that long ago boyfriend that you cringe over every time you think of him or that mean girl from high school or that former employer who is still looking for his stapler (shame on you!).  We promise you will just LOVE facebook and will be inundated with people wanting to know more about you!

Mark Zuckerberg
(and because you had to look it up, I'm the creator of Facebook)

So . . . I finally succumbed to Facebook.

I still went kicking and screaming but you know what?  It is kind of fun.  And I needed something to do to fill those few hours I wasn't on Pinterest or reading other blogs.  lol

Oh, I still don't know what I'm doing and I'm having a heck of a time getting a comment to post or a picture  to upload but I'm slowly learning.

Can anyone tell me the difference between a 'friend' and a 'like'?

Anyway, come check me out and be my friend or like me.  Don't make me regret my decision to be one of Mark's people!

Oh, and btw, I HATE this new blogger format!  Can I use that as an excuse not to have been writing?

That is funny!Welcome to Facebook!
Likes are usually for store or groups.
Friends are friends, and we have to send you a friend request for you to accept.
I will look you up!

Oh what a fun post Connie - welcome to facebook ;-) - I´ll go over and look you up.
A friend is a request you have to accept( a perxon you connect with that you know) - a like is a business page you can 'like' without any request or acceptence (just as following a blog) - does that make any sence?
Have a great day
