Facebook for the senior generation
« on: 16.04. 2016 08:10 »
For those of my generation who do not and cannot comprehend why Facebook exists:

I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles.

Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later, and with whom.

I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.

And it works just like Facebook... I also listen to their conversations, give them the "thumbs up" and tell them I "like" them.

I already have four people following me... two police officers, a private investigator, and a psychiatrist.

I wouldnt worry about the two policeman or the private investigator, but I would stay well clear of the psychiatrist. *pull hair out*

Yes it is a vehicle for trivia but that is a curse of the new or not so new fashion following generation (my favourite hate of the moment -Stubble - scruffy buggers)

However I  joined FB some months ago, still finding my way around, I only have friends that I would want to talk to and one of them started a family Group, we pool photos and get to know what we are all up to (and who we all are, so many had got to my minds dark corners), this has to be a good thing specially with the small world we live in now and family all over the place (bit like here right)

So it has it's uses, depends how you use it
