Yes. Its true. I am back on Facebook. I signed up, at the first of the year, to be a small group leader to some high school guys. I was told that I need a way to stay connected with them, probably via social media, so Facebook was the first thing that came to mind.
So here we go. Back down the rabbit hole. OK. I get signed back up, post a few pics, post a few messages, etc. Done.
I go to my next small group meeting and say, 'Hey everyone, put your Facebook names on this sheet of paper so I can friend you and we can keep in touch, let you know whats going on, when thing will be happening, etc, etc. I get the paper back and there are only two names on the sheet. LOL! OK, I get it. You don't want me keeping an 'eye' on you. Thats cool. Its the response that floored me. "No, we don't care about that." So what then? "Well, Facebook is for old people." Whhaaaaa? Yea, Facebook is for old people.
What have I done?!?!?!
I have learned one thing. Something I couldn't undo with my old account. DO NOT 'LIKE' ANYTHING! Thats right. If its worth giving a 'Like', leave a comment instead. Because I have not 'Liked' anything since I have been back on, I don't get tons of junk. They tried to slip in a few things, they though I might like, but I marked them 'Offensive'. They quickly apologized and haven't really pushed anything else on my. I am basically ad free. So far, anyway.
I still see a bunch of reposts of pics with some form of verbage added. Or some sort of video repost, thats supposed to be funny, but I typically block all of those. If you are one of those that just repost other's stuff, I truly do not mean to offend you, but I am more interested in whats going on in your life than anything else. I can't hardly give more than 5 or 10 minutes a day to Facebook so if I have to wade through a ton of junk to find a few good things, or important things, it will not be seen. Anyway....
I hope that everyone is having an awesome week.
Oh, Eds Lyfe to find me.
