I now have 1000 facebook friends. Of course that is wrong I can count on one hand the friends I actually have and since I do not have 1000 fingers it's way off base.
However most are authors and people involved in publishing. There are book groups and I can't help but be alarmed that facebook refers to their updates as 'stories', no, stories are what my authors write. They also write books updates are just that updates and while I do believe that everyone has a story that needs to be told...I think it's wrong the way facebook uses the word.
Personally I think my life is boring but it wasn't always boring however, I am not in any hurry for everyone to know MY STORY aas a matter of fact I think some incidents are better left in the past and far away from my present let alone my future.
Anyway back to facebook I like that it's free and I can keep up with everyone's day. I like that when my friends get on there and say "Good Morning" they mean it. I don't always read all of my emails. I really don't read group emails all the time but I do check in with my facebook page/s everyday. I have a couple of family members I keep up with this way and it's nice to see pictures of my grandchildren posted.
Of course as you all know ever since I quit smoking a year ago Nov 1st, I list books from amazon, cross stitch patterns etc...this does help me not rush out the door to buy a pack of cigs. I feel facebook is a good thing but it can be a diversion for me and I try not to spend more than once or twice a day over there (unless I'm posting books).....
How do you use facebook?
