Okay, who here is not addicted to Facebook?? This is all I need--another distraction from actually getting things done around here. I was up at midnight last night having an animated and completely entertaining FB chat with one of my friends who lives in the Northeast. AND I had to wake up at 5:45am to get ready for work today! Ouch--it physically hurt when that alarm went off this morning! It was still dark outside. ...and even on a normal day I am not a morning person.

...they RETAIN archived copies of MY content??? Wha???
This is no lie ~~ tonight I was checking in on my FB and went to wish one of my friends a Happy Birthday. Well, on her wall another lady had posted that she was in town and to please call or text her and THEN she posts her cell phone number! On my friends' wall! This friend of mine has 156 friends on FB. That means that 156 people now know that lady's cell phone number. I thought it was really weird because the gal who did it is a society photographer at our local newspaper and why would she want everyone knowing her personal #? My friend Tiffany is quite the socialite, but even for her I don't think people should be throwing out their phone numbers on FB.
This is what my sister thinks!:
Well, whatever it is, I like it. The only info they really have on me is my name, e-mail address, & what schools I attended and if they are really interested in my chats, then who cares? A few days ago I was just messaging on FB with my Godmother who is in her 70's!
If you do make yourself a FB account, just PLEASE go to your privacy settings (at the top right of the page) and change all of the DEFAULT settings to "FRIENDS ONLY". And go to your application settings and change your settings there. I changed all of my feed and mini-feed settings to private. Everyone doesn't need to know every time you make a move.
