For those of my generation who, like me, do not really comprehend the need for Facebook:
Presently, I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying some of the Facebook techniques & principles.
Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell the passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel, what I have done the night before, and what I will do tomorrow.
Then, I give them pictures of my family, my dog, me gardening, and spending time in my pool. I also listen to their conversations, and I tell them I love them.
And, it works.
I already have three persons following me ... two police officers and a psychiatrist.
... and I think I have been reported to the FBI, CIA, and Homeland Security.
... I know I'm on several "watch lists" ...
It's good to feel important!
