My entire, I mean ENTIRE family uses phacebook........not me!!! I'm so frkn old fashion and out of touch I guess and I just don't like the whole FB concept; well mainly where it's headed and the headaches it can cause. I seem to be, perhaps unwarrantedly so, annoyed by just about everything these days. Technical stuff irritates me. My cell phone just a phone. APPS? What the hell for? Someone (anyone?) will have to convince that there is an APP I truly cannot live without. I can't see where planning my life or lifestyle around a phone APP is as adventureous as ridinng into a storm ya didn't know was out there.
I admit I'm cool with computers but I don't keep up with the technology. I'm still amazed by the first one I bought over a decade ago. I like the idea of CF because it's in tune with my lifestyle. FB is over bearing, opens up the world to all that is personal, and while it may expand ones horizon somewhat, it tends to be a life of fantasy or vicariousness. It's personality borders on commercialism. Here at CF we have a world of empathy, identification, confirmation, and I like that. Unlike FB however, CF doesn't take away the mystery or the excitement of living.........doing what we do. What each of us says seems to matter to the rest. Why? As I said before, we can identify.
Oh yeah, we spoke of "posers" here at CF. You can see and identify a helluva lot of phonies on FB. I don't deal with 'em in real time and I ain't doin' it in a world wide community of empy-headedness. Please please, present company excluded of course. I'm not categorizing everyone or anyone on CF who enjoys FB. It's just not my cup of tea.
Good to know I have 'company' ...........
I consider myself tech-savvvy but cell phone works just as great as my business phone which works just as well as emails, etc.
My daughter set up a FACEBOOK account for me so I can see pics of our grandbaby ........... I only check it when she TEXTS me that she has posted photos ..............haha!! Her husband (son in law) are 'hold outs' ............ so far!!
Don't need to SHARE EVERYTHING ............with total strangers, geeezz!
Human interaction, in real life, is becoming a 'lost art' ........
Technology ........ a necessary evil ...........
