First there were web sites. They were easy.
Then there were forums [fora?]. I got the hang of them.
Then along came the likes of iPod. I haven’t a clue about them. I don’t know what they are, have never seen one and don’t want one.
Then there were blogs. I’m slowly getting the hang of them.
Podcasting? I’m still experimenting with that.
But now there are all these ‘Social Networking’ sites. They have me baffled.
I’m in MyBlogLog, but haven’t a clue how to work it or what I’m supposed to do there. It gives me some nice information about who is visiting my blog, but I don’t know what else I’m supposed to do.
There are sites like Bebo and MySpace which I avoided like the plague because they seemed to be full of kids talking text-speak.
Then everyone started talking about Facebook. What the hell is that all about?
I joined yesterday. To my surprise, I found a couple of familiar faces in there. So I said hello.
It seems to be quite a complicated place. I haven’t explored it fully yet, but even at this stage I’m baffled. What am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to walk up to total strangers and Poke them? That’s the kind of thing a Puppychild would do, but not a Grandad.
I had a look around for my old school but it isn’t even listed [maybe they got some sense and demolished it?]. I don’t know how else to find people I know unless I type in their names individually. That seems tedious.
If any of you are members of Facebook, then find me and introduce yourself. There’s only one Grandad, and that’s Grandad Himself. And then tell me what I’m supposed to do next.
