I suffered a bout of complete insanity over the weekend.
Maybe it was due to some misalignment of the planets?
Maybe it was the incessant racket from those fuckers digging up the lane?
Whatever the cause, I set up a Facebook page for this site.
I have always had a sort of love-hate relationship with Facebook. I hate the way it constantly nags me to become friends with someone I never heard of. I hate the way it uses “like” as some form of almighty approbation, without providing a dislike to counter all that treacly cyber-love. I hate the way it insidiously tries to wheedle personal information out of me which it can presumably then sell on to the highest bidder.
What do I love about Facebook? You’ll have to come back to me on that one as it will require considerable thought.
Setting up the page was a nightmare. Facebook is about as intuitive as a set of Ikea instructions, and seem to require a degree in the black arts to work it. Maybe that’s why Herself likes it so much? I can’t even play around with designs and layouts without everything I do being broadcast to an unsuspecting world.
Anyhow it is there, and I will leave it there for the moment. So far, eight people “like” it which I suppose is over one billionth of the world’s population, which isn’t bad? Apparently I have to get 22 more before I can do various things on the site which just goes to show how Facebook values quantity over quality.
Maybe I’ll delete it tomorrow?
If only I could find out how…….
