|Facebook gets a bad rap.|
Why are some people opposed to Facebook so much? I think it is because they do not understand the functions of what Facebook is supposed to be about. Facebook is a tool used to communicate with others. I know my FIL watched some news show about privacy of Facebook users and proceeded to tell me all about how Facebook sells your private information to everyone and your "private" family life will never be the same again.
Seriously? I use Facebook as a way to communicate with MY family. My whole side of the family is on Facebook. I live over 2,000 miles away from my mom and my dad and my brothers. How else am I gonna update them on the comings and goings of my life? It's free. I use the phone too. But you can't post pictures on the phone. Well at least not on my phone. I have a dinosaur cell phone--LOL. I don't post everything on Facebook. I never get that private. But I occasionally post a family picture so my family can see what I look like.
*sigh* I have heard others also take offense at Facebook. I have heard other negative remarks about Facebook too. I use my time wisely on Facebook. I don't squander my time playing Facebook games all day. Even if I did, that would be my purgative anyway wouldn't it?
I think my FIL is mistaken. Just because the whole gang picture of us is on Facebook doesn't mean EVERYONE can see it. Only friends can see my pictures. And I can block people on Facebook too if I think they are acting weird. Facebook is an excellent communication tool for my family. Don't knock it. You haven't even tried it--father-in-law. I hate to see what he thinks about people who blog.
If you don't understand something, learn more about it. Don't knock it until you have tried it, have an open mind for pete's sake.
So that's my rant on Facebook and my father in law. I'm still not home yet. I think we are being driven home this afternoon. (I don't have a working car yet. So I have to rely on the kindness of family.) I'll be back to my home where I can post anything I want without negative Facebook remarks soon. Hopefully.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Yikes! Christmas is right around the corner! EEK! Are YOU ready yet?
|My family picture. Don't STEAL it. That's just WRONG.|
Pay my instead for posting my pic elsewhere. OK?
