So, as you all know, because I’ve said it a lot and you all have photographic memories, I have like 200 blogs and other sites on my feed reader. Recently, like within days of each other, every one of them seemed to have a post saying, “We have a Facebook page! Be a fan!” Because I’m smart, S-M-R-T, it began to dawn on me that this is some kind of newfangled trend. I’m just that observant! Now, as I’ve told the 101 people who have sent me e-mails about being their Facebook friend, I’m not on Facebook, as it entails giving up your identity and we all remember I hate this. Also all the poking and whatever. I was one of those people happy to graduate all schools I attended and never go back. But this is different! It’s a page for my page! Which is SO necessary. Websites should always be advertised by other websites, right? Right?

No, I have no idea what it’s for either. I don’t know anything about Facebook. I had to send five e-mails back and forth with tech support just to set it up. So basically, I didn’t know how to set it up, I don’t know if I did it right, I have no idea what it’s for, and I’m not really sure why I even spent the time.

Oh right, because every one else was doing it. I guess I am still in high school.

So if you’re one of those 101 people who wanted me to swell their friends list, why, just be a fan instead. Be the first! Two through one hundred are also fun.

    I don’t know what Facebook is.
    I don’t want to know what Facebook is.
    I shouldn’t even be here right now.

    I didn’t give my real name.

    Don’t hate me because I didn’t look yet.

    I think I’m still traumatized by “slam books” and when I get over that, in another 50 years or so, I’ll venture into another experiences involving the making of pages upon which all and sundry are invited to comment upon my person.

    Oh, yeah.

    Yeah! I’m #2!

    Oh my gosh, I have two fans! Thank you!

    JF, I like the alternative identity. And you look like such a good citizen in your picture. I signed up as Becca M. Jewball. We’ll see if I use it.

    Sarp, I already have that! It’s this. I just erase the nasty comments.

  6. JF says:

    Nice way to know your readers ! but probably you already know them from real life..

    I will fool around with this tonight and see if I can figure out how to get a Facebook page for the movie review site.

    And then my website will POKE your website, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    Bwahaha! Haha! Hahahahaha.

  8. Becca says:

    JF, so far it’s mixed! But I’m looking forward to seeing more of people than their IP addresses. It’s going to be interesting, I hope.

    Maureen, just don’t ask me for help. And fan sites can’t poke or be poked, so ha. Ahahaha. Aha.

    Something is missing from the title of this post, but I just can’t put my finger on it…

    Good for you for starting a fan page for your blog. Others of us should follow suit. But some of us aren’t industrious enough. Glad to be a fan of the ‘ball!

    Thank you and thanks to everyone who joined (or whatever you call it)!
