You can now find me on Facebook and link up if you wish. Why, I do not know. I’m Gerry Fromvalpo. If you're interested. But don't expect any tweets or twats or whatever those are.
After clicking around for a few hours Facebook doesn’t appear to have much flexibility for visual personalization besides adding personal information in the form of text such as age, sex, political affiliation, religion, etc.. Sure, it allows photo uploads but I can upload my illustrated stories right here or at photobucket or many other photo sharing options out there.
As far as I can tell Facebook is nothing but a way to show the world how many online ‘friends’ one can attract and connect with as if it is some form of popularity contest. Not for me. I will keep the page open for those out there who want another online friend to notch on the old bed post.
Beyond that it serves no useful purpose for me as far as I can tell. I’ll keep trying to figure it out for a few hours but won't waste too much of my free time with it. Maybe I AM too old and curmudgeonly to be connected online more than I already am. I’ll just hunker here in the country bunker. Please pass me another beer while I think about it.
Question: Why is it...every time a new online fad starts up...I am told I need to be a part of it?....Cmon, man....Funk ‘dat.
