Meanwhile, In Trump’s America. . .

A female friend of mine got the above message on Facebook from this woman, Arlene Brock, whom my friend didn’t know. She posted it because she thought it was funny. She said she didn’t even know who Chris Barker is, she’s added a lot of people over the years. And she looked at the man’s…

Unfriended?!?

Last night I went to check on a friend’s Facebook page and discovered that we are no longer friends. I did not unfriend her, so that means that she unfriended me. This isn’t the first time that this has happened, people have suddenly unfriended me, and I’ve unfriended many people. Except usually I don’t just…

Online Friends vs. Real Friends

As I come upon my 7th year on Facebook (signed up in August 2007), & 12th year online overall (I got my first PC in 2002) I’m reflecting on the concept of online friendships. A lot of people used to say, and still do, that all of these connections people make online are stupid, pointless,…

GOOGLE PLUS IS STILL A GHOST TOWN

The last time I wrote about Google Plus, and how I rarely use it, I ended it by saying: But, again, it’s still the almighty Google, so who knows? By this time next year I could be off FB altogether and spending all my time on G+. I guess we’ll see. Well, here I am,…

BLAH BLAH BLAH

Another day, another dollar. I woke up around 5:45am, with a bit of a kink in my neck, not too bad, but noticeable. Didn’t finally go away until around 2pm. One of the first things I did was get online to pay my Chase Visa credit card bill, and I noticed that my credit limit…

GOOGLE PLUS

Last month I deleted my Google+ profile. Then a few weeks ago, when I started blogging regularly again, I decided to re-open it, just because I figured it couldn’t hurt to have one more place online to post links to my blogs, in addition to my Facebook and Twitter pages. So that’s all that I’m…

THE FACEBOOK EFFECT by David Kirkpatrick

I bought this book on my Amazon Kindle a few weeks ago, and have been reading it in my spare time. It’s a fascinating story that is much more balanced then the book which the movie The Social Network was based on. Far from the villain/asshole that that film made him out to be, we…

THE SOCIAL NETWORK/DEFENDING MARK ZUCKERBERG

I just watched this movie for the 2nd time, and my first impression isn’t changed. It’s extremely unfair to Mark Zuckerberg. Now, I’m not talking about the allegations of him stealing the idea of Facebook from others, or cheating his former best friend out of the company, because I wasn’t there and, hey, there’s two…

I DELETED MY MYSPACE ACCOUNT

Yep, it’s all over. I signed up in August 2005. There was a time when I was a full-on Myspace addict. I was on all the time. First thing in the morning, after waking up, would be to check my Myspace page. I actually like getting to know new people, finding out about them and…

TWITTER ME SOFTLY

It’s interesting how quickly technology changes today. I’ve talked about how it’s odd to think that there are teenagers today who’ve never bought an actual music CD, all of their music as been downloaded (legally or otherwise) from online. There are kids today who’ve never experienced dial-up, they’ve always had DSL or broadband. The internet…
