FaceBook Frazzle

I don’t spend a lot of time of FaceBook though I like following what people are doing, admire the successes, and share the griefs. There are occasions, however, when it drives me nuts …


there’s a pattern                    
to FaceBook that
I lose somewhere
around the third
news item from
a friend
…………I grab
the message   click
‘like’ then add
a comment   get side-
tracked by a ‘share’

can’t find my way
to contribute what
it is that’s on
my mind except to
add a photo four
sizes too big because
I’ve no idea how to
make them smaller
which makes me
just another klutz
beleaguered by
sudden messages
instant ads
who is trying to friend
the friend
of a friend
who knows a friend …

    So funny and just; reminds me of learning this new stuff and being very frustrated. I get help from Bill who is better at this than I am as he uses computers at work much more often than I do now. Find a kid who could help with Facebook.
