As you may recall, "Facebook" is in the news; as if you could be allowed to forget.
So the following might be of interest. It comes from the UK quarterly magazine "Evergreen"
I'm told it's also out there on the Internet, but here goes.
"For those of my generation who do not, and cannot, comprehend why Facebook exists.
" I am trying to make friends outside Facebook, while applying the same principles. Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom.
I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.
I also listen to their conversations, and give them the "thumbs up" and tell them I "like" them. It works just like Facebook!
I already have four people following me: two police officers, a private investigator and a psychiatrist."
I think it's very clever and funny.
Especially as I don't use Facebook and never will.
