Will Ello Kill Facebook, or Is It Just a Lot of Hype?

I joined Ello because everyone else was joining Ello. (And yes, if all the kids jumped off the bridge, I would jump off the bridge, too!) And now we're all milling about at Ello, and it feels like the awkward start of a party. You know what I'm talking about? That moment when you first get there, when the hostess is still running around, cleaning up by tucking her clothes underneath her blanket. It's that moment before all the other people arrive, and you're just sort of standing about, making small talk with people while you wait for everything to... begin. Except... what if this is it? What if this is Ello? What if this social media party turns out to be a dud because the hosts didn't count on the mass Exodus from Facebook this week when Facebook stuck to their "you need to use your real name" guns that brought everyone over Ello's threshold? Or what if it turns into a social media revolution that forces the larger sites to change the way they interact with users? ...more

Why Is It OK to Blast Religion Via TV & Facebook

I have always been interested in true crime and investigative stories, and was happy to see that ID had been added to the local channel lineup.  However, ID has quickly proven through its treatment of their Deadly Devotion series that they really don't 'investigate' at all, and their 'research' is biased for the sake of drama.  They use only whatever shallow information and whichever biased interviewees will give them the most venom.  And some of the scenes are literally staged for drama the way someone would stage a play in a dark theater.  How silly. ...more

Facebook and Tomato Sandwiches

I invited myself to lunch yesterday with a couple of dear friends.It started when one of the girls posted a picture on social media of her gloriously ripening backyard tomatoes and the rest just took care of itself. It seems that we all have a fondness for fresh tomato sandwiches on challah, made with just a hint of mayonnaise, basil, and some wonderful cheese. (Lactose free, of course.) My mouth is still in saliva overdrive....more

Comparison Is The Thief Of Joy

I recently saw this quote on Pinterest and I love it! It is quickly becoming one of my favorite quotes of all time in fact. Over the years I've gotten a lot better at not comparing myself to others. Although there are still the occasional days I even have to stop myself from comparing when I'm on Instagram, Pinterest, or even working on this blog....more

Thank You, Facebook, for Keeping Me Connected from the Middle of Nowhere

I had a hard time making friends here. I just couldn't find women my age who weren't already plugged into their groups of friends. I didn't really try very hard. I stayed connected to old friends with email. I redecorated our house. I bought a lot of yarn. I started volunteering. And one day, I found Facebook. ...more

Facebook Forces Mobile Users to Download Messenger App to Access Facebook Messages

Facebook announced today that you'll need to download a second app in order to access Facebook messages from your smartphone. This is both for your benefit -- faster app speed for their main app since it won't be weighed down by messages -- but moreso Facebook's benefit: why use any other messaging app when you need to download Facebook's regardless if you want to access that Facebook feature? It's like colonizing your phone, one app at a time. ...more
