Lazy Typers Need More Than a "Like" Button on Facebook

Originally like meant "resembling," or, as a verb, "to take pleasure in." Then it morphed into a kind of verbal hiccup, a place holder while the mind caught up with the runaway tongue: "And I said to her, like, who do you think you are?" Then Facebook came along, and "like" went, like, viral. It got a new opposite, "unlike," and an imperative, as in "like my page!" I'm okay with being told to "love me, love my dog," or even better, "love my dog, love me." But can I really be commanded to like a Facebook page? ...more

Why I Started Blogging

Please Ask Before You Post Someone's Image on Facebook

Over the weekend, I posted about asking people not to post my child's picture on Facebook.  Carolyn Hax had given some pretty weak advice to a set of expectant parents that amounted to "your kid's picture is going to end up online anyway, so this isn't a battle worth having." ...more

When Someone Blocks You on Facebook it's the Final 'F' You

Once upon a time someone pissed me off or hurt my feelings which I think are the same emotion but being and saying you're pissed off is easier to admit and deal with than hurt feelings. Anyway, I deleted said person from my facebook. Take that! They countered with a facebook block. Ouch! Now I can't even spy on them. Shit....more

Facebook was Turning Me into My Mother - and Not in a Good Way

So we have a deal now, unvoiced, but I'm honoring it. I don't post anything that could humiliate her in school or out (including when we have a fight), and I never, not ever post a picture without her approval of the picture. She's let a few go by - some of them even blatantly silly. But I know she appreciates that I ask, so I think she throws me a bone sometimes and approves a few here and there. Anytime I'm the least bit tempted to cross the line, I try to remember being a twelve year old girl, sitting on a church pew, as the congregation asks God to bless my bowels. ...more
