Facebook - Is it just me?

I just don't understand Facebook.  I've tried, honest.

Don't get me wrong, I understand that it appeals to people as a way to keep in touch, share photos etc etc etc - I just don't understand how it works.

Not entirely sure how to post messages - which ones are private and which ones I am announcing to the world.
I thanked someone yesterday for the birthday wishes they sent to me and apparently they 'liked' that - which is nice, but I still don't get it.

My very dear friend*, who lives overseas and communicates with me entirely by email and dreams (another story), has tried, with infinite patience, to explain it all to me.

But I still don't get it.

That said, my bestest ever Aunt just contacted me via Facebook and we haven't been in touch for many, many years.
That I get   :-)

*(She has a blog - it's lucid and funny and she totally gets Facebook, Blogging etc etc


  1. That's so cool about your Aunt, and it's all you need to 'get' about FB. Now remember, messages are private, comments and wall posts etc are not :) Am I lucid?? That's good, right? Thanks hun xxxx

  2. See what I mean? Infinitely patient :)
