Okay, I know many of you love Facebook.
And I’ve tried, I really have. But Facebook and I… we’ll, we just don’t understand each other.
As an example of our incompatibility, I offer this recent true story:
Several weeks ago I tried again to make Facebook my own. I sat down with my cup of tea and worked on updating my profile. I thought I’d add some photos and connect my profile to my husband’s– stuff many of you do without even a second thought.
So I click on Married, and it gave me the option to link to any of my friends, and I type S-A– and there, Sam pops up. Hooray. I think I’m clicking on Sam. I hit save, and it suddenly says I’m now married to my friend Sandra, and Facebook will just have to confirm this with Sandra…
Eek. So I try to unclick Sandra, to no avail. It turns out I have change my marital status to Single in order to fix the error… and then I went back through the whole thing again to marry Sam. And then it told all my friends that I had changed my marital status to single, and then back to married.
Hence, a flurry of concerned calls to the house to ask what had happened here.
Facebook is not my friend.
