Need A Laugh? READ THIS POST About Facebook!!!

Yesterday's 'Comment to Share' on Lynda Dunn Hester's Facebook page:

Facebook is a marvelous addition to our lives, but I am concerned about a few of my 'friends' who seem to have been infected with Facebookitis. As Groucho Markz so famously put it when introduced to the lady who had 12 children, 'Lady......, I love my cigar, but I take it out sometimes..."

 Best comment was from an old friend, 'J'.... 

(This was too funny and clever not to share with my Active Rain friends.)

Amen, Lynda! I check FB most days, but I am tempted to take some "friends" off, because they seem to think we all want to know what they had for breakfast, the weather, "it's a wonderful day", etc. continuously. I would settle for a little info and even a lot of humor from friends, but I don't want to erase some good people from my friends list and hurt their feelings. Suffice it to say, I hope breakfast and the weather is just super for everyone, and certainly for the rest of my life, I hope everyone has a good day!

Dear 'J',

 As always, you make me laugh!
Guess what....! You can 'hide' people and they'll never know it. If you 'hide' their posts, you won't hurt their feelings AND you will never again have to be exposed to whether or not they are on the way to the gym. I currently have 13 who are hidden. Let me say that not a single one of these who are hidden are anyone I have ever met in person. They are mostly 'friends of friends' whose invitations I accepted when I first got started. I should have realised that if they had nothing better to do than to invite someone they didn't really know to be their 'friend', then they might be suffering from a serious case of Facebookitis.  If you need instructions on how to 'hide' posts, let me know!  

Dear Lynda,

Good info! Great to talk to you. I'm on the way to lunch. Maybe I'll have a salad. It's sunny, but overcast. I could not find my favorite sock this morning. I love my wife. We are planning a trip to Home Depot. Business is still slow. The kids are great. The grandkids are great. That about covers it for this hour.


I really am laughing out loud and I'm working at home alone!!!!!!

Do you use Active Rain?  I'm taking your comments, adding mine and using it for a blog about what not to do on FaceBook. 
Make today a great day after you get back from the gym and be sure to let me know how you enjoyed your lunch and if you showed property anytime this morning after you got back from your doctor's appointment.  Also, please update me on all 6 of your contracts and how close each is to closing  when you finish putting aloe on the sunburn you got at the beach this weekend.
As always,

Ok, I did laugh!  I figured out how to unhide people as well, just yesterday.  Sometimes people just need a break from the 4 to 8 times a day updates.  I love facebook, I catch and release those comments that sometimes appear 5 at a time!

Lynda - You are hysterical!!!   I absolutely agree!   I am sooooo tired of listening to people send out virtual hugs, pets, flowers, drinks, etc., etc., etc.  Why? Why? Why?  What's the point?

Let me know if you're bored. I'll be happy to tell you about my trip to Home Depot this afternoon. Oh, and it really does look like it's gonna rain!

Thanks for the reminder, I have a few people that I need to hide- whenever I open up my home page on facebook all I see is them.  I think I may know more about their life than their own family due to the constant updates.
