Friday Facebook Funnies...

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with John Henry Masterworks Design International, Inc.

I recently received a few requests to Friend some great folks here on AR.  Dutifully, once I started doing that, another dozen or more recognized names came up and so I added those people too.  

Now, I just would like all of you on FB to know that this is not my strong point.  I apologize in advance if I do not look at your updates, listings, family and friends, food pics and assorted memes... on a daily basis.  I can barely get a few things done that absolutely must be done on a daily basis.  
I realized I would get into trouble halfway through the process of Friending all the Friends and Friendly names and faces.  And you all ARE my friends... on AR.  Again, I am not a FB type of guy.  My son posts all the times we get together with the grandkids, and that is fine.  I don't post pictures of food btw...

Unfortunately, a few years ago, I opened a business page on FB and every time I post a business-related message it goes to all my personal Friends' addresses, etc.  I cannot figure out how to separate the two so now I want to apologize in advance if you get these wanton self-serving posts in your inbox or whatever it's called.

I don't understand status updates either. It really sounds important but someone is simply changing a photo out or whatever...

In any case, thanks to all who automatically sent me their Friend request and now I have about 835,629 Friends of yours to decide who they are and if I should Friend them too.  Life is very complicated and really we should simplify a few things to get through our day.

So, once again, THANKS for Friending me and I do appreciate that privilege.  I am not a regular FB type of person and am wondering what's going to happen now that I have so many Friends!!!!  And if I don't Friend you right away, I am hiding in the closet 'cause I am scared about what is going to happen next...

Hi John Henry

I echo your sentiments fully! I have a business page and personal page but I only visit those occasionally.  My husband monitors them for me but he won't accept friend requests because he says that is up to me.

Too funny, I wonder why the rat wants people to like him on Facebook after he passes away though, haha.

Good afternoon John Henry - I had to admit also that I have both FB pages but don't spend a lot of time on them.

John, I keep my Facebook pretty neutral.  Flowers, pets, honeybees, maybe a travel shot if I FINALLY leave town for a bit, but not much else.  There are sufficient numbers of folks in the political arena that they can survive without me, and if I am traveling, all quiet until I'm back home because I don't want anyone knowing my home is minimally attended.

Hi John - I did get your "invitation" yesterday, but won't be surprised if we don't connect there often. I like FB for staying in touch with relatives and old friends in different parts of the country--nicer than a stilted once a year Christmas letter.

Hi John - thanks for accepting my FB request although I can't recall if I actually extended an invitation or vice versa.  Oh, well.  I don't know why but I am feeling like the theme from "The Golden Girls" should be accompanying this post.  Okay, that's such a Rose thing to say.

Morning John.

The only time I use FB is when I post my link to my blogs from the Rain.  Great minds, right...

Hi John- I love this because I'm terrible when it comes to Facebook. What I love about it is seeing the photos from friends but I looked at my stats and I may average 5 minutes a day on it. That leaves very little time to try to reciprocate with everyone. We found out that Larry's nephew and his wife were expecting when they posted the Ultrasound!!! And I kept seeing the same young man in my little cousin's Facebook posts and discovered that was her future husband.

Those are pretty funny, John. Facebook is great for a laugh in a lot of ways! It CAN be a challenge to keep up with it all, and keep it straight!!

Hi John... I'd seen some of these previously, but they were fun to see again. And I also enjoyed seeing some new ones.

This is making me laugh...it sums up how many of us feel about FB and Social Media in general. Can't live with it, maybe we can live without it? Lol

I don't usually send friend requests on fb and I only accept them if I can confirm from a source other than fb that the friend request is actually the person. I've received too many fake ones to take any chances.

Good morning John Henry ,

I'm so glad that Kathy Streib featured your post on her "Ah-ha" moments for the week! Absolutely loved it!  I have both pages but just don't have much time to interact with a hospice patient at home. Hard enough to get posts up for AR! Have a great Sunday!

I am truly clueless about how to navigate Facebook - and the truth is that I don't care.

John Henry - OMG! I don't know how to separate the two and I don't have time for FB either. Every now and then, I may get on FB but quite frankly, I don't understand why it's necessary and to me, time is everything! Therefore, if you don't hear from me, don't take it personally!
