I can’t say that my impression of Facebook has changed very much in the weeks following my account creation. I find navigating the security settings to be an exercise in anger management. I used to consider myself a bit of an expert when it comes to user interface navigation. Not anymore! Facebook has bested me more than once… to the point that I had to actually ask someone for help before I decided to call it a day and delete my account! But I think that I have it sufficiently locked down now.
So last night I decided to add some pictures. Honestly, it isn’t so much for anyone else, as it is for me. I’m always leery of losing pictures due to hardware failures, and lost backups. I know that there are a chunk of pictures of the kids that are gone forever, and I don’t ever want to see that happen again. So an online storage option probably isn’t a bad idea. I had considered Flickr, but I would have to create an account there, and figured that I have this shiny new Facebook account now… might as well use it.
Some people continue to send me messages from within Facebook. I hope that it’s nothing urgent because it’s probably the last place that I am going to check for correspondence. Better to send a smoke signal or carrier pigeon.
And I just love all the “You might know THIS person” notifications that I get… Umm… no, I don’t know that person. Thanks though.
Just wait until I try Farmville!
