FACEBOOK AND FRIENDS
I have been a little bit more active on FB this time around. I read it every day or so and post occasionally. It is a big source of info for my Rodan & Fields consulting and I run across stuff posted by my kids now and again. There are also things posted by some of the high school contingent which I don't enjoy and have "unfriended" some of the right wing political posters and I'm a bit tired of the posts of grandchildren, random nostalgia from the 60's and 70's and religious stuff. I think I need to do another "friend" purge.
Do other people do this, too? Or do you just accept all the friend requests and go along with whatever is posted? Does it make me intolerant that I am not interested in wading through religious tracts while scrolling through FB?
And what about the girlfriend who broke up with my darling son, broke his heart and is now posting photos of herself with other guys (while still living in his apartment)? Yeah. She got unfriended today. I managed to stay sweet to her for 3 months and now I am done with knowing what she is up to.
On the other hand, this month I learned about 2 of my old friends who are retiring, saw my daughter all dolled up wearing a hat at the race track and got to congratulate another friend for getting her long worked for license to practice as a psychologist. So there is still a lot of value in hanging around on FB.
