Now on facebook

A little more than two years ago (about Nov. 2008) I joined facebook.

Until a few days ago, I did not make much use of it.  Facebook felt uncomfortable because, once anything is posted there, it often seems impossible to make corrections.  What bothers me most about using the features of facebook is that it is not always obvious how something that one enters there will be displayed and that, if things turn out differently than expected, corrections or required edits cannot be made anymore to change something into becoming more appealing.

Well, so what?  I will just have to learn to think things through a bit more before I post them; perhaps not quite like putting one’s brain into gear before putting the mouth into motion but maybe — to put it more aptly — to learn by trial and error.

A few days ago one of my daughters convinced me that faccebook is a practical tool for staying in touch.  After a few days of making more use of facebook and exploring its features, I must say that she is right.

I should have made more use of facebook much sooner.   Now I want to try and figure out if it is practical to show facebook items as links in a blog entry.  Here goes:

And here is another one:
