Dads and Things Blog Postings

It is hoped that this running inventory of notifications posted to the FB page Dads & Things : Blog Postings will help to overcome the problems that FB appears to have in keeping friends of fathers, of families and of men informed of notifications by Dads & Things that go missing on Facebook. (See also Note 1) This web page serves to keep track of the notifications were posted to a FB page that serves to inform friends of fathers, families and men of any postings that were made and of other items that were thought will be of special interest to them and therefore worth sharing.

Humane Society for the Unborn

Updated 2019 02 17: Appended Addendum We are obsessed with pets to the point of worshipping them, but humane societies for the unborn are virtually unheard of. If we have gotten to the point in our desperate culture in which we feel obligated to kill children, regardless of why or of what color, then we do not deserve to survive and probably won’t. — William Faulkner I don’t know when William Faulkner (September 25, 1897 – July 6, 1962) stated that, but it was before our society became obsessed with legalizing the killing of children at all stages of their development, or else he would quite possibly have stated “regardless of … Continue reading

Most of my FB friends must have died : perhaps I did

Most of my FB friends must have died, or perhaps I did.  Sometimes I ask myself why I don’t get many reactions to anything I state on FB, and I wonder (but only for a fleeting moment): “Why don’t I get as many responses as I got when I had only a small fraction of the large number of FB friends I have now?” Do you ever wonder about that curious fact, that the more FB friends you have, and the longer you have had them, the less you see of them?

Facebook Shenanigans – The cup runneth over

Updated 2019 02 04: Made an update that provides a little more information on FB shadow banning. Facebook shadow-banning If you wonder what shadow-banning is all about, this explains it, but it does not seem that switching to different social media is necessarily a remedy.  There is no remedy. I am being shadow-banned by Facebook.  I just found another couple of instances and won’t even bother to look for more.  Right, I know what I will be doing about it, but I am sorry for having wasted far too much time on Facebook, and that hurts the most. It is hard to tell – and not worth making a detailed … Continue reading
