Random Tuesday

Facebook - has anyone noticed that Facebook has suddenly included "likes" as part of your feed? I'm not just talking about groups/companies you like but "likes" of your friends posts. Friends you don't even know. It gets really odd when an acquaintance you know from 15 years ago likes a post for a total stranger to you who just got a brand new red canoe and can't wait to try it out. Why are "likes" appearing in my feed? It should just be updates from people I'm actually friends with!

Speaking of Facebook frustration, I came across this great image on Dave Lowe's cartoon site (just in time for Halloween):

In other news, Charlotte has discovered Netflix on my iPhone and she's figured out how to access her favorite cartoons, Shawn the Sheep and Invader Zim. This means demands for my phone will be relentless. For the record, I've never shown her how to use Netflix!

Have a great Tuesday!

Mixing kids with technology results in some amazing and scary stuff!

I'm not a big fan of the new facebook changes either.

Have a good day!

I'm reaaaaalllly not liking the new Facebook changes, either. And that cartoon is perfect! :)

Your phone, as you know it, is no longer 'your' phone...take it from me, Princess Nagger 'steals' mine All. The. Time. And tries to convince me that getting her her own phone would be a good idea...not! :)

Facebook was dropped on its head, I think. Oh the crazies they are pulling on us! I like the old way better. I'm of the philosophy, if it's not broken don't fix it. Too bad FB doesn't share my philosophy, huh?

Randoming up with ya!

Can't say I'm thrilled with the Facebook changes. I don't go there as often anymore.

Shawn the Sheep is awesome!!! My daughter used to watch it too.

Facebook has gotten beyond ridiculous with all the likes and excessive feeds. Drives me squirrelly and takes me longer to get my stuff done now because I am bypassing all this crap...They never should have "fixed" it. I wasn't broken..

I don't think anyone really likes the Facebook changes. Smartphones.... what did we ever do without them?
