PSA Regarding Missing Person Reports: Please check posts before you share! 99% of the "It Takes Only Seconds to Share" missing person reports I see shared on Facebook (especially for the very young children) have already been found (often LONG) before the post has been shared. While it takes only seconds to share, it also takes only seconds to click on the report to check for updates! Most missing person reports are updated once the person is found. There is usually an "UPDATE" at the very top of the article and often the title has even been changed to say, "FOUND," but for reasons I can't understand, Facebook's shared link somehow never reflects those changes. If you see them and...

Conversational ADD: What YOU Need to Know!

It’s one of the most pervasive and dangerous habits in America today and it's destroying your relationships! You see it all the time, but you probably never thought much about it. It's, unfortunately, at work in oral, face-to-face conversations and written exchanges over social media, text and email.  I call it Conversational ADD.  Here are a few examples:  Mary posts on Facebook asking for help for problem X only to have Jane give her solutions for problem B.  Jane didn't read Mary's entire post and assumed she knew what it was about. After the confusing exchange gets heated, Jane unfriend's Mary after six years of treasured friendship.  Tom emails a company to report some problems with his product (or service) and receives...

Facebook: Connection Now Takes a Bit of Effort

I posted this on my Facebook wall recently, but thought I'd share it here as well and expand on my original post because so many using Facebook to connect these days are frustrated and confused.

Facebook Pet Peeves

Is anyone else getting a bit frustrated with Facebook?  Seems a lot of rules that limit socialization for a social media network.  Facebook says it's trying to protect its users by ridding itself of anything that might possibly resemble SPAM.  But it is taking the social right out of social media, don't you think?  1. You can't have more than 5000 friends. What if I'm popular? LOL  I recently had a discussion with someone on Facebook who said that anyone who believes you can have that many friends doesn't understand what the word means.  I don't believe Facebook is for people who are such good friends they'd do anything for each other.  If Facebook were just for very close friends,...
