No, I am not one of those old people who is against everything invented in the last 20 years. Nor am I a person who spends the typical 2 hours a day clicking through my social media accounts. I am a user but only to a very limited degree. But, maybe even that is going to change. I certainly understand the importance of having instant … Continue reading Giving Up Social Media?
Loneliness is something I feel I am an authority on, at least as a layman. There are several reasons for that, some of which I will get into later. The topic of loneliness was brought to my attention again by the CBS Sunday Morning show I just watched. It said that almost half of us feel lonely much of the time, and as the quote … Continue reading About Loneliness
I suspect some of my readers remember that I have been having a battle with FaceBook. When I log in I get this long list of “Friend Recommendations” that are mostly very scantily clad young females with strange names. I used to “X” them out but that did no good, they would be back the next time I logged in. I was considering just dropping … Continue reading My Battle With FaceBook
Ok, I admit that I have been retired from the workforce for almost two decades now, so aside from what I read I am pretty much ignorant of it. When I left the workforce the mantra was “Do more with less”. Many of my coworkers were being laid off and I was told that I had to do their jobs in addition to my own. … Continue reading Explaining Our Times…
Thank you to my Facebook friend Idealist for giving me the exact word for how I feel about today’s political environment. Continue reading I’m Exhaustipated…
Maybe I should explain the title some more before I continue with the post. Yes, because of my Aspie traits and my isolation as a deaf senior citizen I don’t have as many friends as I had when I was in the corporate world. That is a fact that can’t be denied but it is not the point of this post. The point I am … Continue reading I Don’t Have Many Friends — By Choice..

I just love this Facebook entry on my friend’s page. It says it all on what being an American should be about. You can do your thing but don’t try to prevent me from doing mine. Diversity…… Continue reading About Being American
All CEOs including Facebooks’ Mark Zukerberg are paid the big bucks to be dreamers. They all have to have a vision of where their company dominates all the competition in the years ahead. Of course there are only a meager few who actually get it right. The rest take their millions and walk away and another dreamer takes over. I think Zuck really understands that … Continue reading Facebook in 2030? 5 billion users, says Zuck
What the world needs now is love, sweet love It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of What the world needs now is love, sweet love No, not just for some but for everyone I love the song lyrics above. They give me hope that someday, probably in the very distant future the world will turn to love but we got a long … Continue reading What The World Needs Now Is a Lot Less Spite….
Recently someone requested that I be his new “friend” on Facebook. I’m not sure I even know him but I think he is a sibling of one of my high school classmates. One thing that Facebook is good at is to give you a long lists of “friends of your friends” to entice to add more. I guess they get more revenue that way but I don’t know … Continue reading Fifty Years From Now…
After yesterday’s post about people resisting change and not adopting the latest technology I thought I would take the opposite route today. Today I am going to talk about Facebook by giving you a view of my personal habits there. How is that for yin/yang?? Unlike so many, I have not made it a life’s goal to grow my “friends” list to any gargantuan level. Some I follow there have … Continue reading About Me & FaceBook….
An important part of my daily read is the Will Rogers Facebook page as shown above. It, along with the half-dozen books about him on my bookshelf give me a lifetime of material for this blog at RJsCorner. Will inspires me for his wit, wisdom, and humor. But maybe even more so for his endurance as he put out thousands of “posts” of his … Continue reading Writing My Material….
Got to show you this one from my Facebook link. LOL Continue reading If Men Could Get Pregnant….
Source: Facebook isn’t free – USATODAY.com. The best way I’ve ever heard Facebook’s business model described is simple: “If you’re not paying for it, you’re not the customer; you’re the product being sold.” What makes Facebook so valuable is that you, your friends, and everyone else who uses the site are sitting ducks for marketers out to exploit your information to sell you things. This article … Continue reading If You’re Not Paying For It……..
There has been a lot of press lately about how Facebook was used during the Egyptian protests lately. Showing its affect on democratic reform definitely put a positive spin on this social network. But then I go to my Facebook homepage and I see something entirely different. There are no great social causes being espoused there. Of the 50 or so “friends” I have there … Continue reading The Thing about Facebook…
