Daily Prompt; Freedom of Facebook

Facebook has recently come under attack for failing to enforce
its own guidelines on hate speech and violent imagery. Is it a website’s
job to moderate the content users post, or should users have freedom to
say what they want? Is there a happy medium? If so, how would you
structure it?

When I was a new baby on Facebook, it seemed a pretty cool place. I was able to catch up with lost friends through the years. I could chat without making long distance phone calls.

I was able to fill up my friends on FB pretty quick. I loved it. Each night I was able to sit back and relax, drink my diet coke and chat a way. Soon friends of mine were letting their friends see what I was saying.

FB adjusted some privacy issues and all was well again for a while. Then people I didn’t know started making comments. I blocked some because I don’t like swear words or nudity on my own page. That worked for some time.

But as time went by so many changes were made to Facebook. It grew by leaps and bounds. I think it was way bigger than Mark ever thought it was going to be. It seemed when I tried to make my pages more secure, it became less secure.

Now anyone seems to be able to comment on other friend’s sites. And those friends were friends of mine in the very beginning. I now use my FB for Finding Solutions, which turned into a place to place my stories from WP.

So as far as improvement, not going to  happen. I see naughty words, almost naked people, drunks or sayings letting young adults believe drinking is cool. I see people who believe in God. People who hate God are on there.

And let me tell you that the number one hater thing I see on my pages is the President. I always find it odd that the US voted him in, and now those same are complaining daily. why did they vote him in if they were going to cut him down? We can’t have our cake and icing both you know.

Kiss My ___!

I have seen it all

Over Facebook pages

Funny sayings about

Our Mother Nature

But as I sit here

Looking outside

Seeing huge snowflakes

Falling gently down

I have to admit to myself

I too, am sick of winter

It is beautiful this I know

But for heaven’s sake it’s Spring

We should have had this

Back in December

When our Christmas Day

Was green with grass

So now my white stuff listen to me

Get out of here and kiss my ___!

Bring us green once again.

Help Me Celebrate!

Today WordPress let me know that I have been with their company for one year. I didn’t actually make my first post until March 6th I believe, I was scared.

In one year I have made more friends than I ever dreamed I could. I have read wonderful and funny and sad stories. I have spoken to a few of my friends over the phone. I have sent and received gifts from bloggers.

One of the biggest days I will forever remember is the days before my brother’s birthday. I sent out an open invitation for you to send him a birthday card or well wishes. You did more than I even thought. Cards, and gifts, phone calls and even writing messages on the Facebook page I made him. I still have that page by the way and his birthday will be coming up in May so I will probably ask for your help once again.

He and I are only one year and a couple of weeks different in ages. His birthday is May 3 and mine is April 21.

I have been so blessed by all of you. I don’t know how I made it before coming to blogging world. It has helped me heal, see things in a different light. I have had helpful advice. Instead of googling something first off, I usually come here for advice first. You have laughed with me and cried and listened to my whining. You have lifted me from sorrow and helped me to cling to my faith.

In this one year I have these stats.


I know that you already know that I have over 1000 likes now.


My best day of views was 651

I am now on Twitter; tweetme1954
