As far as I can tell, they are vehicles for the teenager, and adults with
age of teenagers, to show off to their friends. The stimulation for such
seems to be similar to those who walk along a street past a baker's shop and
then make a phone call to say that they are now passing a baker's shop.
In any case, beware, because neither organisation os covered by Brit data
Actually my own problem is that customers I am supporting almost have to have a
presence on both these days and so I have to at least understand how they can be
used. Some are getting quite sophisticated and I need to pick up their posts
just so I can follow off-line discussions, which was the main drive.
But in 24 hours I've found just how BAD Facebook is! I live in Broadway,
Worcestershire but do you think it will let me add that? There is a Broadway,
Gloucestershire but I refuse to use that. Many of the other locations I need to
add are coming up with 'acceptable' links which are obviously wrong or nothing
at all so I've simply had to leave them off.
For those of you who do use Facebook ... Why can't we have 'associates' - people
that we do know, but don't want to 'follow'. This is the area that my customers
are now finding a major aggravation. There is a level of filtering but it's
still all or nothing in key areas :( There are some groups for CNC and Model
Engineering, but I don't believe they have the tools to replace lists like this!
ISTR from a bellringers' jaunt (NEVER campanologists to the cognoscenti!)
that Broadway has a much older village centre up on the hill, where remains
the ancient church, and that when the turnpike was built through the valley,
that the village moved down the hill in order to get the passing trade?
The ancient church continues to have one service per year, so has not
been declared redundant?
The rationale for Facebook seems to be to expose your information to
other users, collect potential marketing information about people and to
sell it on to other organisations. As I understand it, nothing added to
Facebook is ever deleted, and they keep quietly altering their terms and
conditions to reduce your privacy by sleath.
I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole as they apparently used to say.
A missspelling sometimes is very appropriate.
"The surname Sleath with its variants Slay, Slee, Sleith, Sligh and Sly,
is derived from the Middle English sleg or Old Norse sloeg-r, meaning
"clever, cunning", hence "sly". The original meaning of the Norse word was
"able to strike", slog- being the preterite stem of the verb sla "to
