Learning something about Facebook.

I have used Microsoft Word 2000 and am very comfortable with it. When I leave it for something else I am lost.

So you can imagine how lost I am in Facebook. Well, I bought the book, “Facebook—The Missing Manual.

I looked up “Friends” because I wanted to learn something about it…how it worked, etc.

Here is what it said….while having a zillion “friends” is considered a status symbol on My Space, it’s not on Facebook. On Facebook, the goal of friends is to put together a manageable list of people you actually know—and actually care about keeping up with.

So don’t feel bad folks when I don’t Confirm you as a friend. It’s just that I don’t know you from Adam!


George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
