I have never been able to work out what Facebook is really about. I don't think most people on Facebook have an idea what its really about either. I think of having a Facebook account as one of those things that people do just because they consider it to be fashionable. I am yet to come across a Facebook profile that makes any sense, since to start with, its quite unlikely that any person could in reality have upwards of 100 "friends", unless we dilute the definition of the word "friend" to include casual acquaintances we meet in cyberworld, who we really know nothing about other than what they choose to tell us, which in any event might be as far from the truth as the Earth is from the Moon..
Over the years I received so many invitations to be added as a Facebook "friend", mostly by people I'd never heard of. So I did the fashionable thing and opened a Facebook account. I have since managed to accumulate over fifty Facebook friends, none of whom I know in real life nor have ever met. I have visited the Facebook pages of people I know, and even those pages have not had on me the effect that they are supposed to have. Since opening my account, I have waited patiently for even one of these friends to do or say something interesting, or for something exciting to happen, but all in vain. All I see on Facebook are the odd comment by folks who really have nothing to say, but seem to think that they too must have an online presence.
Perhaps there is something that I'm missing, but I have not found anything interesting on Facebook. Today I tried to log into my account, which I have not visited for several weeks. After typing in my password, Facebook came back with the message "Your account is temporarily suspended". It was suggested that there might have been some phishing activity going on concerning my account. There was the option to restore the account, but it meant that I would have to type in a secret code number that would be sent to my phone by text message. Reluctantly, I followed the directions and the secret number was delivered by text to my phone. I typed in the number as directed, but still my account would not open. I repeated the exercise over and over, to no avail. Now I've had it! I will never be logging into Facebook ever again! I was never interested in it anyway!
