I have a lot of problems with Facebook that keep me from using and enjoying it. Anyone that is my "friend" on the site may have noticed that I have never updated my "status". Ever.
Now that I am making progress in fixing Facebook, I am closer to the possibility of my first "update".
When I first got onto Facebook I added people from high school that I remembered or remembered not hating. Next I added people that I have met online, including most of you reading this. Co-workers were excluded and always will be.
Since setting up my account and adding "friends", I found that I can barely tolerate Facebook. Too many "friends" are too annoying. I was constantly scrolling through two pages of crap to find two interesting updates. It was so bad that for several weeks I debated deleting more than half of my list.
Last week, as I scrolled through a sea of "updates", I found my way to fix Facebook. I selected the most annoying "friend" and noticed the option to block their updates from my view.
Within ten minutes I had blocked everyone that needed to be muted. I reloaded the site and saw four status updates.
All four were from people that I was really interested in hearing about. It was perfect!
That was the first day I started to enjoy using Facebook. One step at a time.
