That is very much my attitude to FB, however I fear that that was
probably very much the attitude of many people - especially those of my
current age - when telephones were a relatively new thing. I don't like
to think of myself as an old stick-in-the-mud trying to live in the past
so I have to keep wondering if I ought to make more effort to overcome
my aversion to FB.

You have my thoughts exactly. (I. e., I wonder if I ought to.) Though my
having mostly held back is partly just a fear it would swallow up all my
time, as well as the technical matter below, and _not_ the actual
_aversion_ I detect among many non-users: I can see it brings a lot of
enjoyment to a lot of people, and I _don't_ have anything against that.
(All the general snootiness about social media, I dismiss: I'm sure it
_is_ what you make of it. Like newsgroups.)

[I say I've _mostly_ held back: I do have a Facebook "account" (is that
the right word?), because I once wanted to post in a "group" (ditto?)
there, and it seemed I had to get one to do so.]

Yes, I miss Sebastian for lots of reasons; his expertise on many
computing matters, I'm a Germanophile (and he is from "my" part of
Germany or not far from it), and just generally a nice guy.

[If someone knows he's alive and well and living on Facebook, please
don't say (-:!]

The technical problem I have with Facebook: I just can't grasp how it
_works_ on a PC (and haven't tried on a 'phone); my mind likes to work
in a fairly linked or branching manner, and the typical Facebook page -
when I've looked at one - seems to go all over the place. (Oh, and keeps
loading for ever.) It's not just the top-posting (latest at the top)
aspect - I've learnt to live with that on Twitter (though would love not
to); it seems a lot more chaotic.

(I joined Twitter originally, about February last year I think, under
the impression it might help my petition [it didn't, though probably
partly because I didn't know how, and hadn't got followers]. I've stayed
with it, though. And it has the ability to swallow all my time, hence my
concern over FB.)

Well, I use it quite a lot. I am extemely careful as to which Friend
Requests I accept, and do not hesitate to 'snooze' people or groups
which are getting annoying or too prolix. I have made some new friends
there through for example groups dedicated to certain books, and have
picked up with many old friends through opera/performance/musicology
groups. I subscribe to a couple of Archers groups: neither of them is as
cosy as this, but they can be quite fun, and I also ignore them
frequently. Facebook is what you make it.

Absolutely! Whilst Usenet can be great, and I would miss it a
great deal if it eventually dwindled, Facebook keeps me in touch
with quite a number of people from whom I would otherwise be
isolated, and presents interesting chance encounters.

I have also joined Twitter. I don't say much, but there is an
amazing amount of stuff to read out there that I would otherwise
miss.

I am very careful with it too, and do NOT have the app on my phone, I
just read it in the browser on the rare occasions I use it awayfrom my
laptop.

I also have Fluff Busting (FB geddit) Purity installed which is a free
app that gets rid of ads and other annoyances. You can even set it to
ignore keywords, so for example Trump, you can MFBGA. :)

I've also noticed that those umrats who I now consider friends are
people I've got to know far better through Facebook, than I did when we
only chatted on umra. I find I see people far more in the round there,
as a far wider range of topics tend to be discussed.

I guess it's the having to learn yet another user interface that's
putting me off - how to recognise a person; how to recognise a "group";
how to "snooze" them; ... I'm taking longer to learn the Twitter one
than I once would have.

I'm sure that's true. However, time - I follow quite a few on Twitter,
and reading my "Timeline" could easily exceed real-time. And I don't
want to get back into Gillivering (for that way lies madness).

I'm very glad that I won't go within a very long bargepole's length of FB.
That’s rather too close by an extremely long chalk on a pole to my way of
thinking - there be dragons...
That is very much my attitude to FB, however I fear that that was
probably very much the attitude of many people - especially those of my
current age - when telephones were a relatively new thing.  I don't like
to think of myself as an old stick-in-the-mud trying to live in the past
so I have to keep wondering if I ought to make more effort to overcome
my aversion to FB.

I have always enjoyed online chat places, starting with closed user
groups and chatlines on Prestel, before the internet. I like FB as a
way to share news with many friends at the same time and keep in touch
with what they are doing and how they are. Also the interest groups
are often very good. Georgette Heyer one, TA ones, Dorothy Sayers one
etc. I used other systems before FB and still have the account on
Livejournal.

But I have not managed to get into aps. I get very annoyed when
organisations, and every single one now is doing it, urge me to get
their nuggering ap. They use data, don't they? My fiver a month
mobile phone account gives me data which I never use but do not want
to start exceeding for aps to do things Iprefer ona PC.

Most fobiles - certainly, I think all that can do "apps" - can use wifi
instead. You can turn "mobile data" off, when in range of wifi - in your
own home of course, but also when in McDonalds/Wetherspoon or _many_
other places, including for example many shopping malls. (Probably most
by now; I don't travel enough to know.)

I think - I don't use mine enough - on some 'phones and/or some app.s,
you may be able to decide which ones can use mobile data on a per-app.
basis. (But if you never use mobile data anyway, just leave it turned
off completely - that is a 'phone setting; it is _separate_ from voice
calls and texts, i. e. turning mobiledata off won't stop those working.)

off completely - that is a 'phone setting; it is _separate_ from voice
calls and texts, i. e. turning mobiledata off won't stop those working.)
I have used data to get photos or when meeting a daughter and am lost

I'm very glad that I won't go within a very long bargepole's length of FB.
That’s rather too close by an extremely long chalk on a pole to my way of
thinking - there be dragons...
That is very much my attitude to FB, however I fear that that was
probably very much the attitude of many people - especially those of my
current age - when telephones were a relatively new thing. I don't like
to think of myself as an old stick-in-the-mud trying to live in the past
so I have to keep wondering if I ought to make more effort to overcome
my aversion to FB.
There are many areas of Facebook - not unlike usenet (or pubs).
You can pick and choose where you go, what you look at and what you read.

I belong to several groups. I can reminisce with people, both younger and
older than I, who used to (or still do) live in the village where I grew
up. I can see what's going on in and around the village where I lived in
Kent.

I can get information about 'wild' camping spots around Britain.
I can see what other people have found on the beach.
I can learn about all sorts of insects.
I can find all manner of experts who will answer questions or identify
things.
I found a local, recommended, electrician (though not when he will return
to finish the job...).

I can see what events are planned locally or further afield which may
interest me and get reminded about them on the day.

I can readily communicate with other members of my singing and art groups
(and also find out a bit about them, if they let me).

Most of all I can see what my grandchildren (and their mothers) have been
up to - and vice versa.

But not, in a lot of cases, what FB data mines from you. Not to mention
the 'social experiments' that it conducts, again, without your knowledge

Think of it as a magazine, John, you can scroll down your news feed (flick
through) and take a closer look at something which catches your eye or you
can go to the index (your groups list or notifications) and go directly to
one of those.

I think (maybe with fb purity) you can just view a friends feed which will
remove any stuff from institutions you follow. Several lapsed umrats on
facebook.

#1 daughter asked if I was thinking of social distancing, which I
googled in case she wanted to stop seeing me, and it was also a way to
avoid the virus. She partly meant not drive into London and mingle
with the germ spreaders at the school gate and swimming classes.

You are isolating because you have travelled? I decided the risk was
growing too much to carry on going to the health club pool and
probably to Weightwatcher meetings :(. Today was the first day
substituting walk for swim.

I already walk the dog anyway but this was just me as he said he is
not getting up that early and finds the usual walk enough for his
arthritis. It is easier walking without him as nobody is jerking me
around to follow scents and tell other dogs how tough he is (he is
not) but walking is more tiring than swimming.

I suppose I didn't swim for as long atfirst and found that more tiring
but time increased as it went on. Maybe the walking will too. I
suppose you will stop after 2 weeks but i am afraid I will have to
carry on for a few months. The risk to either of us of the virus is
quite high. B never goes out really anyway and I didn't live in a
social whirl but will miss seeing grandkids and family. And the swim.

D#1 has had a breakthrough of understanding over this (she's never really
understood how I fail to get stuff done). She has spent quite a lot of this
year on strike and had imagined this would free her up to get a lot of
stuff done and ticked off her inevitable list (a great list-maker is d#1).
The reality is, when not actively picketing, she has played with her
children, vegged out in front of the TV or found other displacement
activity. I don't think she has even written any new lists.

She said yesterday, "I need to have time in squares."

She's not alone

She´s fine and she´s delighted that you asked - thank you!

The wrist is still troubling her and of course there won´t be any

Facebook has gone berserk!
I found that very upsetting listening. And do not recall ever that
they began an episode with the last seconds of the previous one. Sort
of previously....

So they nuggering did it. She better be ok. It did not sound like it
and a whole episode of listening to Freddie calling Lynda, we've got
to get out, there is no way out etc was nasty. OTT for a 15 minute
programme. Oliver was a bit in shock or doddery? Roy was doing well.
Tracy too.Emma too.

ISTRT they went back in time for previous events; one of which was the
horsepiddal scenes and sepsis storyline. They also went back for a
momentous event a year or so ago - umbrella what it actually was now...
