Oh I always post pictures of food I make. Sorry, but I love cooking and am proud of some of my stuff. So if people don't like it, they can hide me. I don't care

I personally am annoyed by all those idiotic "gifts" people send, but I just ignore them. It isn't THAT big of a deal.

Mizkerri, your dishes look so good. You should be proud!

Is there a way to approve photos before they are posted on FB? Just in case some posts a revenge photo of you that's posted for 8 hours while your at work. By the time you get to untag yourself the damage is done.

I haven't looked to see if the request was accepted, but I've never seen that before, then, again, I've never tried to tag someone else in someone else's picture before.

I don't care to see the big plate of nachos you got as an appetizer, or if you want to prove you're drinking a martini. The status updates, although sometimes annoying, I can handle. But stupid pictures like that are ridiculous.

What if I don't even want my friends to know what I'm a fan of? Is that an option? Seriously.

Let's think about this one. It's a public internet page used to alert people you know to things or situations in life. If you don't want these people to know then don't put it up there.

For instance (in case I'm not being clear b/c I feel like I'm not ) If Afrosheenqueen tags me and I make it so its only visible by me, it won't show up on my page to visitors. But when ppl go to her page, won't they be able to see it? I always untag myself, but it bothers me that they're still on the original person's page.

And now -- Gone. All of them. I'm back to scrolling through an endless list of who friended who, who liked what, who just scratched their a**, etc. etc. etc. Damn!

But seriously, it's not anybody here. And as others have said, the whole point is for people to post whatever they want! But I used to be able to sort so that I could JUST look at status updates, or JUST look at links, so that I could see a few things at a time, and not have to sort through all the "friendings" to find the REAL content. I could also look at groups of friends at a time, so I could see what the "curlies" are up to, and then what the "high school friends" are up to, and so on. On my little netbook, it's hard to scroll through all of that! (whine! I know; it's hard being me.....)
Oops. I just figured it out. It's all still there -- I just have to click on "friends" on the left-hand side.

Never mind. Forgive my premature rant.
I just got the new fb layout, I hate it. I couldn't even find the logout button until one of my friends told me where it was. I don't think the logout button should be hidden like that.
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

Nej: too late... moo moo has been infiltrated.

On the other hand-I do not have enough friends to sort them. Ok...off to update my a**scratching status.

My biggest pet peeve is people who post pictures of plates of food captioned with "mmm, yummy".

I don't care to see the big plate of nachos you got as an appetizer, or if you want to prove you're drinking a martini. The status updates, although sometimes annoying, I can handle. But stupid pictures like that are ridiculous.

ETA: I get great ideas for dishes hubby can cook for me!

Well, it's possible that this has changed, because I just tried to do it and it wasn't working. But the way I used to do it is:

To create friend lists:
  • Go to the list that shows all of your friends (there's more than one way to get to it)
  • Click on "create new list"
  • Type in the name of the list
  • Type in friends' names to add them to the list.
  • Once the lists exist, it is easy to add additional friends to them, from this same list of all friends.
To look at news feeds:
  • As you look at your news feed from the home page, you should see menu items listed below "News Feed."
  • Click on "Friends". It should show your friend lists.
  • As you click on each friends' list, your news feed should change, only showing posts by people in that list.
There used to be menu items for "links" and 'status updates," so that you just look at those, as well. Those seem to be gone, however.

It was the "create friend lists" step that seemed all screwy when I checked it awhile ago. Maybe just a glitch?

hth!
