Going Under Cover

Recommended Posts

I have gone under cover to try an figure out what this whole Facebook thing is about. I refuse to use my real name cause I don't want random people harassing me to be their d**n friend. If i aint contacted you in the last 12 years. There is probably a reason for that. So I'm using the guise of my beloved fiest. Maybe I can get some insight into why people love this "social network" thing so much. I will report back with my findings.

It's that Candy Crush. You play one round and your "hooked".

I never got into Facebook and all that.  Just seems like it causes a lot of unnecessary drama.  Or maybe I just don't have any friends.  Either way, I'm not on it.

It's all what you make of it, you don't have to accept invites from people to be on their friends list or invite anyone yourself.  If one's interest is news or sports for example, FB links to many sites and news feeds are updated all the time.  If the interest is in family and friends, FB a good way to keep in touch and get their feeds.  There are groups of all types, whether one just chooses to follow or join and be a participant.  There is really little difference between a specific group like BR and FB, except on Facebook the subject matter is limitless, there is also instant chat too.  If pretty much the entire world is doing it, there must be something to it.

I use it to keep in touch with family and friends I don't get to see often. I work midnight shift and my weekend is during most peoples work week so actually calling and talking is difficult and I don't have a smart phone so I can't send pictures or anything so if I see something I want to share with them it's a good way to do it. I do enjoy watching some of the drama that goes down with people that I don't ever talk to though  :lol-045:  Some people will post crap I'd never want to put out there for everyone to see, but it's entertaining to say the least. I don't do any of the games anymore and the game request drive me crazy but it's not hard to block a game so every time I get a request I block that game and it's done.

When you find out, let me know.  I don't understand it.

It's useful, but only slightly.

 

I like it to keep up with high school buddies that moved, or maybe a childhood friend that I left behind when our family moved. It's great for that.

 

It's become a lot more helpful too since a lot of fishing gear manufacturers post new info and tips on products, contests, etc.

 

I've found it's all too easy to waste time on it, so I keep my "friends" as just people who are family or close friends. Just another way to keep informed.

 

But it's largely unneeded. I tend to err on the side of if they're really my friend, and I'm really their friend, unless there are extenuating circumstances, it's just as easy to place a phonecall or plan a fishing trip.

It was a lot better back in the day before everyone and their mother was on it. Now i just sit back and laugh at all the stupid choices people are making and posting about.

We use it for our business, it is actually useful in that regard. It allows us to communicate with our customers that use facebook, and it's free. I am amazed the stuff people put on there tho, you can literally follow someone's activities daily, as they post where they are in real time, with their children.. and pictures of them and their kids, in case you needed to identify them when your stalking them.

I figured out what its for when I went to the fireworks on the 4th. It is used I conjunction with a device called a cell phone to grab the attention of teenagers, especially those of the female persuasion, and prevent them from enjoying carnival rides and funnel cakes and live music and fireworks. It gives people the ability to show off small nuances in their pathetic lives to others lacking those nuances in their own pathetic lives. It allows adults to reconnect with people who didn't care about each other 20 years ago and confirm doubts they had about why they didn't keep in contact. Mix in a booty call or two and there you have it. 

 

My step daughter is one of those who has fallen for the spell. Drives me crazy how obsessed she is.

Raider you can post up some cool pics of you flexing in the mirror with your crossbow.

Just don't go shooting any chipmunks or it could be used against you in the court of law.

Duly noted. Another thing to add on to the list to be banned for when my 6 year old gets older.

I post about once a year, on my birthday I get a few "happy birthday" wishes, I say "thanks everybody", and that's it. Social media definately isn't for me.

This is really the only reason that I've considered setting up a FB account but I always seem to talk myself out of it.

A-Jay exactly right.  To an "outsider", that is not a fisherman, hunter, gun lover or other outdoor activist, some of the posts on BR probably seem as stupid to them as some of the posts BR members think are stupid on FB.

My wife could care less about fishing or hunting, she thinks BR is stupid, asked my how I could talk about fishing line for 5 years.

If you "like" the bass fishing links, pros' links, guides' links, manufacturers' links, etc. you will have a myriad of data flowing our way.

 

Right now I am getting a lot of information about ICAST via Facebook. Photos, videos, discussions, etc.

 

Extremely interesting information can be obtained via Facebook on bass fishing.

 

Give it a try.
