Back with a Monday moan

First of all an update on the TIAS.  We now have 95 foxes completed.  I'm a happy tatter!

One of my favourite moans is about Facebook.  I DO NOT like Facebook!!!!  There I’ve said it.  
Why don’t I like it?  I don’t ever go to Facebook unless I’m tagged or want to pass on news (like the next stage of the TIAS).  I do have notifications that go directly into my email box and that’s where I decide if anything is worth looking at.  Most emails are deleted but some I do follow up if only to turn on 'notifications'.

I appreciate the tatting groups, though but really, really have a problem with the way that people don’t read the posts put on there.  Often they don’t read the question asked carefully but mainly they don’t read the answers already given.  The number of times somebody puts the same answer up to a question can be mind boggling.  I realise that there’s a sort of ‘tree’ of answers and comments but people don’t seem to read them and just repeat the same thing over and over.

I’m sure that there are some very interesting things going on on Facebook in the tatting world but If I wanted to look something up that I’d seen a week before I’m sure I’d never find it.  Things get ‘lost in time’ on that platform.  I prefer my blog (and other people's which I read avidly) where I can look things up and find them easily using the search on the top left corner. 

Monday moan over with and here's an Easter egg to cheer the post up!!!

Beautiful egg. I hate Facebook. The only reason I keep my accounts is due to my sister handicap. She is unable to speak so this is how she communicates. I have long ago, left all the tatting blogs, I find them aggravating. I prefer our blogs. Which seem to get lost to Instagram (which I also hate because you have to use that blasted smart phone to up stuff).

Tome and Marie's Fishing Adventures - the only reason I stay on Facebook is because I'm nosy. Rarely use Instagram either. Once in six months perhaps!!!!

If you think that you will one day want to revisit something you saw on Facebook this morning, you must save it immediately, because it will not be there in half an hour!
There’s a huge backlash against it in Australia because it is refusing to show any news items. I found this baffling because I have never gone to Facebook for news! I am there only for the tatting patterns and pictures of my grandchildren.
However even those are infrequently shared, because my children and grandchildren are using other platforms now, and I have reached the limit of my interest in and involvement with online living.
