Ok, is there anyone who isn’t on Facebook?

How regularly do you check your page?

What sort of things come up on your news feed?

I thought I would have a look at the strange mix of things that have appeared on my page during the course of a day.,

I’m writing here about my personal Facebook page, not the one linked to my blog.   If you want to join me in my personal daily wanderings through my Facebook journey, join me at http://facebook.com/georgina.moon1

Firstly, I belong to several photographic groups, so I get notifications whenever someone likes or comments on one of my pictures.

I have lots of posts from the group We’re Mad About Greece and the Greek Language.

I belong to several sailing groups, so there are always lots of comments and photos to look at.

For example, on the site Women who Sail, people are asking for advice on anchorages, marinas, where to buy certain equipment, pets on board, sailing qualifications, galley equipment. Largely USA women.

Silversurfers is a Facebook page dedicated to more ‘mature’ folk. Old photos, reference to old tv progs, music, cartoons, funny sayings.

Some writing groups offer hints and tips. This is a good website for writers –

The Daily Mail news page appears regularly, showing news headlines, but mostly celebrity gossip, royal family on holiday, Kim Kardashian posing naked. I really must change my reading habits!

Woman’s Own magazine page – asking for comments on the dresses of bride and bridesmaids worn at wedding of Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall. Other similar magazines I follow offer Easter recipes and new season’s fashion.

My cat, Artemis, has her own Facebook page, so I check for comments and might post a new photo.
