I Decided To Try And Be Helpful For A Change: Some Cool Facebook Tips Or Tricks Or Treats

25 Apr

Facebook – love or hate it, chances are you use it.

I’m a fan myself.

It’s really what you make out of it that determines your experience. I’m not going to go into a pros or cons, dos or don’ts, pluses or minuses about the ‘Book…I’m just going to share some cool things you can do to impress and/or excite your friends and/or yourself.

One think you can do is refer to it as…the ‘Book.

You may not like it, but Timeline is here. This site allows you to do some really cool things with your cover photo:


Zoom Effect

Puzzle Effect

http://laterbro.com is a free service that lets you schedule your status updates for a later time.

http://fbsym.com/ allows you to add random symbols to your status updates. Why? So your friends can ask, “How did you add those random symbols to your status update?”

Just a sample

This site has a list of emoticons you can use in Facebook chat: http://calebbrown.id.au/blog/2008/04/complete-list-facebook-chat-emoticons

A few examples

See ya on the ‘Book.

Editor’s notes: Please have Chris take out the part about referring to Facebook as the ‘Book. It’s weird and dorky and it’s not cool. I also think the Bible has that copyrighted. I don’t want a lawsuit.

Please have him change the ending: See ya on the ‘Book. This is not some cheesy morning cable access show. I don’t want to see: See ya on Facebook either or Kiss my butt or Show me your Boobs…he has done that last one to death.

One other thing, this is not a “Tips” blog or an “Advice” blog or a “How To Save The World From Your Transgender Neighbors, Yo!” blog…tell Chris to stick to stupid stories about Ice Cubes, Zombies, and Sexual Innuendos. I already have plenty of people dishing out advice about Technology, Diaper Changing, Cooking Broccoli, Best Movie Lists, and Where To Take A Wet Dog On Vacation.

If I see this drivel again, tell Chris he is fired and also tell him I want my lucky mechanical pencil back. Not the green one, the blue one. And I want it with the lead filled!

Also please remove these comments before you hit the Publish button. You didn’t do that last time.

    Dear Chris,

    Please ask your editor where I can find the Cooking Broccoli blogs because when I cook it I either make it too crunchy or too soggy, I can never get it just right.

    Love Dotty xxx

    I disagree. We all need to be weirder then we are.
