Blake, I'm not on FB and won't ever be. I won't flog it, it is a long-standing thing here about my feelings for it. However, what type of thing are you looking for? Do you want a standard pretty landscape pic, a VT flag type thing to promote the site, a "cute kids" shot to get people going "Awwww", something else? I could do with the flipflops, I lost mine a couple of weeks ago and the Philippines really don't seem to supply appropriate replacements for my huge feet!
"I'm not on FB and won't ever be. I won't flog it, it is a long-standing thing here about my feelings for it." Amen to that. There is a group of us still living without facebook...survivors. I wonder when it will be mandatory to buy a plane ticket or to pay taxes or open a bank account...I am pretty sure that day will come.
When I read a statistic from a reliable source that supposedly one in nine of the world's population is on FB, I really start to worry. I'm glad it is not just me that thinks like this.
And not me either,I am not interested and have actually been put down and repeatedly called 'old fashioned' because I refuse to join.My choice not to and I get really 'pi!!ed' off when people tell me it's the best thing since sliced bread..I don't go around trying to force people to join VT,I let people know how good it is,give them the info and it's up to them to follow through,not me pestering and putting them down if they don't. Amen.
