I’ll take “Things That Suck” for a hundred, Alex

By Tara Zandra | November 30, 2010

I lost my beloved camera on August 4th. As of yet, I have not been able to replace it. Chris’s camera just isn’t good enough, neither is my phone. I’m still taking pictures because I figure lower quality is better than none, but I’m sad every damn time I take a picture.

Today, as a special birthday gift to Chris, I spilled an entire 32oz Diet Coke on Chris’s phone. His fairly new and expensive phone. There’s a slight chance it will recover. There’s a ginormous chance that I have to find a way to replace it just as Christmas shopping is taking every last penny I have.

Facebook has decided my friends don’t need to see what’s going on with me. Think about it, when was the last time you saw a post by me? Guess what? I’ve been posting non-stop and only very recently figured out that none of my status updates are making it into anyone’s newsfeed. You can see for yourself. I’m not blocking a single friend, so if you go directly to my wall, you’ll see all the stuff I’ve posted. I bet not a one of you saw it in your newsfeed. So it’s lonely for me on Facebook right now and there doesn’t seem to be a way to fix it. Chris and I have both researched help forums and scoured the internet for an answer. So far, what we’ve come up with is a lot of people have this problem, and no one knows how to fix it. I’m open to suggestions as long as you realize of course we checked my settings first thing. And rechecked and rechecked. And changed them and changed them back. Oh, and it doesn’t matter if I post via my phone or my computer or my netbook. Nothing shows up in the newsfeed.

Tomorrow I’ll talk about good things, but tonight, I’m pissed and don’t have it in me to be otherwise.

    This all sounds awful. I hadn’t thought about not seeing posts from you on Facebook, since I read your blog here.

    I just thought recently that I had not seen you post anything on FB and wondered if you had dropped me of your friend list…..LOL
