This is your thread.

Rock it, dudes.

I switched in Facebook - went for another language preference. I switched from English (US) to English (UK) some 10 days or so ago, and nobody on my Facebook has noticed the difference.






What's funny about that, is neither have I.

It all depends on what colour you prefer I guess. I much prefer to take a Lift because I just hate Elevators.
Jolly good! :greetings
In fact I can not get used to the (American) spell checker removing all the u's in the GB english. That was what I learned in school.
But there is no big difference.
It is only to expect that the language would deteriorate in the old colonies, since they rejected the positive British influence back in the 18th century. :shock:

Is funny how people gets all excited about Facebook.

See all former acquaintances, invite them as friends and realize later why you cut ties with them in the 1st place. :lol:

I am not in favor of Social Networking.
F-book advertise way too much about of what you put there.
Same with Twitter, who wants to talk or read crap about whoever eat for breakfast :lol:

My wife made me an account and is simmering there, doing a dam thing.
She did not even used my real name either.
The reason for it was to add me as a friend in Farmville :A
A game that she does not play any more :lol:

All I'm going to say to that is at one time social networking had absolutely no place in my life, but came to learn that it can be, and therefore is currently, being used for MUCH more powerful and meaningful things than what you speak of there. I have close to 800 followers on Twitter, and have come to know them up close and personal in a way, and wouldn't trade a single one of them for anything. They fight hard for what they believe in, give good information in their tweets to everyone, and are very fine upstanding people. It's the same on my Facebook. At first in Facebook, I gamed, until I woke up one morning and realized what it was all about, which is something that is FAR, FAR, from games and just "keeping up with people".

Social media is a very good tool when used right. There are those who are not into it, but if they realize the power in it, they could be. It's all in the quality you keep.
