When ever i sit behind the computer, i turn on FaceBook. Usually i don;t post much, but i do love to watch what my FaceBook friends post.
I try to understand how it works. Why would i want to post anything? It is always an attempt to show off, to get compliments, or at least to draw attention. Of course, there is also a genuine wish to share enthousiasm, but in my case that is only a minor ingredient of my desire to publish on FaceBook.
Recently i have been thinking of using FaceBook as a publication medium. Strange as it may sound, this is not done much, if at all. Most people seem to post only stuff that they have made for other purposes and for other media. That is nice, because so you can have your friends see it too, but it is not what i want. Why not make stuff especially for FaceBook?
