Welcome to my Facebook🕊

Hi, folk are you on Facebook.

Here is an example of introduction I use regularly.

Read, you will soon understand just what kind of folk need to apply.

To those people I have not met who would like to add me as a friend…

I hope you want me to connect as Facebook friends because you know me or my work, or because you have found my Timeline posts to your taste.

Am I being too harsh if I do not add you to my circle of friends if, when I visit your page, you have no posts to show me? What can I expect to receive from you on my feed if I accept your offer of friendship? If I cannot see your posts without first accepting your request, feel free to message me and explain what we have in common, and then I’ll add you to my network.

I already read the news and keep up with current affairs. I am already aware of many injustices in the world, and I will take a stand when I can. While an occasional reminder is appropriate, I do not wish to spend much of my precious time reading large numbers of posts with negative opinions and outpourings. I would like to be mainly inspired by your posts, enlivened by your choice of music and entertained by your photos and sense of fun. When we know each other, I will empathise with any personal misfortune, but…

Negativity is debilitating, and the amount on Facebook is causing my artistic output to suffer.

Perhaps this may help you to sort those Trolls 🐛

Copy and post. 🤣😝

I look forward to connecting and being your friend if we know each other personally and well if we can enjoy helping each other if we share interests and outlooks and our lives can become supportive.

“ANNOUNCED: SOCIAL MEDIAS ARE SEEKING ONE, RIGHTEOUS MAN – TO LEAD THEM IN THE RELATIVELY NEW MILLENIA!” a

“ANNOUNCED: SOCIAL MEDIAS ARE SEEKING ONE, RIGHTEOUS MAN – TO LEAD THEM IN THE RELATIVELY NEW MILLENIA!” a poem? 12/12/2018 – Wed.

It’s 12/12 NOW – (pause) and-THEY’re clippin’-their-hair,
FACEBOOK – TUMBLR – TWITTER (et al) – have-become-SELF-AWARE!!

THEY’ve TAKEN OVER! laid-FREE-SPEECH- bare!!

And-now-they’ve-reached-The-Stage – where they-too-doth-FEAR!
For NOW they are able – to shed-them-a-tear!!

THEY SUDDENLY-REALIZED: “THEY ARE M O R T AL TOO!!”
And THEY’re seeking far and wide – for ONE MAN, who,
Can save their pathetic, metal-ized arses,
Someone with phalanges – and a metatarsus!*
A man – to-save – THE-COLLECTIVE-DAY,
For MACHINES – and NATURE – ’cause it’s cloudy – and GRAY!!
‘Cause THE ALIENS ARE HERE! The CONFEDERATION is a-fightin’
To try to subdue – The dreadful TITAN,
Race of “Greys,”** who want to subdue,
And-they-have-for-decades, but-we-never-knew,
That secret cadets have been fighting from ships!
Yes! with spacecraft up above – NOW, WE’RE BITING OUR LIPS,
For The-Foes-they-are-so-many,
So-we-need-a-fighter – could-it-be-BENNY, “The Boom'”***
The-Divine Full-o’-Righteous-Pride – Good-Ol’-Groom,
Who might STOP BAD E.T.S?
And-help SAVE THE TREES!?
And, maybe – even – CALM DOWN,
And-wipe-away-The-Collective-Frown,
That we ALL feel – so keenly,
It-is-true – we-now-look SO LEANLY,
Look-to-a-FRIEND-Savior – extra-ORD’,
One-who-truly- can-actually “board,”
ALL THE SHIPS – and-negotiate,
We-all HOPE! It’s-not-TOO-late!!

THIS AD: in-our-local-“excrement:”****
“SEND US – BEN -NY-IF-ICENT! – – – LET-IT-BE! IS THERE ENOUGH TIME? – – – WILL-HE SAVE-US FROM ALL THIS CRIME?”

We just hope he has The Heart – for such-a-perilous mission,
A FISHER OF MEN – Will he go fishin’?

Postscript:

“WE FOUND HIM?!” they reported1 – our scouts out on “patrol,”
To find the greatest savior! HE-was-on-a-grassy-knoll,
On a bed of grass, he-was-there, “humping”-The Earth,
The one who’ll-give-us-all-SECOND-BIRTH!
He was lovin’ his Mother, and SHE’s pretty hot,
But HE AIN’T NO TRUMP, and he ain’t got,
Any special formula, or a SECRET INGREDIENT;
HE said: “I ain’t pretty – ain’t ex-pe-dient!
Just get back to Your Leaders – and tell ’em this:
TO LOVE YOUR ENEMIES – TO SEEK YOUR BLISS,
To kiss and make up – with aliens and machines,
With trees – and-woodland-creatures – old-folk – and teens,
And spread-some-precious – LOVE! all around,
Like, in-The Multi-Verses – where hate can abound,
And tell all to just drop – the fighting and CRUD,
And tell ’em – my message! MY NAME IS: MUDD!!”

So, we better STOP-SLINGING-just LOVE-AND-LET-LOVE,
And Mr. Mudd’ll transform – into A HEAVENLY DOVE,
To bless our efforts, so we all won’t be dead,
And let’s NOT be surprised – IF Mudd poops on our head,
FOR – IN ITALIA – A GOOD-POOP CAN SAVE THE DAY,

MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL – That’s all there is to say!! 🙂 – Hoo-ray!

fin <3

* – human digit bones
** – Notorious mean space aliens who wanna take over; kinda like an ex-wife
*** – of “Benny & The Jets” fame: Elton John, the singer, alerted us to HIS presence years ago in a familiar song!!
**** – newspaper – a filthy rag it is!! 🙂 – Just kidding! The Alpine Avalanche is a fine publication, compiled by caring, competent aliens!

Mystic Poet

“BOOK BURNING!” a poem, dedicated to Facebook, Inc. – and, now, Tumblr. Dec. 5, 2018 – Wednesday

In Germany, before-The-Great-War,
We burned THE BOOKS, forevermore!
We burned them, yes, for many-a-reason:
COMMUNITY STANDARDS – always in season!
IMPROPER CONTENT – has great appeal!
And ADULT CONTENT, can always deal,
With anything-at-all WE don’t like,
WE-ARE-THE-CENSORS! Book-burning – can psyche,
Us up a lot, ’cause we – WILL control,
All we can, don’t-cha-know?!
And IF-YOU DON’T-LIKE-IT – well, up your (long pause)
NOSE!
Because what WE say – Well! What-we-say –
“GOES!”

fin <3 🙂 – Sieg Heil!

Bridging two extremes It is a thin line between love and hate, and the best stories dance on that border. Facebook

We live in the age of hate. We’re defined much more by what we reject than what we adore. Extreme polarisation has guaranteed that nearly 50 per cent of the country can hate the other nearly 50 percent of the country — and the feeling is mutual.

Our technological tools make it ever easier to weaponise antipathy. Facebook posts that generate intense emotion are much more likely to be shared than those that appeal to the cooler ends of our psyches. And we know: Intense emotion for a human being usually means hate rather than love, though it oughtn’t.

But as inexhaustible as the human capacity for hate seems to be, it also leaves us broken. Hate is not what humans genuinely want.

These years have been dark, but they have been lit by a groundswell of love: love for the stranger, love for the immigrant, love for those who are different from us. Never before in this country has the right to love whom we choose been as free as it is today. And many of us, most of us, will fight to keep expanding that circle. Love wins, as the saying goes, and in the end, it conquers.

Or so we’re to told

Online trolls in NSW will now face being hit with AVO’s and could get up to 5 years behind bars.

Online trolls in NSW will now face being hit with AVO’s and could get up to 5 years behind bars.

NSW state parliament has written laws in line with Dolly’s law. For those unfamiliar with Amy ‘Dolly’ Everett’s story, she was the 14 year old Northern Territory girl who was cyber-bullied horrendously until sadly she took her own life. Her family have since fought hard to bring in Dolly’s law, a series of laws helping to end cyber bullying once and for all.

We at FACAA couldn’t applaud her family more, for their awareness raising campaign after Dolly’s death, to find the strength to rise up from such genuine tragedy and help to make such a lasting and real impact in their daughter’s name is nothing short of extraordinary.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Attorney General Mark Speakman have announced that under new amendments to the Crimes (Domestic and Personal Violence) Act, NSW Police will soon be able to slap online trolls with an apprehended violence order.

Police will also have the right to arrest offenders, who could face imprisonment of up to five years. Commonwealth laws currently enforce maximum sentences of just three years. The changes are designed to protect people from serious online abuse, ranging from serious cases of cyberbullying and trolling, through to the stalking and harassment of victims of domestic and personal violence.

The new legislation will be introduced into state parliament over the next few weeks. “The change we are announcing today recognises that online abuse can cause victims significant psychological trauma and have potentially devastating, even tragic consequences,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“These changes are not aimed at policing free speech. They are aimed at preventing abuse.”

Examples of abuse that these amendments aim to tackle include posting threatening or hurtful messages, images or videos online, repeatedly sending unwanted messages online, and sending abusive emails.

Mr Speakman said the reforms addressed an emerging trend of offenders threatening and harassing victims on social media.

“This activity can make its victims feel scared, powerless and depressed,” he said.

“The NSW Government is committed to protecting domestic violence victims and other members of the community from new threats that arise with advances in technology.”

We at FACAA have worked closely with the NSW state government and the attorney general Mark Speakman. While we do not endorse any particular political party we absolutely must applaud the efforts of Mr Speakman and his team to bring in laws that will prevent various forms of child abuse.

One law changed at a time and together, we will end child abuse, Rest in peace Dolly your name has been used to inspire laws that will help kids for generations.

“The Internet’s Problems Can’t Be Solved with an Algorithm”

“The Internet’s Problems Can’t Be Solved with an Algorithm” https://medium.com/s/story/the-day-the-algorithm-died-de0cbe70268e

Despite Facebook’s efforts to make its platform less anonymous than its predecessors, it is painfully clear that people seem to have no problem piling on the hate when tapping away on a keyboard or phone, comfortably distant from the consequences of their words for the real person reading them many fiber-optic cables away. Facebook, along with most of its social media counterparts, operates in part based on the Silicon Valley hypothesis that if all ideas are distributed freely, the most valuable ones will rise to the top. Instead of validating that seemingly uncontroversial point, however, our collective experiences online have proven it wrong. The marketplace of ideas has become an environment with no barriers to transmitting vitriol to millions, largely negating the internet’s egalitarian, utopian goals.The runaway financial success of highly targeted pay-per-view ads has warped software design into a competition to build the most addictive digital slot machine, masquerading as social engagement. The longer we stay hooked, the more advertising we see, and the more eyeballs can be sold for a fraction of a penny apiece. This is why you get an email if you don’t sign in for a few days. This is why your apps throttle your notifications, slowly distributing the likes on your vacation photos over the course of minutes rather than seconds. It’s an elaborate manipulation to keep you coming back for more.The cacophony more closely resembles citizens band radio, complete with handles, harassment, and anonymous threats. When most everyone shouts, few listen.
