Debra, the misogyny is the worst part but I can't figure out their methods and motives. I like to be in touch with people too. I had to get in touch with a friend the other day so I went to her timeline page to send her a private message. On her page, I saw all kinds of news and photos that I'd never seen -- pics of her with her kids, their recent vacation etc.
Meanwhile, over on my news feed, I continue to get the same three or four people who post unending lists of everything they're reading. Some of it might be interesting but lately, I'm just scrolling through. And I like dogs as much as the next person, but on top of other people's reading material, I'm getting picture after picture of lost dogs.
Mixed into all this are the "inspirational" sayings, stupid posters and ecards.
It's reached the point where if I get a personal status report and a photo that someone has actually taken, I'm quite grateful!
