Does anyone understand what is going on with Facebook?
I just don't have the patience to figure it out right now.

Facebook and I have a Love / hate relationship.
I keep track--- at least on a shallow level-- with many people I would never hear from otherwise.  Surely it does not take the place on a good long phone call or a visit in purpose, but it is good!
I like hearing about Cathy's little bun-in-the-oven and how big he is getting
And if not for FB I wouldn't even know about other buns in ovens
Sometimes it is the only way to get my daughter's attention--- even when she is at my house!
And I love to see the pictures!
On the down side we have the birthday situation!
Maybe this hasn't happened to you, but it happens to me often.
Back in the olden days you sent off a card and it got there somewhere around the birthday and you didn't really need to know the exact day. 
But now... you post a Happy Birthday message on Face Book and you had better have the right day or you are going to look stupid.  Well intentioned, but stupid. 
Of course if you DON'T post on their birthday it is worse!
I have a few friends that I suspect have been victims of my fuzzy memory though none have corrected me so I am not sure.
Which means I will suffer emotionally for another 364 days and then it will be deja vu all over again!

You are a silly. I can't figure the birthday thing out either. I usually cheat and see that someone else wished a b day and I go join in.
