For those of the older generation (like me) who do not really comprehend the need for Facebook:
Presently, I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles.
Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell the passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel, what I have done the night before, and what I will do tomorrow.
Then, I give them pictures of my family, my dog, me gardening, and spending time in my pool. I also listen to their conversations, and I tell them I love them.
And, it works.
I already have three persons following me … two police officers and a psychiatrist.
