How to DUMP a Facebook FRIEND who for any reason has become an 'Enemy!"
I attracted a facebook "friend" who knew SOMEBODY THAT I KNOW, I do not recall WHO the third person was but this annoying contact scrawls " I LIKE!" On everything I write and post. So my page is a mosaic of her and me. Every single article has this "I LIKE!" and her name big as blazes, dozens of her SIMPY FACE and her rat tracks, --this puerile applause --which mainly is designed to get folks to CLICK ON "WHO IS THIS ENTHUSIASTIC READER? WITH a Liberal LEFTIST SLANT obviously--"
Now previously this track-leaving net chum has TOLD me that she has five thousand facebook friends! So she's compulsive and maybe even an old hand at this facebook stuff, and I know she sells her CD online and is merchandising like a Southern Preacher with a captive back channel audience ---but her recruiting on my damn page DRIVES ME NUTS --It's a design issue. Her 'I LIKE's are like grout between the bricks of my writings. Didn't like the look but try erasing each I LIKE. You can't. I ask my daughter who knows everything. She doesn't know. Being a one trick donkey, I know one thing: Google! I ask the Great God of Google "HOW TO BLOCK someone on facebook" and BINGO! Google takes me to a page of instructions.
Go to ACCOUNT
Menu comes down, you hit PRIVACY
another menu down pick MANAGE BLOCK
AND punch BLOCK
I AM SO ENTHUSIASTIC AT THIS POINT that FOAM is coming out of my ears.
The FINAL FAENA. You enter her name the way it appears on her page
which DID I TELL YOU?? IS ALL OVER MY PAGE!
That final STAB and the BULL FALLS dead at my feet.
Only SHE WILL NEVER KNOW IT! Ah, the joys of the arena!
I inform my DAUGHTER of this triumph. She wrote me back: "Smart Move, Mom. Now, everything this woman clicked "like" to, will no longer be available for HER audience to see.... so essentially, you just cut yourself off from her "5000 friends" actually getting to see your articles, thoughts and ideas. And possibly themselves becoming your future clients for astrology. Yeah.. Good move."
Sigh. You can't win for losing.
