To Like or not to Like, that is the Question.

Hello everyone. As a newbie to Facebook, I must confess that I haven't been able to figure out the simplest thing about it: the "Like" button. So, if you notice that I don't seem to like anyone it is simply because I don't see Like buttons to click on!

This evening, someone "Liked" my company, Myriad Creative Concepts, and I found it frustrating that I couldn't figure out how to Like them back. I saw a button that says a million other people Like them but for the life of me, I couldn't see how I could make that a million + one. I thought, "a million people figured this out, why can't I? But, try as I might, I could not find that Like button anywhere.

The strange this is that I can Like a picture that they have or some post that they wrote. But, I can't like THEM. It's like telling a wife that you love her necklace but you never tell her that you love HER. We all know where that relationship would be going: "You only love me for my necklace. See ya. Adios, amigo. Here's the necklace that you love so much. I hope the two of you will be very happy together."

Maybe the Facebook gods just don't Like me or do not think that my Like is good enough for them? I don't know ... But, whatever the problem is, I hope I get this thing figured out before too many people think that I am snubbing them or something. I hope that for the time being they are just being polite and assuming that I will eventually start liking them back.

But, that brings me to the next Facebook dilemma that I have been having: "Search." That's right, another basic thing about Facebook that a gazillion other people have no problems with but stymies me. For some reason, my Search bar is buried deep in the Admin panel and when I type a company name in there, it lies and tries to tell me that the company or person is not on Facebook. I can type my own name in there sometimes and it doesn't even see me!

I don't know. I think that Facebook is highly over-rated. To Like Facebook or not is definitely the question.

So, for anyone reading this that CAN see Like buttons and you happen to Like Myriad Creative Concepts, please don't expect me to reciprocate until I can hire a computer geek to show me how to do it. Maybe I can email a picture of a Like button as an attachment to you. I guess that would be better than nothing, eh?

Sigh. Thanks for visiting. :)
