For those (such as myself) who do not really comprehend why Facebook exists I have tried an experiment. I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles. Every day I go down on 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 night. Then I give them pictures of my family, my dog and 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 3 persons following me: 2 police officers and a psychiatrist.
