". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

Fun Facebook Games

This is from a pastor friend of mine. I respect him for all sorts of reasons, most recently what he has taught me about Facebook. Thank you, Pastor Cwirla, for helping me put things into perspective.

Pastor Cwirla's Fun Facebook Games, or How Not to Take Facebook Too Seriously

#10: Instigate endless threads. Award prizes for milestones such as the 1000th comment.

#9: Defriend someone who insults a friend of a friend of a friend of yours. Relive those great junior-high social dynamics.

#8: "Like" posts and comments you obviously disagree with. The parliamentary version of this game is speaking for motions you actually intend to vote against.

#7: Respond to every post as though it were written about you. Narcissism is self-rewarding.

#6: Pick an arbitrary friend and "like" every comment on his or her wall for a month regardless of content. Creepy but very affirming.

#5: Post a link to your recent brilliant blog, then defriend everyone who doesn't like it. Easy way to trim down that bloated friends list.

#4: Hijack every thread and turn it into a discussion on bacon.

#3: Post a snarky comment and then get offended because everyone is offended. Embrace the passive-aggressive beast within.

#2: Make a post on how people waste too much time on Facebook. Revel in the irony.

#1: Ask for an opinion on something and then tell everyone why they're wrong. Epic fun.
