This is just a thought, as you know I have many, and this one is for Facebook users.
Now those of you who are friends with me at Facebook, know that I don’t accept gifts or game invitations, and every once in a while I have to mention this to a new friend, and I know there are those of you who also do this.
Some might ask, if we’re on Facebook, why don’t we want to play facebook games? and that’s fair enough.
We prefer to use Facebook as a means of communication between friends and family, and we don’t have time for, or even like, games.
To us, Facebook is a kind of mini-blog, and we want to keep it neat.
The problem is that we have to explain to new friends about how we feel, and well, it’s a bit awkward.
What we probably need is an easier way to show others what goes, and what doesn’t.
We could have a “FreeSpace logo”, there isn’t one yet, as one of our photos, which would clue people in, or add it to our profile picture which should also work.
A FreeSpace logo on a Facebook page means… No Games, Apps or Virtual Gifts accepted.
Perhaps we’d need to explain what FreeSpace is now and then, but we could just drop a link to the FreeSpace Facebook Page which would explain what it’s about, without awkward explanations.
That may come if this sounds like it might be adoptable, I’m not sure at the moment.
In a perfect world, Facebook would have a setting which would allow us to switch off all of that, but it doesn’t…
and this almost lead me to abandoning Facebook all together, however, once I began to ask people to please not send these things to me, they listened, so if Facebook won’t do it, I reckon the community will.
