Hi, Sarah! Sending a random hello! I'm being reintroduced to Emma Thompson now that I'm finding pictures and video clips for the Facebook page. It is interesting, though I guess most of it is an old hat to all of you. Haven't returned to the forum just yet. I'm still involved with Facebook, V, Twitter...and now, Cradle of Rome--a very addictive PC game. It is very much like Bejeweled, but you earn points to buy things for your city--and you progress from peasant to emperor. It is pretty simple compared to video games as far as design, but it is challenging.
If you do befriend someone on Facebook, though, realize that all your posts are going to show up on their News Feed. This can be embarrassing, which I found out with my YouTube account. I had favorited a video to show my mom because it showed something I didn't realize was actually made--and favoriting allows you to find something quickly. However, then it notified everyone who is my friend, "JLG likes Robospanker." Rather awkward since one of my friends is a 15 year old boy. So rule of thumb, don't ever say anything, like anything, join anything you aren't comfortable letting the whole world know you like...or else do it under a different identity.
Unless you commented on a post, I don't know if people can track who looks at their Facebook page. It isn't like LitNet that way. If it ever becomes an issue, just create a second account for your relatives. You can explain that the other page is for your forum. Most people understand this, I think. After all, I have my personal page--but I have a page that is for my school mates that deals with medical coding only.
Hey. I'm glad you liked my gift. I guess I did a good job selecting it.
We're both not regular here these days- I can see even you haven't been around much.
I hope everything's well.
Just an update to what I wrote yesterday. For its second day of existence, the page doesn't look bad. I've already got two albums, one with Emma pictures and one with Emma fan art. One link. Click the Discussions tab to access our forum-like topics. Friends who are already there: Thea, Jen, Carol, Mette, Giulia, Marguerite, Marysia, and Nicole (or Skeeter). I'm hoping Jess, Rooney, and An will also find their way there...they are on Facebook. We miss you! You can control how much information you put on Facebook. You don't even have to use your real name. I started a page for my class, and what I did is that when they asked for my name...I put Sheridan for the first name and Medicalcoding for the last name. It appears as Sheridan Medicalcoding. They do object to some names--but you don't have to use your real name.
http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/...03887859689602 I've created an Everyone Loves Emma Thompson page on Facebook since it seems the forum may be closed permenantly. It isn't too impressive just now, but I'll work on it.
Thank you very much for your kind birthday wishes, LM!
Hi, Sarah! I hope you are well! Just noticed you haven't been on in a while. Some of our Emma friends are upset because they no longer go to the forum when they click on the link. We do go to a site that calls itself emma-thompson.org--but it isn't the same site. Do you know what is going on? I figured since you were a moderator, you would know.
Hey, Sarah! I hope you are well. I'm recovering from the flu and a little disappointed that some plans got messed up. However, I can reschedule, so it isn't a total tragedy. I just finished a drawing for a Tombraider contest: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pi...00000782026924 I'm very proud of it even if it doesn't win.
Where are you?
