I've got this blog and I've also got a Facebook account, and they couldn't be more different. If I say something serious on Facebook, I rarely get any response whatsoever. But post a photo of my breakfast? Twenty to thirty responses. Not to mention the fan letters.
Seriously. I get fan letters. For my breakfasts.
They're good breakfasts, admittedly. But still. I think we can all agree that there's a certain . . . gravitas that's missing from the Facebook experience.
Lately, I've noticed that, increasingly, people are making and posting humorous photo posters, like the above. (Is there a name for them? Thumbnail posters, maybe?) Sometimes they're serious, and when they are, they're usually political.
Here on Blogger, things are the exact opposite. I don't think I'll be posting very many political messages here. But if I do, they almost certainly won't be serious.
Above: Case in point.
