Facebook Page Liking, The Good and The Bad

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

When I log into facebook of a morning, my feeds are not limited to everyday life updates from my worldly friends, but I am also flooded with news-feeds of numerous blog and business pages that I follow.

I have to admit I 'like' far too many facebook pages than I perhaps should, and have becoming somewhat of a facebook page hoarder.  (I just checked, I like 508 pages..uh-oh)

There is nothing better than checking through my facebook feeds of a morning to; be tempted by sustainable fashion pieces, be intrigued flabbergasted by upcycle projects, read up on market and op shop news, see what some of my favourite bloggers are up do, and check out a nice wildlife picture or two, you know, just because.

This morning, I am delighted to see I am tempted to clothe myself in a stunning fair trade dress... 

Fair Trade Bold African Print Dress 

Which, wouldn't you know, match the most amazing lampwork earrings as seen on Artizen Magazine's facebook page..

Lampwork Earrings Handmade available here

Some of my fellow bloggers have been talking about the following (brilliant) article  
from Pearls and Wisdom

Altogether now, awwww.. a newsfeed from Our Beautiful World & Universe

And then, there was this... what the?

Now don't get me wrong, I adore Recyclart, which is filled with upcycling inspiration, and fabulous recycled art, but I am just not sold on the idea of  'seat and weigh'!?

Do you follow lots of facebook pages? Do you find facebook feeds interesting or annoying? Is there a facebook page anonymous group I should know about?  Anyone care to join me?....

Amazingly, I've managed to keep my FB "liking" and trawling under control - I have no idea how though! x

I tried to cut back on the amount of FB pages that I like a little while back. That didn't really go so well, haha. I just love seeing what everyone is up to!

Hmmm - there is a gorgeous pencil skirt in that same fabric at Fashion-conscience.com . . . I am not too active on Facebook, but I appreciate these links you shared today : >

I think we are all in the same boat! There are far too many things to 'like'! My friends often get annoyed at having feeds full of blogs/shops/airlines etc and the amount of posts but if you don't like the posts - don't like the page.
I do find some deadly stuff through FB though. Nice post Erica! xx

Erica -
There must be millions of us out here now feeling the same way!

I have scales that are not working.. This could be an idea...
No - I think i will just let Dolly pull it apart as an educational exercise.

Each time I have to get on scales before boarding small planes I cringe :-)
