Well gang here's the deal, I joined face ache this week not sure why but probably unashamed noseyness. Now I'm not thick although I do a good impression sometimes but the jargon just gets me every time its a bit like learning another language and I was never very good at that when I was at school, I did learn to speak enough German to get me by when I lived out there and was desperate to learn French at school but that had more to do with Mr Leclaire the hottest sexiest French man that should never have been allowed in an all girls grammar school let alone speaking French to them then we found out he was married with a young baby broke our hearts , anyway back on track is there a how to or a jargon buster as at the moment it:pc::pc::pc::help::help:might as well be in Chinese but I will persevere and hope fully crack it soon

I can't understand my 22 year old daughter who is totally savvy with Face ache, Twatter, Bebo, Buzznet etc etc. I don't know if it is the social networking sites that dictates the language or vice versa but she might aswell be talking Swahili.
And don't get me started on text, what the bloody hell is that language? The Clangers were more coherent!

Or am just getting too old & stuck in my ways?

Well I'm trying my best to be in there and down with the kids but like you say its Swahili and when I asked my granddaughter for a little help she very politely said its not really got the oldies that made me more determined .

Well Annie, if I can do it(just) then I am sure a clever girl like you can. I also use it to keep in touch with family and it still feels like hard work sometime and if I leave it for a couple of days I have to start again and work out what to do :scared::rulez:

this may help you fathom the enigma code the kids speak:

as for working out how to use faceache itself, that's still a work in progress for me too

Faceache (or ArseBook I call it :D ) can be pretty crappy imho.

In fact, I'm amazed at its popularity, but maybe that's only because it was the first mass-communication web application of its kind to catch on because it was slightly better than anything else at the time?

Yes, I use it and yes, I find some bits useful.

But from a software design point of view there are elements that are totally insane, badly thought out and very frustrating for the "end user".

Still, they're constantly tweaking it, so the sad b*gg*rs might eventually make it work better one day in the future! ;) :D
