Okay, I’ve decided to try using the dreaded Facebook a little more, particularly after hearing all of the talk about instant articles in news and more people using Messenger. I knew about this podcast of Robert Scoble (who’s all in on Facebook) trying to teach Leo Laporte how to use it back in August but had never gotten around to checking it out.
If you want to learn how to “really use” Facebook in it’s current form, I recommend watching it and even working through this stuff.
So, starting around about 2016-01-30, I’ve been trying most of what they discuss there over the past few days and I am seeing my FB experience much improved. There’s a lot you can do to fine tune and control things. I’ll see how the news feeds compare to my Twitter feed, etc.
