I Just Don't Get Facebook

So I never wanted to get on Facebook.  As a busy mom and designer - and chef and maid and farmer and gardener and sub teacher and chicken whisperer and goat herder and laundress and friend and wife (need I say more) I just don't have time to get tangled up with long lost friends from High School.  I hear my pals talk about their time on Facebook and I just don't want to go there.  But I am trying to put together a Facebook Fan page for my business "The Stitchin' Coop" where I sell PDF patterns.  But quite frankly, I just don't get it.  I'm trying to figure out how to post the right pictures and write great information.  But really I don't get the appeal of Facebook, the way it's set up I mean.  It doesn't seem user friendly somehow.  Maybe it's the tech challenged part of me talkin' but  it could have been designed with more pizzaz, I think.  Better layout, different design, maybe more blog-like.  What do you think?  Are you  on Facebook?  What do you think about the way it's designed?


  1. It's not the tech-challenged part of you. Facebook makes no sense to me either and my page shows it. Blogs, websites, even Twitter, make more sense. I've gotten more traffic on my blog from Twitter than all of my traffic on Facebook. Good luck!


  2. Ha! Thanks Nancy. I started a Twitter account several years ago but let it go while I was busy raising my boys. My youngest is a 5th grader now so I have a bit more time to devote to Twitter. Trying to put it all together now. There's just something about the way Facebook is set up. Not very appealing if you ask me!
