Beyond Facebook

Presently, I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles. So every day, I go along the street and tell passersby what I have eaten, how I feel, what I have done the night before, and what I plan to do later.

I give them pictures of my family, my cat, plus me gardening and spending time in my garage. I also listen to their conversations and I tell them I love them.

AND IT WORKS! . I already have 3 people following me: 2 police officers and a psychiatrist.

Admire their children and you could add a probation officer to your list of professional followers.

Don't forget to hand out inspirational quotes, usually accompanied by a picture of a minion & "money bags" post cards

There are also the quotes and images that you must share if you care, and the obligatory links to dodgy websites that we all know are dodgy but still cannot help but have a peek!

Don't take photos in restricted areas or you can add armed police to the list.

Don't forget that they must share some certain images so they get good luck, or be cursed if they don't.

You may want to consider an old fashioned "sandwich board" with a list of friends on one side and adverts on the other.

You might also want to practice your "smilies"

Unfortunately the local high street has won major drawback. When speaking too reel people and 'liking' there statuse's you don't get to right anything down, so their is no chant's to practice yore homophone's and misplaced apostrophe's on them!





(Out of interest, can anyone here tell me how many homophones and misplaced apostrophes I have used? )
