Green Room - Week 1 - Day 10

Finally there is a useful app on Facebook!

Find out who to unfriend!   https://www.facebook.com/browse/friended_fans_of/?page_id=120173881339154

Or maybe you unfriend anyone NOT on that list!


While you are carting people off to Social Media camps, there is a vote going on!

So make sure to support your favorites! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/869815.html and http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/869530.html are where the action is happening!

Who is surprising you on "Wow. Their entry is really good - but they don't have a lot of votes!" front?
Now is the time to speak up on their behalf, to make sure people go check it out!

I'm still reading. Slow process but I'm enjoying everything. AW

I've read everything and have voted and am now trying not to obsessively check the poll.

Good thing I have work in a couple of hours. xD

I'm jealous. I'm still reading, but should finish this morning, and then the vote. I know what you mean about checking the poll all the time. There is no cure.
Dec. 10th, 2015 01:56 pm (UTC)
I usually save my poll for past in terms of voting and I didn't this time, and it was an instant reminder of why I don't vote in MY poll right away. Because I check. Obsessively. Run numbers, obsessively. It's a fun time.

I only managed to finish all of the reading because I had the day off, yesterday. I think I'd still be scrambling to finish it all if I had been at work. (No LJ at work -- it's blocked. Sigh.)

From where I'm sitting, it looks like formatting is hurting some people this week.
Dec. 10th, 2015 02:48 pm (UTC)
Anyone struggling with the CSS and HTML side of formatting issues, I'd be glad to help. I can change your journal layout and style to help make entries more readable, or themed, or anything else. Free, of course. Let me know how I can help!

I'm burning my way through reading, keeping my list. Unfortunately, I'm not having a chance to comment as much as I like.

In related news, sharing a computer SUCKS.
Dec. 10th, 2015 05:57 pm (UTC)
Okay, I have to ask. I've seen people posting screen shots of "Friends who like ___" and I want to know how you even find the friends who like ____ thing to begin with. I mean, obviously, I want to unfriend a few people if they're liking the wrong things, because I'm shallow. Or maybe not.

Still, how????
Dec. 10th, 2015 06:12 pm (UTC)
Go to the page of "the thing you want to look at" (say Nickelback) and copy the numbers (that's the page ID) part of the address.

For instance: The address for LJ Idol's FB page is https://www.facebook.com/LJ-Idol-120173881339154/?fref=ts

Which is why to find out who among your friends "likes the page" you would go to https://www.facebook.com/browse/friended_fans_of/?page_id=120173881339154

Just discovered sometimes I'm not actually "replying" to a comment, but just leaving another comment on a post that comes under the last one. If I've done this to you, and have missed replying to you, I apologize. Not accustomed to being social on LJ, but working on it.

I've read and voted on all the individual entries, and am about 1/3 through the teams-- so making my way there. I'll reach it by the end of voting time, but the early weeks always kill me in terms of how much reading there is. I can't get anything else done!

Facebook. I hate it SO much. I rarely visit it, and almost never update. One of my sisters isn't even on it. She says that she sees her actual friends in person, or talks to them on the phone. ;) Fair enough!
Dec. 10th, 2015 07:30 pm (UTC)
Reading done! So many cool pieces!

Hey wickedsin I enjoyed your piece but your Capcha code is so hard to solve I couldn't leave a comment. I may be the only idiot, or you may want to disable that a bit during Idol :)

We also have blind contestants, and readers, so hopefully there is a way to leave comments *without* going through the CAPTCHA process.

I finished all of the Individual entries last night and was so grateful for all the byes. If I'm going to make it through the group entries I might need to knock it off with leaving the longer comments. I just have a lot to say.

Completely read, totally commented and only had to extend my lunch hour by two hours to do this. How do the rest of you do this? Egads.

Oh, and regarding Trump. Trump isn't really the issue, he's just the ugly face of the issue (I mean that metaphorically, though his face is literally ugly too). The issue is that people are being encouraged to be racist in public and being made to feel like that is a totally socially acceptable way to behave. I know we don't do ourselves any favors by cutting off contact with people who have differing views than us, but how much of a nuanced conversation can you have about issues when a person's main point of view is "All Muslims Bad" and they won't look at evidence or talk respectfully?

I mean, at some point, the only way to deal with open racists is to shun them. Keeping them on our friends lists certainly doesn't seem to be discouraging them.
Dec. 10th, 2015 10:52 pm (UTC)
This sums up how I felt when Trump made his first comments re: Mexicans (I am Chicana).

I do believe that, on some level, it's worth engaging with people and trying to change hearts and minds. I also believe that I have to take care of myself, and that some people are never going to come around to my point of view—that, honestly, they're going to continue thinking that I'm subhuman or that questioning their rhetoric means I'm "uppity", and it's not worth my time.
