When something you don’t like comes along frequently on your Facebook feed, like some annoying meme, there is no way to filter it out at the moment. It’s a feature the Facebook Newsfeed sorely lacks, which’s presence could be highly valued by its users.
Reflect on 2013 as if it were an awards ceremony. Below are some “awards” that you can grab as text, then fill in the answers in regular case text so the award names stand out in all caps. Do it as a note, series of tweets, or something to share. Leave out and add what you want to customize to illustrate and share what you want of your 2013 year in review. I guarantee you it’ll be far more interesting than anything Facebook or any other site would come up with for your Year in Review summary!
Leave your note as a draft if you need more than one sitting to fill it all in. It could be a lot of thinking for some people to get some of these answers!
GISHWHES, or The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt The World Has Ever Seen!, is a global community of individuals (94 countries and growing!) that “gather” online once a year, form international teams, and then go out into the real world and create “art” the likes of which the world has never seen.
One of the things that come from this is people reaching out to other people. New friendships, or just Facebook friendships, are born as a result. I think they should award a point for every one new friend made. Cap it at something like 50 and have people document it somehow. It’s not a lot of points, and probably hardly even worth the effort. However, it’s an easy 50 points and the true value lies in reiterating to people that they just made 50 new friends because of the contest!
There might be a Guiness World Record in there somewhere, too, I’d bet, if the documentation is done reasonably well enough. Helps earn and validate the points.
Don’t you think that’s worth the 50 points?
Facebook has been rolling out options of actions, feelings and such with their status updates for a little while now. However, as anything with a choice, there are limitations. That said, there are a fair number of choices with the feelings from which you can choose, but they are still pretty generic. Fortunately, Facebook has allowed users to add their own feelings. That’s my challenge to you, should you want to accept it.
