#ff Man is a Social Being...

Although, like everyone else, I have some concerns when it comes to Facebook privacy, from time to time I search Facebook for someone interesting to friend whom I don't know personally. I think it adds to the mix and matter of social networking. Life (and internet social networking) is often about DISCOVERY via reaching out to others. Digital Grifter Schnooks know this [Schnook 1][Schnook 2] and work it to their advantage, harboring less than honorable intentions, which yield unhappy results.
Wanna delete that Facebook account? Here's how.
Speaking of DISCOVERY, did humans cross from eastern Africa to Arabia around 130,000 years ago? This could be an addendum to the excellent PBS documentary THE JOURNEY OF MAN.

The latest wave of PR updates has shaken and stirred the blogosphere. I found a nice site for investigating your blog backlinks.

About #ff

Follow Friday is simply an understood way of promoting other people on Twitter – anyone you think your followers should also be following for any reason.

How to participate in Follow Friday:
1. type Follow Friday and/or #ff (upper or lower case is fine) anywhere within a tweet
2. list the @name of the Tweeters you recommend

If you want your Follow Fridays to be more effective (increase how many new followers they get), you can also craft a reason why you’re giving them the Follow Friday and why you think they’ll be a great follow for all your followers.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
