I'm a humble individual, love animals and love to paint and draw. Interested in tattoos, gardening, building things and making things, as well as other kinds of technical activities like programming. Thanks for stopping by.
I'm using this journal just to get out my ideas as I expect few if any to read.  And I kinda like that.

You know, sometimes I hate Facebook.  I really do.  The past doesn't go away.  I figured something out about the search bar mechanism.  The search bar mechanism has an algorithm whereby the top search results depend on: how much communication you have with that person, whether you've visited their page, whether they are your friends, and then whether they are friends of friends.  Their view of your page affects this algorithm, quite substantially actually.  How do I know this?  Because there's a past lurking on my Facebook.

You see, if you don't visit someone else's page, and I mean you don't whatsoever.  Nothing.  No click, not even a quick view and for months it's like this, the person will continue to fall in the top bar search results to the point that you have to type in the person's full name.  This is good, keeps the results clean and you quickly peruse to find a friend and check out their front page.  However if you start typing in someone and then this person comes up into your top list of results and you have done nothing whatsoever... they're lurking!  It's actually kinda cool that I found this out but nonetheless.

I'm hating Facebook for that algorithm.  I think I may just stop using it.  It's a waste of energy and time and the past doesn't want to disappear into the ether.  Besides I have shit tons of things to do.  Facebook was kinda my news reel because I "Like" a lot of news and intellect stuff but small things like that algorithm makes it unusable.
