Facebook Automation Trick

Facebook Automation Trick

Like many of you, I use Facebook for a lot of things. Much of the time it is to keep up with friends, but I do follow recommendations from people that are my "friends."

I have to say though, that at least for me, keeping up with posting status updates and stuff can be time consuming, especially since, god forbid, I don't have a "smart" phone. In fact my phone is quite dumb, and if I am not in front of a real computer, well, I am not connected.

I like it that way. I don't need the disturbances when I am not working on stuff. Believe me, nothing is that important. If it is, whoever is needing to tell me something has my number and can call me.

You see, I grew up in a time when there were no cell phones, in fact, there were no portable phones. We had a phone in the kitchen and one in my moms room. There was even a time when I lived out in the country (Rainbow, California), that we had a 4 way party line, That's right, 4 housed shared a single phone line.

So you can see my reason to avoid spending a few grand a year on a smart phone and plan. I am not tech averse, far from it, I just don't see the need to be connected 24/7.

Anyway, I wrote this post because I found a cool little trick to automate some of the drudgery of posting status updates to Facebook. Some of you may know this, but I bet more than a few of you don't. I recorded this little video to show you how it is done.
