The Group Sex on Facebook

For various reasons, I've started a few Facebook groups. Today, I'm going to tell you about two of them.

The Modified HireMICHAELforHamiltonIsland.com Facebook Group
The HireMICHAELforHamiltonIsland.com facebook group was my most recent Facebook group creation.  I started it as part of my campaign to get "The Best Job in the World".

When I didn't get shortlisted for the job, the group no longer had a reason to exist.  I decided to revamp it and it became the official Michael's Meanderings Facebook Group.  

I messaged all 375 members to let them know that I didn't get shortlisted and that I had changed the name and purpose of the group. I watched and waited for the mass exodus.  As I expected, people started leaving the group.   Well, eight of them did, anyway. Then, something unexpected happened - four more people joined!  As of this entry, there are only three fewer members than when the HireMICHAELforHamiltonIsland campaign was on.

I feel loved.

The Group "Sex" on Facebook
Speaking of love, I love to mess with the auto-sentence features on websites and software applications.  Auto-text is clever, but it's also pretty stupid.  What could be more fun then, than being cleverer and stupider than auto-text?

Early on in my Facebooking days, I noticed that the mini-feeds could be manipulated in interesting and, sometimes, humourous ways.

I decided that stunning pronouncements in my mini-feed like "Joe Blow joined the group YOUR IN ENGLAND NOW... SO SPEAK FRIGGIN ENGLISH!!!1" or "Joe Blow joined the group I Like to Pick My Nose" would be much more entertaining if they read "Joe Blow joined the group sex."

And so, I started a group called, simply, "sex".

It's members come and go, but there have been about 35 members who have been engaged in the group sex for well over a year now2.

If you're looking for a little bit of good, clean, fun and want to give your friends a chuckle when they see in their mini-feed that you "joined the group sex", then join the group sex today!  While you're there, invite all of your friends to join you!

As these things go, the more the merrier!

1Yes, that really is how the group's name is spelled...
2No, those puns weren't intentional. Not at all...

"...but there have been about 35 members who have been engaged in the group sex for well over a year now."

I was going to say those people must be pretty tired by now.
