Champagne corks are popping at Pensito Review because we just got our 50th Facebook “Like” today! Our thumbs are UP.
O.K., 50 might not sound like much to those of you with 637 “Friends,” but when you understand our past ambivalence toward Facebook, you’ll understand why it’s a big deal (not to be confused with health care reform, which is a BFD).
You see, Jon, our reluctant web guy, hates Facebook. Trish is O.K. with it, and Buck, who is actually a social media pioneer, just phones it in via Twitter with TweetDeck or HoopieSweetie or CheatPost or whatever program that is he uses for social networking.
It also didn’t help that, much as Jon hated Facebook a couple of years ago, he did put us on there. This was back when groups, organizations, etc. had “Friends” instead of “Likes.” So now we are stuck with www.facebook.com/pensitoreview going to the discontinued former page. And Facebook won’t let us reassign that perfect URL to our new page. We’re trying to think up a good new unique URL. The one it definitely won’t be is www.facebook.com/mypensito. Lord knows, we get enough penis jokes as it is.
But it seems like since we actually began MAKING AN EFFORT, it’s helped. We’ve added two “Likes” in the past 24 hours so maybe the gods of Facebook sense our change of heart and are smiling upon us.
Now we need you. See the tiny, tasteful, microscopic and monochromatic little Facebook icon directly under the search box? No? It’s at the top of the righthand column, just above the ad spot. Yes, there it is! Please click on it, and once you find us on Facebook, please, please, please “Like” us. Otherwise, how can you see pictures of what we had for lunch, hear details of our lives that make yours sound like a failure, and play Mafia Wars with us?
Just kidding about that last part, but do “Like” us!
