Facebook is, after all, 90% silliness. Since I enjoy silliness, it works pretty well for me.
Often I'll notice that some of my Facebook "friends" have joined some cause or other, and I'll see a notification like this: "John Doe (mythical Facebook friend) has become a fan of Denny's (or Walmart, or Krogers, or KFC, etc)," and this makes sense to me. But then, among my younger "friends", there will be a notification like this: "John Doe has become a fan of 'I hate it when i get a text, but its not from the person i wanted'."
This sort of activity leads me to believe it must not be difficult to make up something for people become a fan of, and I asked the question, on Facebook, "How does one start one of these "become a fan" things?"
Because I can think of many causes, both whimsical and serious, that I'd love to become a fan of.
My friend Celeste answered, "Just start a group; then people can become a fan."
While I was poking around trying to figure out how to start a group, Celeste, all in good fun I'm sure, started a group "Become a fan of Donna and her blog, 'Just Me'". Last time I checked, I had twenty-five fans.
But I still don't know how to start a group!
At least I have fans, though.
*added later: I've figured out how to start a group now. Maybe I could call my group "I finally found out how to start a group but now I'm out of the mood"?
