Have you been in such a state of absolute frustration at some tech snafu that you'd love to fly, or drive to queer bay California, walk into both Google and Facebooks HQ reach in and grab who ever it is that messed up your pages or such's settings by the throat and strangle them? Example, my contact list that usually appears to the far left of my main facebook cover page isn't showing. As such I can't see whose online or who ain't. So you go into settings but there's no listing for your problem. So you go to the HELP tab, ask a question, but guess what, they haven't a clue what your talking about. But hey it gets better, you post things in your groups, and pages, but you can't see them on YOUR newsfeed. Wuz up with that?
At times like this it really would be good to be able to place a frigging phone call to some tech guru at either company, Either Google or Facebook, and get some sort of serious action.
I have said it before and I'll say it again, the web might be kuel, but it can't ever replace that human connection of the brick and mortar business on main street. If you get good results and a good experience you can thank them, of course if something goes ary you can discuss the situation. It does not matter how dang much money you spend with these people these social tech giants, still can't see the forest for the trees.
The other day, I read about the President and CEO of Facebook, stopped at the Iowa 80 Truckstop. Wish I could have been there. After smacking him around a bit, I'd make some serious suggestions, like staffing a help desk center for the clients of Facebook, so when something goes sour there's a fix somewhere.
Any mile have a big day today, am putting off my trip to Wendell until early Wednesday, and doing some fixing on the General.
