Facebook is getting silly with its attempts to show users only what it thinks they are interested in. Users should have the right to filter content, not Facebook.
So, it is with this thought in mind that I will no longer share anything “original” on Facebook — not photos and not even the occasional antsy one-liners.

Speedy (looking surprised that didn’t get it): “Third World. Pag humangin, mabagal internet. Paga umulan, mabagal internet. Pag kumidlat, mabagal internet. Pag lumindol, mas mabagal internet.”
Oh, right, I sometimes forget.
The NCCA announces the death of Susan Calo Medina.
