Facebook Wars - Poem by Jerry Behr Number 2
A few years back I started to learn about computers and word
processing which opened up a whole new world for me.The computer
allowed me to rearrange sentences and words where ever
I liked and learned how to write my own poetry book.
So that I could have good poetry and anybody else can have a look.
At the time I had a nice wife and a new puppy Buffy and life was all
right. I gave Janet lifts to church which she was involved with, she also
had her own computer a Pentium 111, and I had a Pentium 1V.
We lived in Sadleir, we were not connected to the internet yet.
I connected the internet just before we had to move and left.
We moved to Cartwright and after we settled down I continued with poetry writing and started to explore the internet and learned many new
things.I found internet sites for poets; I also have my own blog site. Again it opened a whole new world for me. Between my wife and I we knew each others passwords so our computers were “open” to each others reach.For a whole year I developed as a poet and wrote many poems and life was all right. One day in June, Janet decided without me knowing connected to facebook which at first it seemed harmless enough, we even found some
relatives and old friends, and it was for free so I didn’t object.
Keeping in touch with friends, Facebook seemed like a nice project.
However, Janet started to explore Facebook more widely then she discovered Farmville which is a game supplied by Google who put it as part of Facebook so all people would most likely play it, including my wife. This Farmville game is highly interactive with other Facebook people who could give each other animals and put them on each others farms where they could live.Downloads and uploads on my computer increased dramatically I started to get worried I feared being paralyzed by her downloads. However, even with her
full blazing away with Farmville the downloads reached 1,000 megabytes I am allowed 3,000 so I’m not threatened that way. Problems arose with menaces,
Farmaville was taking more and more of her time with the game making fences.I started to realize the addictive nature of Google’s game Farmville.I started to realize there are advertisements involved e.g. Jack Danials.So for Google’s multi billion dollar industry can make money from addicted players. Undoubtedly Google research teams would have researched how to increase the addictions for the general populations Google searched.©
