But I can't tag people or pages from anywhere inside of the app. Thanks
It works ok on my cell, but lacks 'share to page' options. Can't tag people or pages. Photos appear full screen, with no option to see the whole image.. Select All, doesn't work. Copy/Paste fails too.
In brief, after a few days, I've sadly uninstalled and returned to the Facebook app.
Then get the Metal for Facebook and Twitter app. You won't regret it! Especially if your an older or cheap phone.
How many have i met? LOL, you wont believe me, but i try to set my minimum at one per week - that's a new person, someone that i've never met before.. There are times and places that i'm able to exceed that number of people, but i don't count them.. how long have i been doing this? 20+ years, probably 30, but 20 years ago i set that number and i've mostly kept up with the task. That's 7,300 individuals that i've interviewed and handed a dollar or more to, and often cigarettes also. I also do keep track of 'things' given, food, clothing, shoes, socks, back packs, tents.. most of those things come to me free, i just hand those on to someone else..
Why do i do these things? When i was in need, no one helped me. It pissed me off that even those places that i expected to find help at, turned me and others away. Or made it so hard to cooperate with, that complying, would have caused more harm. Yes, later i did use those resources, and yes, every single time, it set me back.
Back on topic - my new friend Lis, didn't reach out to me, i merely stumbled into her and read her story. And i want Y'all to read this story, knowing that i'm telling you, it's a common story. BAD Things happen to good people. It happens every day and their are vultures circling to capture and destroy these people. Read Lis' story here:
Quote: "Although the number of cops charged with murder or manslaughter sharply spiked last year, not a single officer was convicted for these unjustified deaths. With less cops killed in the line of duty in 2015, the number of people killed by police increased yet again.
The accumulated number of people killed by police in the U.S. last year remains between 986 and 1,200, with The Guardian currently totaling 1,138 victims. Although many disagree on the exact number of fatalities caused by cops, most concur that 2015 saw an escalation in both the total of people killed by police and the number of officers charged with murder or manslaughter.
Within the last decade, an average of five cops per year have been charged with murder or manslaughter in fatal on-duty shootings. Last year, that number more than tripled as 18 cops were arrested for unjustified shootings. This number does not comprise non-shooting homicides, including the six Baltimore officers charged with fatally severing Freddie Gray’s spine. Nor does it include the cops who will not face criminal charges for the deaths of Tamir Rice, Zachary Hammond, Natasha McKenna, Troy Goode, or Antonio Zambrano-Montes."

"Middle class folks were afraid that inflation would erode their savings, so they were more keen to approve draconian measures to cut wages and reduce public budgets. People on the lower rungs of the economic ladder felt the pain first. But eventually the middle class fell on the wrong side of the fence, too. Most of them became relatively poorer.
I suppose this shows the limits of democracy when information, knowledge, and ultimately power are unequally distributed.
LP: You’re really talking about birth of austerity and the way lies about public spending and budgets have been sold to the public. Why is austerity such a powerful idea and why do politicians still win elections promoting it?
OC: Austerity is so powerful today because it feeds off of itself. It makes people uncertain about their lives, their debts, and their jobs. They become afraid. It’s a strong disciplinary mechanism. People stop joining forces and the political status quo gets locked down.
Even the name of this tool, the “cyclically adjusted budget,” carries an aura of respect. It diverts our attention. We don’t question it. It creates a barrier between the individual and the political realm: it undermines democratic participation itself. This obscure theory validates, with its authority, a big economic mistake that sounds like common sense but is actually snake oil — the notion that the federal government budget is like a household budget. Actually, it isn’t. Your household doesn’t collect taxes. It doesn’t print money. It works very differently, yet the nonsense that it should behave exactly like a household budget gets repeated by politicians and policymakers who really just want to squeeze ordinary people."

"Decent people see tragedy and barbarism when viewing a terrorism attack. American politicians and intelligence officials see something else: opportunity.
Bodies were still lying in the streets of Paris when CIA operatives began exploiting the resulting fear and anger to advance long-standing political agendas. They and their congressional allies instantly attempted to heap blame for the atrocity not on Islamic State but on several preexisting adversaries: Internet encryption, Silicon Valley's privacy policies and Edward Snowden.
"The real objective is to depict Silicon Valley as terrorist-helpers for the crime of offering privacy protections to Internet users."
The CIA's former acting director, Michael Morell, blamed the Paris attack on Internet companies "building encryption without keys," which, he said, was caused by the debate over surveillance prompted by Snowden's disclosures. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) blamed Silicon Valley's privacy safeguards, claiming: "I have asked for help. And I haven't gotten any help."
Former CIA chief James Woolsey said Snowden "has blood on his hands" because, he asserted, the Paris attackers learned from his disclosures how to hide their communications behind encryption. Woolsey thus decreed on CNN that the NSA whistleblower should be "hanged by the neck until he's dead, rather than merely electrocuted."
In one sense, this blame-shifting tactic is understandable. After all, the CIA, the NSA and similar agencies receive billions of dollars annually from Congress and have been vested by their Senate overseers with virtually unlimited spying power. They have one paramount mission: find and stop people who are plotting terrorist attacks. When they fail, of course they are desperate to blame others."
