I’m trying to make friends outside of Facebook while using the same principles.
So, I’ve been walking down the street telling passers-by what I’ve eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I’ve done the night before, what I’ll be doing later and with whom.
I give them pictures of my family, my dog and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch and doing what anybody and everybody is doing every day.
I also listen to their conversations, give them the “thumbs up” and tell them I like them.
And it works!
Just like Facebook, I already have four people following me: two police officers, a private investigator and a psychiatrist!
