    Ok, I'm back. Same problem -- I just logged into Facebook and had 98 new Notifications. This is notwithstanding the fact that I un-subscribed all of my friends last week. ARGH!!! :

    Do you have anyone on that "close friends" list? If so, either empty it by clicking on it and going to "manage list" (top right corner) or go to the "notifications" tab next to the "manage list" tab and click on it where you'll have the option to turn notifications off.

    Holy crap, I think you may have solved my problem! Thank you!
    Er, fingers crossed and all that

    Ok, I have another question: Why am I no longer seeing my friends' status updates in my Newsfeed? I get the same 3-4 people over and over, and not even my closest friends. One of them is a girl I haven't seen since college (and we were distant acquaintances at best then). I just. don't. get. it!

    There are lot of possibilities, Cheylana.

    First, are you looking at "Top Stories" or at "Recent Stories"

    Recent Stories should have everything.

    Also, be sure you haven't accidentally hidden anyone or applied a filter to your news feed that causes people to be hidden.

    Those are the most common problems... but there are other possibilities as well.

    Apparently the video was from 2 yrs ago, which is only going viral now.

    At least these people were being funny, I think:

    Hey, if my sister-in-law ever has a wedding, I could totally see her having to whip the iPhone out to answer a text in the middle of it. The only difference would be we would hear it go off and she would tell everyone to wait. Heck, she interrupted her dad saying grace at Christmas Eve dinner to answer a text one year, why not at her wedding?

    How do you post a youtube link on facebook so that the screen capture (photo) appears? Whenever I post a youtube link, only the URL appears...not the screen image that one would normally see. (People are less likely to click on a URL link than they are to something which shows something visual.)

    Did you try the share link via you tube? That's what I did to post a you tube link on Facebook and a picture popped up.

    If you share the video from Youtube, there should be a box pop up asking if you want to share the thumbnail image. You do. Make sure the box is checked and it should show up on your page.

    There used to be a way to see all the friends you've added recently. I can't find that any more. Anyone know how to get it? Though what I really want is to see all friends not in any lists (so I can put them in lists). So if there is a way to do that, that would be even better.

    I have a few very dumb questions.

    If I sign up for facebook, would I have to pay monthly fee?

    Is there a monthly fee for subscribing to others' face books?

    Our local newspaper has now changed its chatboard requirements. Now one can post only through a facebook account to discuss anything- like sports, politics related news. It means if I post from work, my employer will know that I posted during work hours (I only post during break periods). Is there a way to conceal my identity when posting from the FB account?

    Facebook is free and there is nothing to stop you opening an account under a fake name if you so wish.

    Did everyone lose their "close friends" group? And Family? Or just me?

    I lost both my "Beijing" group and my "family" group

    Already the biggest time suck ever, Facebook has taken things to a whole new level with Timeline. A visually beautiful way to showcase all of my photos, the places I've been to, things I've done, interactions I've had, all in precise chronological fashion. Must be providing lots more fodder for their privacy-infringing data crunchers.
