Facebook: Now you can edit!

It was nice to be able to edit your comments when you replied to someone on Facebook (implemented in 2012), but I always wanted to be able to correct me my FB post errors which often occurred when I was in a hurry. When I returned and reviewed the post, I would be red faced by my mistake!  Ugh!

So as of September, 2013, you can now edit your posts and your comments and see a history of those edits, just in case someone tries to switch the post to something different than the original meaning.

  On your post click on the arrow on the upper right corner of your post to get the drop down menu. Select Edit.

You will get the opportunity to make your changes then click Done Editing.

Looking at the top of your post, under your name, you will see where it is now listed as edited. Clicking on "edited" will bring up a list of the changes on your post.  

The feature works on almost any Facebook post type, including status updates, links, photos, and videos. We were, however, able to pinpoint some restrictions when it comes to link posts. If you share a link, you cannot edit it.

Even with this minor issue, it is nice to see FB make these small changes to make our FB time a little bit better.  Now there is no excuse for gramatical errors or typos, right?  Who am I kidding. Until I can afford a full-time editor, mistakes will happen.  Thanks Facebook for allowing us to clean up after ourselves.

Typing Exercises

You took typing but need to increase your typing speed? Job interview or just because? Typing has become critical in this computer based world, not only from the workplace but also resumes and communication now rely on the keyboard instead of pen and paper. I took typing in high school before corrective ribbons were on the electronic typewriters. I was lucky to get to 15 WPM, and that was on a very good day. My typing teacher was awesome. It really wasn't her fault that I just was not that coordinated and often made mistakes reducing my numbers to single digits. Fast forward to today, I teach Microsoft Office and often encourage my students to start or refresh their typing skills by increasing their speed. The website I use for  "learning to type" is typingclub.com where you can easily learn the basics to more advanced techniques. Yes there are advertisements although you can pay for an ad-free premium. I don't benefit from this suggestion, but found the 684 lessons

"Hello, This is Bridget (Or Rachel) from Card Holder Services"

When it comes to running a business, the last thing you need is to be inundated with junk phone calls and the number one pest is "Card Holder Services". Matter of fact, the FTC considers "Bridget from Card Holder Services" to be Enemy #1 . Well, the FTC may not have solved this ongoing problem but I have found help from the customer reviews at Amazon.com. I searched online, then narrowed it down to a couple of options. I was very excited when I found the CPR Call Blocker capable of blocking 1200  (yes, 1200) numbers. Robocallers can change their number and I still can block them!  I reduced the robocallers to my business line within a couple of days of adding this device. CPR Call Blocker V108 - 1200 Number Capacity - World #1 - Block Telemarketing Calls Now! (Amazon.com Affiliate Link but personal review without any payment. Just passing on a great tip!) The setup took about 15 minutes for me (some said it only took a couple of minutes in the reviews). The ins
