Je Suis Paul Eddington: Mundabor Is On Facebook Again.
I have written some time ago about Facebook and the problem in retrieving one’s own password.
As at times happens in life, I happened to remember the password, and after some initial hesitation from the Facebook site (they were a bit taken aback I was in West Virginia; well, they do not know I have moved there, obviously; how would they know…) I was given access to my old Facebook page, which was frozen in time to 21 December 2012 like it is Pompeii after the eruption.
Seventy-seven “friends” request were awaiting. I do not remember exactly Facebook “friend” rules, but as I am a friendly chap I accepted all of them; and as Facebook never asked me whether I know the chaps and gals personally, I think I will be fine.
I will now try to remember to post my blog posts on Facebook; I am thankful if anyone can give me an indication of any way to have a “one-click posting” instead of having to go through the tedious procedure of logging in, being asked by Facebook to complete my profile, which they always do, find the “wall”, being asked “what’s on your mind?” and post the blog post.
Twitter is, I must say, a much more streamlined experience: you log in once, and then you post with two clicks. No copying and pasting of ulrs, and no waiting for the post to display properly. Click, click, done.
Anyway, I am on Facebook now.
As Facebook does not accept pseudonyms like Mundabor you will find me under my – obviously – real name: Paul Eddington. Paul Eddington is also – being my real name – the name I use on Twitter, and it always cracks me up when people call me “Paul”, because on my twitter account I am rather “Mundabor”.
My real name is easy to remember, because a famous British TV actor of the past had exactly the same name. Isn’t that a happy coincidence! In the video above, Paul Eddington plays an unforgettable Prime Minister.
‘Course, Ronald Reagan would have been easier still to remember to my mainly US-American audience. But alas, I am not Ronald Reagan.
Je suis Paul Eddington, aka “Mundabor”.
