Is Facebook the right place to post about your "counter protest?"

Not many, but a few folks "checking in" at Chick-fil-A. Kind of annoying to have to see my co-workers political protests.

I ended up checking in at Whataburger. Too subtle?

My Facebook page is filled with political stuff.

That's how I pick my friends.

@Joe Nation,
Friends, yes.

Co-workers, not so much.

@DrewDad,
oh, I filter out my co-workers. They see all the running stuff and how-I-am-love-stuff but none of the Let's dump the GOP stuff.

And I don't see theirs.

Fools . . . if you didn't have any friends, you wouldn't have these problems. (I've only got "Joe" as a friend because The Girl signed me up.)

Aww man, what's Whataburger been up to? I really like their burgers. I don't want to have to boycott them too.

Making delicious, non-chicken sandwiches.

Also, not blathering on about their politics.

Also, remarkably free of easily-led teabaggers.

Also, it's a subtle statement that I am not at Chick-fil-A.

Very subtle, making it very excellent.

@DrewDad,
I would think that a check in at Five Guys Burgers would be a more appropiate protest to a Chick-Tal-A Ban checkin.

Damn. I wish I'd thought of that.

This is interesting for me. I go to Facebook, I wouldn't know how to check into any of these sites. All I know about FaceBook is some people who've befriended me (most of whom I know either from the real world or from A2k) post some stuff that I can easily see and read and comment on, if I wish. What else is that stupid site good for? How do you "check in" at, say, Chicken-filla-A or Club 21 or Caesar's Palace, Las Vegas or whatever?

@Lustig Andrei,
When you post a status update, it allows you to choose a location if you want to do so. It's one of the options at the bottom of the window that opens when you start typing a status update.

@DrewDad,
Oh.

Thank you, DrewDad.









What's a status update and why would I be posting it? I go to facebook only when I get an e-mail msg that someone has posted something on my wall or one of my "friends" is having a birthday or whatever.

@DrewDad,
I usually check in when I'm going to the toilet.

We don't have Chick-fil-A over here in the UK, but if we did I would boycott them, because they clearly don't know how to pronounce 'fillet.'

Apparently, according to the Cambridge Dictionary, the English pronounce filet very nearly as we do.

@Setanta,
That's because 'filet,' is a French word which we only use in French Cuisine. 'Fillet' is an English word and is pronounced correctly.

"Fillet" [sic] is not, however, an American word. The Cambridge Dictionary entry provides a pronunciation guide. It appears that they did not consult you in advance. How silly of them.

@Setanta,
I imagine they don't get out much. American word? No such thing me old mucker, unless we're talking Apache or similar.
