From Gerald R. Lucas

Back on Facebook

So, the Norman Mailer Society group on Facebook has been getting some spam posting, and the moderator can’t effectively take care of it, so I had to reactivate my Facebook account today. I was wondering if I even could, and—silly me!—of course Facebook will not delete anything. I was able to log right back in as if I never even left in 2018.

I took care of the Society group issues and made it private. I saw that I had other groups, too, and I pretty much just deleted them since they were no longer applicable or potentially useful. The MGA Media, Culture & the Arts group was still there, but apparently not used anymore. Deleted. I also had groups for LitMUSE, Big Jelly, and QkCons. Deleted. With all housekeeping done, I looked around a bit.

I decided to post about the upcoming publication of Lipton’s to see who might still be around. I received some hellos and comments, so I might stick around and use FB for a while. I don’t know. It’s pretty insipid, really, and potentially a huge waste of time. That said, it’s fun to see what everyone is up to.
