Hey Kim – enjoyed your update as always. Wanted to let you know I clicked on the link to the Truth Serum study and got “You 404’d it. Gnarly, dude.” Same thing happened with another link in the second part of your update.

Hey Kim,
Haven’t encountered the Malware yet. The Facebook public and privacy changes are making me a little nuts because I get a lot of those males popping up. I just delete them. Or sometimes share it with David for a big laugh.
As for Facebook monetizing their audience, I think it is something they are trying to do and may succeed?
The other rule about the cover image…I feel the less words the better.
Wonder where that came from?
Thanks for the link of the “Fan Only Engagement” Need to check that out!
Off to check the links you have given. Thanks so much for keeping us posted and good to see you feeling better.
