So I now have a Facebook account

OK, several months now. I hardly post, use it to read friends and family reports. But by mistake, several weeks ago, I "shared" the post from DU page. And then, a few weeks later, did it again this time on purpose. I thought it deserved sharing.

So now when I visit Facebook, these "Pics of the Moment" by EarlG are there, among other posts.

How does this happen? Don't mind, just curious. Some chocolate chips cookies, or something?

1. Are you subscribed to DU on Facebook

or following it?

3. I don't know whether I susbscribe to it

Doesn't being a DU member allow ones to visit?

I went there when DU was down, this year, not during the big election day hacking. I think that I even posted.

And then when I shared the images. Interesting, when I now went to DU Facebook, that "shared" image is still there, on top even though it has been many weeks since I shared it.

2. You might have selected to Follow DU.

Only you can see it unless you choose to share the posts. Or if you Like them.

4. Couple of reasons...

If you "like" a page on Facebook, you will receive their posts. So, if you "like" DU, you see DU posts. Also, you see your friends' posts. If Earl is a "friend" you will see his posts.

5. Thanks. Yes, I suppose I "liked" that picture

This, I think, also explains to me the Russians "news." I have a lot of ads on the side of the screen - Meryl Street and Robert Radford got married, the Obamas are divorcing, etc. so for a while I thought: why would anyone accept this?

But then there are news stories from other sources, like Du and the WSJ which I know are legit. Thus, if the Russians inserted bogus stories I can see why many thought they were true.

Oh well.
