It appears that some of our users are unsure of how the internet works. The internet, my friends, is a big, scary place if you’re not sure how it works. It’s our goal at This Is La Vergne to show you the light.
First, let’s talk about some things that the internet is. It sure is a place for you to speak your mind. Something pisses you off? Feel free to complain all you want. But there’s a caveat to that: There are other people on the internet as well. That means that they might not like what you have to say, and they might argue with you. You might not like that, but that’s how the internet works.
People might joke with you, or use snark. You can sometimes tell when people are joking, because they might use smilies such as 😉 or 😀 or the ever-present 🙂 On the other hand, they might not use a smiley. The best practice is to assume they’re joking until they tell you otherwise. This will greatly reduce your possible anger at the internet. Not sure of what snark is? It’s a combination of “snide” and “remark”.
We’re going to “Unlike” WKRN on Facebook as an example. (Don’t worry, WKRN! We still love you, I’ll go back and “like” you when the example is over!)
First, find a status update from the page you want to unlike. Go over to the right hand part of the status update, and hover over it with your cursor. An X will appear, like this:
Now, click on the X and then a menu will drop down. Choose “Unlike”, and you will not have to see This Is LaVergne in your facebook feed ever, ever again.
Don’t worry, you won’t be hurting my feelings one bit if you leave, unless I like you. And chances are good that I don’t like you. 😉 <——–see what I did there? That’s called, “joking”.
