New Facebook Fan Page

Tweet I’m very anti-Facebook, but I decided to try something new and actually set up a Facebook fanpage. If it turns out to be useful and I can figure out cool uses for it, I’ll keep it going. If not, I won’t. So this is basically a trial period, so let’s see how it goes. [...]

My role would be to offer advice on why men are the way they are from the male point of view. The “audition” process involved answering 2 questions from women. [...]
