Many Thanks :)

Must read the books or watch the movies. I miss so many of these little joke/quotes ;)

In this situation I would have told him either in person or over the phone. However, based on what you have shared, you were not rude. He is the rude one.

I think "I'm not an owl!" is a perfect response.

And if he wants the benefits of FB, then he needs to join it, not expect you to play Pepper Potts to his Tony Stark.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

It's only perfect if he's a Harry Potter fan.  I had absolutely no idea what that phrase was about until someone upthread explained it.

I'm surprised he hasn't told you to make him a sandwich, too.  If the owl thing doesn't work (I only vaguely got it from having seen the movies), try, "Dude, I'm not your secretary."

The really stupid thing is, that if he wanted, he could totally use FB just as a email type service.

He could simply friend the people he wants, make himself unfriendable by anybody else, make himself unfindable, and lock down his setting so can't be tagged in pictures or whatever.

In short, if he customised his profile adequately, he could use FB exactly for what he wants and nothing more.
If it's that he objects to using FB at all (because he doesn't like the company or whatever), then it's pretty funny that he asks you to use it in a way that benefits him. It's sort of like saying, "I'm a vegetarian, but if you're buying, I'll have the steak.  >:D"

Send him this explanation.  All of the bolded. Modified, of course.  And no, you were not rude at all.
