Facebook has changed its filtering settings yet again, and suddenly games I have previously blocked are showing up.
So my aunt has posted something about, "please change whatever setting so that you do NOT send me requests for your games--I want to use Facebook to keep in touch with people, and I don't really care if you need another trough for your barnyard or whatever. But do please keep sending me news and comments and photos."
And her sister, the other aunt, chimed in to say, "me too--especially photos!"
So my sis and I were talking about this, and we've decided we're going to start a new "game" and call if Lifeville. We'll write posts that look like Farmville or Cityville requests ("TootsNYC is playing Lifeville, the newest interactive game on Facebook. She needs a Recent Snapshot to complete her Family & Friends Scrapbook. If you send her one, you'll get a prize back!")
And the prize will be a post that says something like, "Thanks for sending TootsNYC a Recent Snapshot for her Family & Friends Scrapbook in Lifeville. here's your prize: a Virtual Hug!"
Today I took a pic of my son doing whatever he was doing at the time (playing XBox) and put it on my sis's wall with one of those, "Toots has sent you a Recent Snapshot--use it to complete your...."
We're going to do it back and forth to ourselves first, and then loop her in. Think she'll get it?
