Why should I take the content of this article seriously, when the author does not know how or when to use “your” versus “you’re”, a third grade vocabulary lesson of word usage — ref.: “because your losing friends”. The other most misused words are Their/There/They’re; that lesson (on Contractions) were studied no later than the fourth grade. I hesitated to read further, after the first error appeared in sentence #1. I know it can be better, if anyone cared at all about the quality of THEIR (not there or they’re) work.

Don’t stop your good work because of the grammar police. The semantic info is clear, unless your purpose is to find fault.
Nice clear instructions, despite the typos.
Thanks.

When I tried to access my Faacebook Account and view Notifications at home the following website popped up (NOTE: I’m not sure of the beginning letters so am providing two:

FBSTATIC-a.akamaihd.net…
OR
FBSTATUS-a.akamaihd.net…

Are these viruses? Has my home computer been hacked?
I was NEVER able to pull up the Facebook Notifications and my Firefox was in a tab!
