More about Facebook

Linda is of course right in that you can  view certain business pages on Facebook, without having an account. However, I do not agree with her optimistic last line: “So you can click any Facebook link here on Dígamextra and find out all about unwanted dogs, restaurants – whatever!”
A post may end with something like “see more on our Facebook account”. Unfortunately you often end up disappointed. There may be nothing about the subejct of that post – or any other useful info! At least not easily to be found. When that has happened to you too often, you stop clicking on Facebook links! Facebook sucks! Life is too short for that!




Services- Complaint

Time to pay the annual ”black-mail ” fee to the post office,

How can it be ”free” to deliver mail on scooters and vans, when they charge nearly 100 euros for us to collect our mail.

Surely it must be cheaper for one person to pop the mail into boxes than several persons to travel miles delivering it.

We don’t even get to own the box and there is not even a place to park a car,

So you risk a ”fine” if you stop to pick up your mail.

Moan over for 2017.Malcolm from the Campo.

Photos must be in  JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
