DigameXtra on Facebook On Hold: Due to again being locked out of my FB accounts  for the umpteenth time I cannot continue to post daily DigameXtra issues on FB. I am working on it but FB support is almost useless, their identity confirmation won’t send my mobile the reset code, I don’t know anyone they show me photos of, I can’t send them a scan of my utility bill as it’s included in my rent, and evidently I don’t know my own birthday! To be honest I am ready to quit FB all together. I will update in a few days. -Ed.

“DigameXtra may quit Facebook” announcement feedback: Hi Naythan. First thank you for giving us DigameXtra – it’s very useful and I appreciate the time you put into it.
However, I was surprised today to read that it’s also available via Facebook. I sadly left Facebook recently after many years because I think it’s (understandably for its size) out of control. I had become sick and tired of shared news stories that when I checked were completely untrue. These were more often than not racist stories. I reported them each time to Facebook and even provided links proving they were untrue. Not only did the posts not get taken down, I had no response at all from FB.
I would be much happier to know that DigameXtra was no longer available on Facebook.
Thanks again for your time
Best regards Linda/Caleta, mcleod.linda AT gmail DOT com
(So far no one has written in support of remaining on FB. Personally I strongly agree with Linda, but I need to consider what’s best for the blog. FB does provide good SEO that helps keep DigameXtra at the top of search results. No time to deal with it now, will update on this soon. -Ed.)


Message for Ian and Linda from Scotland: To Ian and Linda from Scotland who stay in Frigliana, my phone was stolen with all my contact nos, please contact Barbara/Competa tel: 0034 722545127.
