Whether you like it or not, social media is a huge part of our lives. This is especially true if you run a business. If you get locked out of your Facebook account, it can cost you, customers, and friends.

Saturday morning, I woke up and opened my Facebook app on my phone, to see what had happened overnight. My app was logged out, which was super weird since I never log out of it. You can see some of the madness that I've been going through to prove my identity and gain access to my account.

As I write this, I am still locked out of Facebook. Now, I know that some of you would be thrilled if social media just went away. I'm not one of those people. I enjoy seeing updates from friends and family and sharing my pics. Not to mention that Facebook is a huge way that we connect with our listeners.

 "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." -Albert Einstein

I feel like I'm living in a scene from Groundhog Day. No matter what I've tried, nothing helps me log into my Facebook account. Eventually, I end up at the same place, getting the same error message. It's also very disturbing to think that someone may have taken over my personal page. Before something like this happens to you, I suggest reading up on Two Factor Authentication, or 2FA, and SAVE your photos and videos in the cloud.

Then & Now - Evansville's Washington Square Mall Through the Years

Evansville is home to a lot of unique buildings including the first enclosed retail shopping center in Indiana. Yes, our very own Washington Square Mall was the place to be when it opened in 1963. If you walk through the mall today, you would never guess how alive the shops were, even through the 1980s. Enjoy this walk down memory lane I've put together, and maybe someday there will be new life inside 5011 Washington Ave.
