TIP OF THE WEEK
Mimi: When you run into trouble on Facebook Marketplace, turn off the data on your phone. Then open the Facebook App and click the Marketplace; you might get a message that says something went wrong and try again, but don’t press it. Click back, turn your data on, go back to Facebook, and click the try again button. At that point you should be able to get back into to the Marketplace. First thing you should do is find any ads in your support inbox that they’ve flagged and just get rid of them. Also, clean out your cache on your laptop, everything but passwords.
Mark: If you feel like you need to take a nap in the afternoon, take no more than an hour long nap and nothing after 4:00. It will benefit you if you have a sleep deficit. If you’re having trouble going to sleep at night, skip the nap, caffeine and alcohol.
