comment Find Facebook status updates that have a Location
Huh. I think there used to be. If I can't edit some of these I guess this question is moot.

comment Why do I get so many unsolicited Facebook friend requests?
I can't speak to other Facebook users, but I can't remember the last time I got a friend request from someone I don't know. Then again, I think I have that restricted to "friends of friends".

comment Why do I get so many unsolicited Facebook friend requests?
As to "why", that's difficult to know. Do you have a common name? Is your profile picture obviously female?

comment If I replace a PDF file in Google Drive, will the share link stay the same, or will I have to give out a new one?
I don't know why this was migrated. It's not clearly about the web interface of Google Drive. You can get a "share" link directly from the PC app.

comment Google+ photo comments error: “Sorry, we are temporarily unable to post your comment. Please try again in a few minutes.”
What am I doing wrong? Probably nothing. A temporary glitch, perhaps? Have you tried with a different browser? Have you tried with AdBlock off? What about other extensions? It's been most of a day since you posted this. Is it still happening?
