I Quit Facebook
I have several reasons which have been getting stronger over the last several weeks. I quit for some of the same reasons before, but decided to come back after a short while. This time, however, I have a few more reasons, and they’re becoming more important reasons. Anyway, I’m not going to go into details for any of the reasons. What I will say, however, is that I didn’t quit for just one single reason, or because of any single person or group of people. The sum of all my reasons far outweighs the pros of keeping it.
The technical way I quit is that I changed my password first of all. You may ask how that would help anything if I’m the one that changed it? I opened a text editor and ran my fingers across the keyboard in random sequence. The letters and numbers that came out had no meaning to me. I copied that from the text editor to my password prompt and saved the new password. I then closed the text editor without saving the file. I couldn’t remember it now to save my life.
For photos, I’m going to see how Flickr does for me, and I’m going to try out Google’s Picasa also. If I have something I want to post about, I’ll put it here on my blog. Feel free to keep up with me here, and I’ll do my best to post more regularly.
Facebook is handy for a lot of things, but it isn’t worth it to me.
