Dumped Facebook for good a few weeks back. Since then Facebook has come under more scrutiny for its business practices. Of course, it didnt have to be this way but there is lots of money in doing things the way they are doing them, that is, unethically. Or at least aethically, if that is a word.
On the practical side, I miss maybe two witty friends (Ash and Tina, by name). There are other people I hadn’t seen in a very long time that I enjoyed catching up with. But in the modern world I can always find these people if, say, I end up travelling to their towns and want to get together.
I guess in a nutshell that is it. I am becoming an active (as opposed to passive) participant in my own social life again. Facebook was always a poor substitute for engagement in the real world. It is so easy, effortless really. And therein lies the problem, I think. Some things ought to take a little effort.
