Goodbye Facebook

Today was my third day - Post Facebook.

I decided to disable my Facebook account three days ago. I did this upon the realization that I have only been using it to torture my roommate with Pumpkin Spice memes. That, and my Gay Doctor Who group I started years ago. I can irritate my roommate in real life anytime I want, and the Gay Doctor Who group has a co-Administrator that can continue the nerdom without me. I wont be missed.

Other than that, there has been no real use for Facebook in my life for years.  It has only served as a drain on my time. Time that could be spent on blogging. Seriously, I really need to carve more time for the priorities of my blog. The "friendships" or connections I have will either continue onto the real world, or what I suspect will happen... they will align with my suspicions and wither on the FB vine.

Day Three. This means three days of constant and unending memes on the wonders of Pumpkin Spice not being posted on my roommate's wall.  How will he survive.

May you have better luck than I did with keeping it disabled. I went back. Twice. Granted, now I'm only checking it once a month for messages or crap I'm tagged in. But it is liberating to not be exasperated by the amount of... crap... that one is hit in the face with not realizing it.

I think all that young tail you like to chase moved on to other platforms, anyway. Especially once their parents all became members. Personally, I'm on the anti-social network, and don't use that crap except to help my parents and lover with their accounts (thankfully, they are not FB "friends").

I have never had a fuckbork account and never will. I don't think I've missed anything.

I've seen Facebook when The Better Half has shown it to me and I signed up for it when I started the blog then never went back to it, just no interest. So yes one can live without it. If people wish to catch up with me, they can come by the blog just as I come by your blog to see what's up with you.
