Hello, my name is
I’ve come to a point in my life where all the novelty of Facebook has worn off. Since it only ever had very limited actual utility, this is the point where it is time to deactivate Facebook.
As of this morning, I have deactivated my Facebook profile. I will no longer check the site and no longer be subject to the un-ending stream of asinine drivel that used to assault me every time I did. I will no longer like anyone’s posts and will not be posting anything of my own. I will not have to see any more pictures of my college roommate’s stupid baby.
The more I think about this, the more I realize that it has nothing to do with privacy rights, or site redesigns or concerns over what Facebook does or is going to do with my data. No, this initiative is born out of a basic curmudgeonly desire to stop “pretending” to be friends with hundreds of people with whom I haven’t had any legitimate communication in ages. I don’t know any of you. None of you know me. We may have once been friends but we no longer are, so let’s just put an end to this ridiculousness.
