It’s official. I am no longer a fan of Facebook.
While nobody offended me, while I did not have a bad experience, I am not thrilled about the useless informal idea of social media sharing.
Facebook have been sucking time from my life too long and not making me any money and, unlike money, time is a zero sum game. While some of the time spend on Facebook may have edifying, as a real person, I rather much prefer to meet with my real friends Face to Face and most of my Facebook friends are not actually friends. This makes me wonder of the reason why I initially got on Facebook: “How many virtual friends can I assemble?”
As for the photo sharing process, there are other much more better options. And, after all, everything considered, why would I care about sharing and seeing my pictures on Facebook for the FBI, the Mossad, The CIA, The RCMP or other mobster organization or governmental agencies around the world? Do I hate myself, the members of my family or my friends that much? Thinking about it, Facebook often brings out the worst in people. The willingness of so many to demonstrate their arrogance and total ignorance of the facts of life still boggles me! I learn more about everything and everyone on Twitter.
Twitter is in fact to Facebook what a biography is to a novel. There is nothing wrong with reading fiction, but I confess that I feel a little guilty and ashamed when I spend time reading something that do not make any sense, that is total fabrication, that did not or will never actually happen. Twitter is now one of my number one sources for hard news, opinions and facts as well as a relational connecting point. This is even better than LinkedIn to learn about people and or their expertise. Twitter is more of a resource and less of a popularity contest and self-congratulating tool than both, Facebook and LinkedIn
Furthermore, the presence of ads on Facebook is getting ridiculous. Am I the only one who notices that?
Yes, like I like to say, “less is often more” and my only mission in life is to simplify life, my life and the life of everyone else who, like me, would like to profit from life, not just have a taste of what life can be. What I want, for myself and everyone is a lower cost of living, both financial and energy wise and a higher quality of life. What I want is to limit the number of these insignificant and meaningless things that compete for my attention so that I can enjoy those I really care the most about. Yes indeed, less is often more and Facebook is simply not for me.
Goodbye, Facebook, Hello Twitter!
