“Are you sure you want to deactivate your account?”
That that was Mark Zuckerberg on my decision to cancel my Fa$ebook account.
Well, not Mark his actual self. It was the FB disconnect page. Then, my “149 friends will no longer be able to keep in touch”, it said.
I wrote that in p2pnet in May, 2010, going on, “People such as they “will no longer be able to contact me.”
I hadn’t realised Fa$ebook was my only access point to Maggie, Joe and Tara, among others. And Sadie, Chris, Lawrence and Emma will apparently miss me too 😉 …]
But actually, it’ll be fine. No more Mafia plugs. No more ‘friendship’ invites from people I’ve never heard of.
And Emma and I will still be in touch.
She’s my daughter even if she still has the Facebook addiction. 🙁
But she and I can still occasionally communicate as they did in the dark ages, BF (Before Facebook).
Then this email arrived this morning (I kept my p2pnet email address).
You have new notifications. A lot has happened on Facebook since you last logged in. Here are some notifications you’ve missed from your friends
Presumably, I wasn’t alone because as Jolie O’Dell put it in Mashable, “one out of every 13 Earthlings and three out of four Americans is on Facebook, and one out of 26 signs into Facebook on a daily basis.”
Will we ever be free?
