I am pretty sure it is beyond time for me to close down my facebook account. It has been hacked once. I had to create a “new’ account and refind all my “friends”. Except I was careful to only add some bloggery buddies and my family. A few (very few) old friends in my real life.
But, the craziness has returned.
I made the mistake of responding to a snarky comment on a post. It turned into a four day long exercise in annoyance, corrections of faulty thinking (not on my part but on their thinking) and the end result is annoyance all the way around.
I’m too old to be annoyed all the time. I am a generally happy person. I figure I survived all kinds of things from homelessness to abusive spouses, to crap jobs, to medical problems and life-threatening illnesses…why do I have to “survive” crap on a social media platform as well?
The only reason I ever go on it anymore is to play a puzzle game with friends. I have their phone numbers, emails and blog addresses. Why do I need to “see’ them on multiple platforms? Well, I don’t. So, I am really thinking about getting out of the never-ending cycle of posting kittens, puppies and blather on FB and doing other things instead. Like blogging. Or weaving, painting, gardening, sewing, camping, cooking, baking, reading REAL books as well as my Kindle ones and generally annoying the heck out of friends and family.
Seems like a good decision to me.
