Deactivated? No, Deleted*!


Goodbye, Facebook.

I'll miss my friends there but not the time wasting or the concerns that I have regarding privacy and identity theft. For me, the decision wasn't a difficult one and breaking up wasn't hard to do.

Life is Good!

* Thanks to Cindy, a reader, I 've gone back into my Facebook account and, using the online help section, have requested formal account deletion. I didn't realize that deactivation was little more than a "log-off". A word to the wise.

Aww, that's what happened. O-tay. I think it's not such a bad idea but only for me because it's a HUGE WASTE OF MY TIME. I'm not going to delete it though.

I hear you loud and clear and have been pondering the same things myself.

While you were in process of shutting down, I discovered

and really thought you and Hannes should know!

Hmmm, I did not start up facebook yet, and I think I will not. Kind or worrisome...
