In my attempt to get the clutter out of my life, Facebook was the next thing to go. I defriended six hundred something people I didn’t know, on January 1st, and left my account open, because I use it to host my project pages on it. But now it all ends.
But truth be told. Facebook doesn’t draw any quality readers to any of the websites. And from a webmasters point of view, it’s even worse: people genuinely like what I’m doing here, and want to contribute in some way. In the pre-facebook era, I would receive almost daily mail about people just telling me to keep going, or to offer help, to place a link, to stay in touch… Today that urge to ‘do something back’ has now been replace by this disgusting ‘Like’-mentality.
So I’m going to spare you the rest of the rant, but if you, dear Facebook user, would like to see what happens on here, you’ll have to change your numbed down behaviour for I could care less if the Like-generation stops using the bandwidth of these servers – and by extension the environment. Hey, how much carbon dioxide do all those ‘Likes’ pump in the air anyway?
The more I travel around and see people living hand in hand with nature, the less I understand our weird obsessions with technology. It’s probably just me though, you know, being one year retired and all :)
