Happier without Facebook

Isn’t it amazing how something (that originally started out as fun and exciting) can quickly become annoying, time consuming, and frustrating. This is how I feel about my experience with Facebook.

First I need to point out some positives. Facebook helped me to reconnect to people that I haven’t heard from in 15+ years. That is the only positive thing I have to say about Facebook.

What I did not enjoy was the total invasion of my privacy. I don’t like the fact that Facebook openly shares my information, without my consent (and their bogus TOS doesn’t count as “consent”). Even after I locked my account down, I still saw information, that should have been private, shared openly on Google.

I could go on for ages about this, but it isn’t worth my time.

Needless to say, I’m now Facebook free and I couldn’t be happier! I will my miss friends. I hope you can wander your way here some time.
