Jane Irwin just deleted all of her Facebook Wall Posts.
Seriously, the privacy thing was just getting to me. I should never have allowed myself to become so dependent on it in the first place: It's a time-sink, it's yet another false substitute for actual contact with friends, and it's taken me away from supporting this blog.
I'm still keeping the account for several reasons: it does give people a chance to get a hold of me that mightn't otherwise; both sides of my family use it heavily for communication and pictures; I need it for work development; and if I ever do make another comics series, I'll need it for promotional purposes. The reality is that Facebook keeps a copy of every keystroke, every photo or link you post, even a trail of every page you visit. That info is theirs whether you delete your account entirely or not, so from now on I'll just be using it as another broadcast point for stuff I write here.
So hey, if you've noticed that I deleted some stuff you posted to my wall, never fear. I still love you in real life -- I just don't love Facebook.| Comments (0)
