Me and Facebook – end of a era?

So, Facebook thoughtfully provided me this response:


Thanks for taking the time to submit this report. While we don’t currently provide individual support for this issue, this information will help us identify bugs on our site.

In other words, you’re censored, no, we won’t tell you why.

Well, Facebook, goodbye. I have enough emotional literacy to know that I don’t really enjoy visiting you that much anyway, and now that you’ve started censoring me, I’m not interested in continuing. The nice thing about running my own web server is that I’m fairly sure I’m not going to censor myself.

To the rest of you all still on the site, consider leaving. There’s a lot of better content out there. Facebook has turned into a collection of games you will play while feeling totally numb and everyone repeating memes instead of talking about their lives – I guess nothing lasts forever.

Ask yourself this question – how do you *feel* while browsing the site? Do you not think there are things you could be doing that would feel better? Like, you know, actual social interaction with real humans, face to face? Or, in my case, spending more time writing and recording music? Of course, no one will hear it, since I’ve got nowhere to post it any more. 😉 Well, I did talk about creating a mailing list, I guess I will go do that.

    Time to create your own social networking site on your server. Create a resource allocation system for positive posts (voted up or down by other users), content uploaded (articles, music, photos, DYI videos, etc.), time spent on the website, etcetera. The users then can use their accumulated resources to download content, etcetera. This solves the FaceBook issue and allows you to use a resource allocation system of your choosing in a beta mode that can be fine-tuned… 😉

    Note – I have a lot of off-grid content I could add.
