blogging my opinion

Saying Goodbye To Facebook

Facebook is fun. I liked it a lot. But I’m leaving it today.

I’ll miss its incessant notifications, all the “likes”, weather reports, smiling birthday notifications and spooky adds about stuff I just looked at elsewhere a few hours ago; everything bouncing around in an attention grabbing silo created by some powerful invisible algorithm designed to keep my eyeballs locked on it, way beyond a reasonable time.

It was fun for a while but honestly, Facebook now makes me nervous. I don’t trust it. I used to think of it as a wonderful digital product created to allow me to interact with friends, family and acquaintances. I now feel Facebook is not a product for my use. 

Pure and simple, Mark Zuckerberg wants my eyeballs to sell to others. 

My concern about Facebook also extends to Instagram since Facebook owns that too. So that’s going as well.

I’ll miss them both but…Goodbye!

PS I’ll still be on Twitter and right here. I do like blogging!

I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader.
However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery.
I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it.

I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.
