I’ve noticed a definite trend lately with Facebook – I’m tired of it. Somehow, I’d like to move away from my primary connection point of family and friends being this site. Why? Well, I might start with the upcoming video ads.
Really? Multiple rumors also indicate these ads will AUTO PLAY, multiple times.
Screw that noise.
I went to paying google for my email a few months back. Why? No ads. Now, when it comes to Facebook, I struggle to find the justification. Family and friends have switched more to facebook lately, away from blogging. I think because blogs require more “work”. Like writing a letter versus calling or texting. As a society, we want immediate live feeds.
So, the question now becomes… How do I follow my friends and families without Facebook? Unfortunately, I think it requires their cooperation. I’ve had a few friends announce they would leave Facebook.
For now, I’m going to make an effort to blog here instead of posting to my Facebook feed. Hope the family gets it.
