Facebook Frustration

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.
