Well I went and did it. I chickened out a couple months ago, but I got around to it eventually anyway. Facebook no longer has a hold on me. Don’t worry I’ll probably be among the first to join whatever the next big thing is, and delete my account while the site is still going strong (Or at least, hit its peak and is now watching with horror as it begins its slow slide down into anicdotes of yesteryear and reflections of a time when your email addresse was a small ballad of what you liked, [email protected])
Although I do applaud Facebook. They did a great job at making an addictive place for people to chill out. Also it was the ultimate grapevine for hearing “hot gossip” about what your friends were up to. It was also a great place for public announcing how much of a douche you were, which I took upon myself as a duty. *Keir nods in agreement*
Oh yes, the other reason I applaud their sneakiness. All I need to do to reactivate my account is to log into it. So its tantalizingly still there. Like a needle full of cocaine in the draw beside me. Calling. Urging me on. Telling me “Just this one time, just check for any funny updates, join a random group.” NO. I shall remain strong.
NOOOOOO I was just thinking I haven't spoken to Izak for a bit, (goes to search Izak on FB) WHAT THE!!!????? Where the hell is he!!!????? So my investigation led me here…… and now I know 🙁 SO what were your reasons for leaving? After my intense studies on 'the man' and media, i think i may understand. But then again you are a complex person Izak, and your answers excite/intrigue/humor/flabbergast and all that jazz. SO tell me friend 😀
Oh and I shall leave a memorial for your FB account on my status update 😛
You go on MSN much? I'll be doing more loitering there.
Aw You shouldn't have used all those descriptive words, now whatever I say couldn't live up to these expectations you've built up. Well, I'll try and be honest and not embellish the truth with self glorifying fiction. Heh heh.
Well it all started waaay back with Myspace. I have never been a big fan of those sorts of websites. I don't know why really. I had a reason once upon a time, but now its just an ingrained hatred.Ha ha.
Anyway, Myspace was in its hayday (Bebo was making its slow rise to power) And I was chilling with Matt , and we were talking about it. I can't remember the exact words exchanged anymore, but we ended up euthanizing our accounts. It was all "Yeah! Self empowerment!" until I realized I had a nice collection of short stories I had written on there, that I had forgotten to save. So It was a bitter sweet victory…
OH WAIT. Yea I think I remember why I deleted 'em now. I was turning into a stalker. Ha ha. So it was a case of "This will be better for everyone If I delete these". Cause you know, at the end of the day, I'm a jealous sod. So these sites aren't exactly good for me.
Now not long after Aimee Brooke mentioned facebook. I hadn't heard of it before, And neither had anyone else. But I knew it for what it was! So I quickly signed up and announced that I hated it, never to look at it for another 6 or so months.
Anyway, enough history. I thought about deleting it a few months ago, but chickened out. Then the other night I was thinking about it again. This time its more about whether I could make myself do it. Cause how would I talk to you guys or my Uni mates about what we're meant to be doing? Texting? Msn? Telephone? Snail Mail? ALL THATS TO EXHAUSTING!! Right? Well, no not really, so I deleted it..
With that feat of endurance and sacrifice they then made me a Master Ninja of the internet.
Holy crap. Thats longer than the initial blog post. 0_0
