I am pretty well convinced to quit facebook. There is just so much that is invasive and wrong going on there. I rarely go there anymore, as I find the discussion on Twitter far more productive. I do worry about what I will lose.
- Family and friend connections that I don't have elsewhere. I know that once I cut the cord I a bunch of second cousins and high school friends will disappear. Many of whom are considered good friends and family is always family.
- I will be out of the loop for some future events. This years grad-reunion was done almost completely over facebook.
- Facebook is used to rally support for progressive causes, Will abandoning it give over a valuable platform to non-progressives.
Has anyone recently abandoned facebook. I kind of want to still have it, even if it only to go every 6 months just to see check in.
