R.I.P. Facebook

Well, I did it.  I killed my Facebook account.  I clicked the "Permanently Delete" box and hit the enter button.  Whew!  Man, do I feel better.  

I never really got Facebook.  I signed up to monitor my daughters activity.  What I got was inundated with worthless information.  

Here's the fundamental disconnect I see with Facebook:  I log on and my screen is filled with comments and daily minutia from friends.... and worse yet, their friends.  The fact is, I don't care if you're sitting at Olive Garden sipping on a apple-tini (even if we did share some good times together in college).  And I certainly don't care about your friend's friend Lacy from Accounting and what she thinks about global warming.... not my concern.

We are already overwhelmed in our daily lives with information.  The last thing I need is more meaningless details.  The next time I want to "social network," I'll pick up a phone and call you....

Ahh.  Free at last....
