deleting facebook - it's happening.
OK. For reals. I've had had had it with Facebook. It's starting to creep me out. Awesome social networking and all - it's starting to feel forced...and just not authentic anymore...for me at least.
Obviously there are so many awesome benefits that I have enjoyed over the years...reconnecting with some of my favorite peeps and far away family members!! So rad! And I enjoy seeing pictures of my friends children as they grow. Would I still have these friends if I were to delete my account? Or would I be forgotten once I fall off the Facebook wagon? Would I become irrelevant? Yea - I guess I would. Am I prepared for that?
I just checked, and my timeline indicates that I joined Facebook on November 29, 2004. TWO THOUSAND AND FOUR. That is a long time.
Too bad - I want it gone.
EXCEPT - I need a place to share my photos with my family...because that's all I really want to use Facebook for anyway. (And I've heard that anything a person posts to Facebook becomes Facebook's property...forever...which is alarming...and strange to me...and I don't know if that is urban legend or fact) Anyway...
Do you use a photo sharing site? I need one...I need a SIMPLE one...that my parents can use (no offense Mom and Dad...but let's be serious here.) Also...I want a site that will let me upload a straight up crazy amounts of pictures.
Suggestions??? Please help me escape FB!!
