I hate facebook

Today I deleted my Facebook Account

I have always hated Facebook. I hate the way they change things without asking. I hate the non straightforeward way it works. I hate the way people now don’t value privacy and the contribution¬†Facebook¬†has made towards that attitude. In addition I hate the way they make you have a stupid “page” if your a business that is useless as a marketing tool.

I setup my facebook account some years ago to promote my band. Pretty soon after that I realized it was not a very good tool for that purpose and then focussed on building a mailing list. I also set it up to keep in contact with my family but to be honest I never go in as I prefer to talk to them. I haven’t used it for ages so I thought rather than leave it online so people can build up a database of images of me I decided to erase my account. By the way if you don’t think people are building up databases of images check out facesearch.com¬†– creepy! Or this one brought to you by Reuters vuedle

I am now cleansed

Previous to facebook there was myspace. I hated that too. So much so I wrote a song about it
