Well, it finally happened. I’d been happy without one, but I felt like I was missing out on too many important events in the lives of my friends, so I finally decided to join (and participate in?) facebook. Obviously there are tons of concerns around privacy and I’ve taken the approach of posting 100% publicly, when I do post thus far. Also, I’m using Ghostery to keep the creepy tracking to a minimum.
It hasn’t even been 24 hours, so I’m not sure how much I’ll be using it. Similarly with twitter, I’m sure I’ll forget it exists in a few weeks until someone asks me about it again or links to it, then I’ll remember all over again. It’s really amazing how many people are on it and actively use the site. I suppose livejournal is finished and done with by now. A shame, really. Livejournal has the most superior threaded commenting system I’ve seen on the internet. And it was completed in its current form almost 10 years ago. Yet in 2012, facebook doesn’t have comment threading at all.
If you’re interested in seeing more personal information like dog pics, ridiculous quotes and other things that are boring and mundane, feel free to add me there.
This substantially increases my social media accounts to keep up with. Let’s do the inventory:
There won’t be more than this, right? This is it I hope.
