Me.. and my Facebook

I did the unthinkable today and deleted my Facebook account… Not sure what finally pushed me over the edge but I sure knew it was coming… Possibly it was the three hours wasted after my lectures today responding to comments on my pictures and trawling the profiles of my friends looking for comments to add, or maybe it was the heated exchange I had with some chap over Obama and McCain and how relevant it was to the rest of the world (especially Nigeria) who it was that won… Quite possibly, it was exacerbated by the friendly jibe my best friend’s kid sister threw in my direction – a candid warning to her big sis not to get addicted to FB like yours truly… Or maybe it was the ease with which it is possible to breach the walls of anonymity and become “friends” with someone you’ve never known from the start of evolution – much less from Adam’s time.. Or maybe it was the threat of potential employers snooping around on FB for mug shots of prospective employees…..

Whatever the reasons, I finally did it.. And I hope I have the steely resolve to stay away from it (apparently I’ve got till mid November to rescind my decision before FB finally pulls the plug on all my online stuff….).
