So much has happened to everything since last I updated this, and there are so many terrible, terrifying things going on inside Facebook, that I am removing myself from that network for good and beginning a new kind of online presence that I hope will be more on my own terms, and healthier.
Right now, I am posting final updates to that trash application and reaching out to any contacts that I want to keep, and I will publish a final message on that account’s wall to hopefully route old friends or any interested new friends to this blog.
I know not everyone uses WordPress or will have an account to interact with me here, but I think any wise person, at this point, should consider leaving that[FB] increasingly compromised, psychologically manipulative application, the bizarre will of its android-esque founder, the hive of algorithmic, privacy-invading political and corporate advertisers and their brand managers, narrative managers, and social media managers, as well as Facebook’s increasing cooperation with the fascist state we seem to be living in.
Too much of the chaos we live in today was caused by those utilizing Facebook for the purposes it was built for, legally purchasing ads, accessing datasets generated by millions of profiles, and buying popularity and influence for horrible concepts, bad ideologies, and shit human beings who should NEVER so easily gain it.
Enough is enough. I find myself angry and searching for a way to a new online social presence most days, and today was the day I decided to do something about it. Sadly many, many people are still on FB and I probably won’t have the level if interaction here that I had there, but that’s perfectly ok with me at this point.
Hope to see some of you come by from time to time, and I’ll try to use this as more of a social thing than a blog. I look forward to seeing you here, and hope you will feel comfortable in this environment, knowing there are no bully-censor mechanisms hanging over your head that will strike if you speak from a leftist perspective. Even if you are a rotten asshole, it will take a lot for me to delete comments here. =P
PS– please don’t judge me for silly, fanciful posts from years ago. Thx. : )
