Well, I finally drew the line in the sand (see post Web 2.0 below) and took myself off Facebook. The internet is a wonderful beast and you can meet some amazing people but if you’re not careful, it can take over your life completely. I was finding it difficult to keep up with Facebook and all those applications attached to it. And in the main, I have other ways of keeping touch with my Facebook friends.
Rather than allow me to delete myself, Facebook let me deactivate the account. The good thing about this is if I decide to go back, it will be quite simple to do so, without having to reinvent my profile all over again. I’m not sure if I stay listed as a friend on people’s accounts while I’m deactivated.
I have kept my MySpace profile since this is more about music. You can contact me there or though this blog.
Only eight days before my trip. 🙂
