I’ve often ranted about the evils of Facebook and yet, I confess, I’ve continued to have my WordPress posts auto-posted to Facebook. Well, that ends today. This is the last post of mine you’ll see on FB. If you normally read my stuff on FB, you can subscribe by email and be notified of my new posts here on WP. Or add a bookmark to your bookmark bar. Or follow via Twitter or the WP Reader. FB is not the only game in town.
My reasoning is simple. I’ve often written about how odious Facebook is but have never really done anything about it. Now, however, hundreds of FB advertisers are boycotting the site for not properly policing its content, and the least I can do is join them. My pitiful little auto-contribution to Zuckerberg’s empire will cease to exist as soon as I can figure out how to take it down. Meantime, don’t look on Facebook for any fresh input from me.
Note: I’d appreciate a confirmation from someone on Facebook that my PiedType material is no longer visible there. If I log back in, in the next 30 days, my account will be reactivated. Yes, that’s the way Facebook operates.
