Okay, I gave it a try for a month, and it’s not for me. It’s not the sort of “social life” I am interested in. The whole thing just seemed strange, a little spooky, to me. The utter debasement of the word “friend” set me off from the start. Then it took no time at all before I had “friends” all over the place, and each time I opened the thing, I would find 50, 100, 200 new posts. Who has that kind of time? Finally I suppose it was the flagrant marketing of oneself that made me feel just a little on the dirty side of life. Then there is the cavalier attitude of the FB owners and administrators about personal privacy … although it was obvious that most FB users haven’t the slightest interest in privacy, to the contrary, the whole point is personal publicity. I am not interested in such flagrant self-promotion (which is probably why my books don’t sell wildly), so Facebook is not for me. If you read this blog, this is the answer to “where did he go?” He went home.
