About a week ago, I disabled my Facebook account. A movie I saw on a reputable blog freaked me out. I don’t want to get into the details here, others explain it much better than me. I had known some of the facts before but for some reason last week, it just got to me and I shut it down.
Just so we are clear, I’m not afraid of the Internets or any of this ‘social media’ stuff. I love it. I relish it. I seek out new services just for fun. But, I decided, since I wasn’t getting any value from it, (my professional network is on LinkedIn and my friends do like to hang out at mySpace so) Facebook felt like it was extra for me anyway.
I think it’s probably time for all of us to start reading those user agreements. DANG.
