Facebook: A complete waste of time?

Posted by avatarbignose last updated September 17, 2008 at 9:33 pm

I'm in complete agreement with this journal entry:

I hereby do notify the world that I shall not join any form of online service that has any of the following features:

  • Requires me to work out who my friends are.
  • Asks me to approve you as a friend before we can communicate.
  • Sends me an email to tell me someone didn't send me an email.
  • Wants me to register before I can contribute.
  • Wants me to write a constant narrative of my life just in case someone unspecified wants to read it.
  • Expects me to manually give my availability or location for any reason.
  • Endorses products to others based using my name.

Coming next:

  • Any non-commercial site that doesn't use OpenID and wants me to create yet another username and password. (And you can guess which qualifier I'll be dropping after that.)
Yes, my Facebook account is closed. (And if you invite me to join a Facebook group, I won't.)
