I’ve been a heavy user of Facebook for many years, but I’m going to step back for a little while.
Facebook has too much power, and doesn’t wield that power wisely. And also Facebook is just plain difficult to use.
I believe those two things are related. Facebook doesn’t want you using Facebook for maximum enjoyment and usefulness. It wants you to maximize your time on Facebook, and that means getting you angry and frustrated.
I’ll continue posting to Facebook for work and for the La Mesa-Foothills Democratic Club because those are my responsibilities. But I’m looking for opportunities to pull back from Facebook and this seems like one of them.
Also, I’ll check in occasionally to see what other people are saying.
And I may be back. For now, just taking a break to see how it feels.
