Ah I've thought about leaving Facebook many times before but the practical uses it has held me back, genuine reasons to keep in touch with your friends and family. But the way the site had changed throughout the years to better suit advertising and corporate interests (as well as governmental) is making me consider a definite abandonment of Facebook. But...
but it has to be done right, and of course, in style.
Check out what Nick Briz has to say about it:
Once i decide to leave I'll have my facebook redirect ppl to a personal blog or some kind of creative output to inspire others if they land on my page.
I just recalled someone mentioning on here how facebook is essentially a one of the precursers that will eventually result in some synthesis of human connection to robotics and the internet...
woah man, we'll always be connected through some neuro-internet implants that you come home to afterwork to immerse yourself in some virtual life to lounge with your homies. Didnt facebook buy the technology for Oculus Rift? There's gonna be some weird augmented reality factor to it at first and then it'll turn into some David Cronenberg stuff.
Nice post though, this is a topic we should always be discussing and vigilant in the reality of its symptions.
