Gave up Facebook

At first i liked it. I could post things I found important very quickly, and I assumed to a greater audience. It just depressed me. I found the thoughts most of my friends posted to be so banal, I ended up hiding them. Im sure I was hidden by a few also.

To me what your making for dinner, or a car you want to buy isnt important. It just proves that nothing has really changed. People running around conspicuously consuming, and everyone hitting the "like" button, or some glib comment like they really care.

There are real problems facing our country, facing the gloriously inattentive people that dont see what's ahead.

So I quit facebook. Its just a marketing tool anyway. Your information is being sold so the shiny new things you so crave can be efficiently dangled in your face. I will miss hearing about it all.

Im going to attempt a post everyday.
