One Must Faceth the Facebook Conundrum

So. . . .

So I watched the Netflix documentary about Cambridge Analytica called THE GREAT HACK last night. And long story short, I’m trying to back away from Facebook. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do this for a long time now, actually, and still keep people updated with my writing goings on and other things, and then it occurred to me: I have a blog I’m not using! Duh.

There’s another reason why I’m trying to back away from Facebook though, you know, besides their misuse of user data and privacy and other shady business practices. I’m sure this will come as no surprise to anyone, but it’s hella distracting! Yes, I said hella. Deal with it.

But BUT it’s also a fantastic way to keep in touch with people, and find out about things I never would have found out about before, and geek out about shows and movies together, and did I mention the cat videos? No? Well there are CAT VIDEOS on Facebook. Did you know this? Cat. Videos. Videos of cats. I love cats.

Sigh.

Cats.

But you know what? I can watch cat videos on YouTube. And I can go to news websites to keep up with the news. And I can learn things by following educational blogs and listening to podcasts and reading these fascinating analogue things called books. And I can keep in touch with you all HERE.

So that’s the plan. I’m going to get back into blogging. I’ll keep my Facebook account for now, but basically only so I can toss up a link to this blog until those of you who are actively interested in what I have to say get used to just coming here in the first place and then . . . I don’t know. I might end up deleting Facebook all together. As for Twitter and Instagram (owned by Facebook, btw,) well, one thing at a time, okay? Okay.

And I would like to follow YOUR blogs too, and keep up with you that way. So if you have a blog you’d like me to follow, please comment with a link (unless you’d prefer to keep it more private, in which case you can message me on, well, Facebook, or send me an email through my handy-dandy contact page,) and I will follow you back! Unless I’m already following your blog, in which case I’ll . . . keep . . . following it. I guess. Yeah.

SO ANYWAY. That’s that. Hope to see you here. And there. At your blogs. *awkwardly ends post*

  1. Good idea with backing off on Facebook – some of my fav author support people are on there, tho. And the cat memes. *Sigh

    But, I will definitely keep an eye out for new articles here, and if you’d like to see where I hang out off Facebook, you can find me at jcsteelauthor.com/blog.
