Goodbye, Facebook

Below is an email I sent out to some of my friends and family a few weeks ago.  When I sent the email, I deactivated my FB acct.  Today I deleted it.

Hi Folks,

As many of you already know, I don’t like Facebook.   It is hard for me to articulate all of the reasons why I feel FB is destructive, but the article below touches on many of them.

In a recent conversation I had with my son, I realized the inconsistency of maintaining a Facebook account at all (I got one so I could hear from some of you).  I think in retrospect that was a mistake, because the simple act of maintaining an account lends support, and I really don’t want to even lend support.

Let me be clear:  I think Facebook is destructive to our privacy, destructive to our relationships, and exists only to serve itself.   Participating on Facebook ultimately hands over a vast power in our life to a hostile enemy.

I’ve put this off for far too long.  I regret to announce — this is The End.  I am going now.  I bid you all a very fond farewell.  I don’t expect I shall return.  In fact, I mean not to.

Love,

-David
