Goodbye Facebook, hello peace-of-mind

Our irises are in full bloom. This is WAY better than social media.

I’ve had it with Mark Zuckerberg and his feckless, cowardly behavior towards Trump. Compared with Jack Dorsey and Twitter, who have begun pushing back against the Cheeto Gibbon, Zuckerberg is trying desperately to straddle the line and doing a shit job of it. I can’t participate in that anymore. Plus, Zuckerberg has made himself bulletproof against his board, and that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. He’s made a lot of bad calls, and with the board powerless to rein him in, he can continue to mess with our content, our privacy, and cause more carnage.

I’ll admit, it hurts to delete my Facebook account, but I’ve been slowly weaning myself off of it. It might mean I miss out on some events and things with family and friends, but before I pulled the plug, I let them know they can still follow me on Twitter or subscribe to this blog, but those who didn’t keep up with that will hopefully find their way to me through another route.

Hopefully something more positive as a platform will emerge, but until then, I’m secure in the knowledge that I made a good call. Plenty of my friends aren’t on Facebook and they’re doing just fine.

In the meantime, enjoy this lovely iris. May it bring peace to your hearts as it has to ours.
