Ok, so I opened a facebook account a few years ago. It was when facebook was mostly kids & college students. I "friended" my kids, and started following their lives. I thought I was being pretty sneaky learning all about them and their friends. I found out my kids and their friends are actually really good people. Yay! Fast forward to a year later.....my mother and her sisters (in their late 60's & early 70's) got a facebook account. For a while all was fine. Reconnected with people from high school (30+ years ago) which seemed interesting. Then old boyfriends, and past co-workers went into the mix. Over time there were maybe 250 "friends" reading about my life on a daily basis. I had become obsessed with who had "liked" my last picture or comment. I started spending WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too much time on FB. Shortly after that came the drama. My mother would ask me in a phone conversation if I had seen so & so's comment about XYZ..... Really? How about a conversation in PERSON with the certain someone she was talking about. Then it hit me. Facebook is simply a place to gossip and be nosy about people. I then heard that once you upload a picture or video or any other type media onto facebook, they OWN the rights to use anything you put on there. I didn't believe it, so I started reading the fine print. Yep, it's true. So, after downloading all my photos and other material, I have deactivated my facebook account and have re-entered the world of REAL LIFE. I suddenly found HOURS to play with my chickens. WOOHOOOOO! How does everyone else feel about FB?
