Facebook Ruined For Me Now

Wow. I can't believe it's been so long since I've been here to write anything!


I've been on Facebook all this time. I enjoyed being on it too despite many, many annoying aspects....such as every time I turned around I had to go and check on my privacy setting and make sure what I wanted visible was visibile and what I wanted private remained private.


I had tons of friends and almost all my family members. It was a quick, painless way to see photos and jokes and risque posts as well as clean out my own political spleen when it got to me to see what a clown we have for a prez.


I know that Facebook is free and as such we should be grateful for any little social crumb they scatter our way, but no one I know likes the Timeline look. It is as amateurish and sophomoric as MySpace ever thought about being. My daughter Elaine says they don't want adults on it, they want kids. I guess kids are easier to deal with that mad as hell old ladies like me.


OMG, I've completely forgotten how to write HTML. Thank goodness for the free online HTML editors!


Anyway, I'm most upset with Facebook because I'm genetically programed to resist change on every level and once I've made up my mind it's a done deal. I can't begin to tell you how many mistakes I've made along the way, but if you can't stand up for your own personal code of standards and practices, then what good are they?


I'm going to miss Mafia Wars and my “family” both in the game and in real life. Mafia Wars basically sucks, but I'm so darn competitive that I took to it like a duck to a pond.
