I Torch

I torched it and up in smoke it went - figuratively anyway. What I in essence lit a match to today was my Facebook account. I deleted it. Deleting an account on FB though is not clear cut, at least not for the 14 days grace period they give you to change your mind. After that, they claim everything you have posted gets deleted.  

I guess time will tell if I can hold off on going back to it, it is a bit addictive. I also have some truly good friends whom I keep in touch with there but there certainly are other ways to do that. My only regret is that I just deleted it without informing anyone, I should have let folks know I was opting out. I may undelete it and do that yet later today then delete it again. No need to leave without a courteous farewell I suppose.

Edited to add: I undeleted the account, gave my spiel about what made me sick of Facebook, will let it stand for a day or three, then delete it again for good. There has to be some type of social media interface that is better!

All the best,
Glenn B
