Social Media is a pain in my butt

March 7th, 2014

I just went through the hassle of deleting my Google+ profile and wiping out all my circles, etc. Facebook is soon to follow. This isn’t a privacy thing- I gave up on that a while ago, no, this is a quality of life issue. On Google+ I was getting people adding me to their circles and I had no idea who they were. Since I hadn’t even looked a Google+ since I set it up a year or two ago I couldn’t see any reason I should allow it to keep making associations for me that I did not want it to.

Facebook has been a bit of a love/hate relationship. I like keeping tabs with friends, but I post less and less, and getting bombarded with “like this if you’re for/against ” crap is just getting old. The ads are sometimes pretty disturbing, too. I’ve pulled the plug on Facebook a couple of times, but I really think I’m done now. If I feel the need to spout off about something I’ll do it here (which is why I just renewed my domains). I came within a few days of just letting them both expire, but in the end I just couldn’t let Methuselah’s Daughter just vanish and to keep that I have to keep, so there we are.

I’m not opposed to Social Media, I just don’t see that I need it and it is starting to become a pain in the butt. Once it gets to that point, why keep at it?
