  • 2014-04-16 Doug McKown: Why I’m Quitting Facebook

    I’ve already deleted my Pinterest, Google+, and Tumblr account, but still have too many accounts to manage: Facebook, two Instagram accounts, and three Twitter accounts. I’m closing both Instagram accounts and my Facebook account.

    I want to own and control my content.

  • 2014-03-31 Eat24 (company): A Breakup Letter to Facebook from Eat24:
    We’ll pack our things and be gone by 11:59pm on Monday night. Yes, you read that right. Eat24, the company that is always telling customers to Like our page, post on our wall, and ask us for coupons on Facebook… is deleting its Facebook. This is real.
  • 2014-03-21 Dadepo Aderemi: Getting Personal:
    I am avoiding Facebook by all means now. I still keep using twitter though, but majorly as a source of discovery for things around my area of professional interests, and once in a while, a place to engage in ephemerial and disjointed rants. If I have something on my mind I really feel the need to share or capture, I write a coherent post instead. No, sorry: fusilade of tweets is no longer for me.
