What? Has It Really Been That Long? Er...

I blame Facebook.

170 different privacy settings - W, as they say, TF is up with that???

I opened an account last month, having finally succumbed to peer pressure, and have spent the intervening time tweaking settings so that I don't accidentally leave any personal information in the hands of potential enemies.

And then there's the games - I've been playing Mahjongg and that Scrabble thing where they put in words that don't exist so you never get past the second round and Kingdoms of Camelot (fail) and other things so insidiously addictive that I've come to believe the whole thing is a creation of Lex Luthor or the League of Super-Criminals or something to keep me distracted as they go about their various misdeeds like setting fire to the Sun and such.


Then, right? Then they go and change all the privacy stuff so I have to review the whole thing all over again...


Evil, I tell you - just plain evil...

Yeah it's reasonably stupid - I really wish I could do without one (a facebook profile that is)
Can't though, can you?

Like all those things we never needed until we had them that then became indispensable.

I'm thinking of making Wednesday a cellphone-free day for a while, see how that goes...

Oh the main reason is that my primary job is social media so I'm forced into a bunch of networks that I could easily do without. That being said the Facebook account is pretty much set and forget for me, all my other stuff such as blogs etc all flow through to it and I have been getting on there more often of late.

But try training people on Facebook when everyday seems to bring a new privacy setting or page definition :)
