In September 2017 I deleted my Facebook account, or so I thought. Several searches online made me think there were bits and pieces of my account still alive. On March 18th, 2018 I attempted to log back on to Facebook and lo-and-behold. It was as if I had never left. There is, apparently, a special set of steps you need to take to delete your account completely, but I doubt it is ever really gone. Once something goes online it lives there forever.
The things I missed during my time away from Facebook amount to a tremendous pile of nothing. Many people I know, or have previously known, experienced many things in their lives. Some great, some terrible. There were probably hundreds of memes I missed out on, darn. At least two people I know had babies (spoiler alert, all babies are the same (even mine (if anyone thinks other wise they are just fooling themselves))).
For some people, Facebook and social media mean a lot. Who am I to judge? Ok, I am very judgmental, but if someone else enjoys social media then ok. But exactly what is social media good for? Sharing things? Photographs, News Stories (that no one actually reads), memes?
