Facebook: Audi Five

More

Some of you know, I've been back and forth on my Facebook membership. This right here may mean absolutely nothing, but it was enough to send me over the edge for good. It's quite likely that it's not possible to go over the edge for good, that they're keeping this info somewhere even after they tell you they're deleting your profile. Oh well. Don't mean I've got to stick around.


For the record, I'm not urging anyone to follow my lead. I'm not even clear on why Facebook makes me uncomfortable. If you love it, you should stay. But I think this whole dust-up just gave me the excuse I've been searching for.
