A recent NY Times article reveals why some people are leaving Facebook. In May, I deactivated my Facebook account when the signal-to-noise ratio had clearly gotten out of whack. Ironically, I found myself back on Twitter which I had left for Facebook when the latter seemed to offer a bit more value. That was a different time. Now, Facebook has just gotten altogether too silly with quizzes and games and all the same high-school shenanigans your classmates would have outgrown over the last few decades. Alas, I’m back on Twitter.
Update: OK, I’m back again on Facebook. They’ve added enough filters now so you can hide all the ridonculous stuff. Rather than shutting my Facebook, now I can shut your Facebook, ftw.
