After some considerable contemplation, I have decided to close my Facebook account.
My frustration began when I was encouraged to start a separate page to promote my LitWeekLA website. The message was that business should be kept separate from personal, and that made sense to me, but I quickly realized that nobody saw the posts I put up on my business page – unless I paid.
Okay, fine, so I paid, but I even when I did, I found that very few people were seeing my posts.
Then all the privacy concerns. As I write this, Zuckerberg is giving his second day of testimony to a grand jury. Frankly, I don’t like what I’m hearing.
So I’m closing my account.
