About three months back, I left Facebook. Left it forever both professionally and personally - it’s an insane place to be at the best of times. What began many years ago for most of us as a place to keep in touch with old friends we had long since moved away from (and let’s be honest here, we only did that to make sure they weren’t getting on any better in life than we were), has turned into the world’s biggest party... and I'm not even in the kitchen.
On the plus side, I have reclaimed an estimated whole day of my life back. On the downside, nobody wishes me good morning anymore, nobody is LTFAO at something mildly humorous that I stole from somebody else to post, and nobody is updating me on what they had for breakfast or how shit their car is today...
Worse still, I have gone from thousands of friends to just three who - as luck would have it -1 knew before Facebook launched and are still around. When I first announced I was going to leave, one of my FB friends asked me not to because it was “handy to know what I was doing without having to speak to me”.
Thanks. That made me feel really wholesome and warm inside.
The really scary thing however - especially for those of you who have the hub welded to your souls - is that I reckon 98 percent noticed I’m not there anymore.
You know it’s time to move on when the huge companies move in and start asking you to hook up with them via their TV adverts. What was once a cool place to hang out and see some funny pics from days gone by has become big business. For those of you who use Facebook as your only source of PR and business, I would suggest you think carefully about this. It’s not your special space. It’s the world’s special place. At the stroke of a button, they can be away from your lifes-work and milking pigs at Farmville. It’s rather like going out for a drink with somebody who insists on messaging their other friends while they’re sitting next to you.
Step back for a second and take a look at the screen you’re locked into. Seen how many subliminal messages are loaded up on the page that will take your digi-pals elsewhere?
... and twitter? I’m a writer. How am I supposed to say something in 140 characters when I can’t even make a decent point in less than 1,400 words? I don’t think so. If you’ve got nothing to say, why not shut the hell up?
Surely having your own online house is the way to go? Do you really want to live and conduct all our business in a digital hostel? Social networking will die in the next three years - be ready. A party with that many millions of guests can only end with somebody being sick in the garden.
I know this because I checked in on MySpace on the way out of the door. But none of that is an excuse not to like us on Facebook all the same ;)

A comic book (often shortened to simply comic and sometimes called a funny book, comic paper or comic magazine) is a magazine made up of narrative artwork broken into "panels" that represent individual scenes, often accompanied by dialog (usually in word balloons, emblematic of the comic book art form) as well as including brief descriptive prose. The first comic book appeared in the United States of America in 1934, reprinting the earlier newspaper comic strips, which established many of the story-telling devices used in comics. The term "comic book" arose because the first comic books reprinted humor comic strips, but despite their name, comic books do not necessarily operate in humorous mode; most modern comic books tell stories in a variety of genres. The Japanese and European comic book markets demonstrate this clearly. In the United States the super-hero genre dominates the market, even though other genres also exist.
