The Ministry of Truth (Minitrue)

Resplendent in Newspeak and Doublethink.

Facebook’s gone for a burton………

I did it. I’m not exactly euphoric, but I am relieved. It was a ambitious leap, jumping from such a colossal bandwagon, but I landed safely.

This sheep had departed the flock.

I deactivated my Facebook account this evening.

Phew.

I dread to think just how many days, nay, weeks…..christ, months worth of time I’ve wasted reading pathetically irrelevant updates, egotistical opinions, ‘Like’-ing posts and ‘ignoring’ Farmville and CafeWorld requests.

I guess it came down to a number of things including, but not exclusively, the recent privacy issues surrounding FB. Truthfully, I had over time, allowed a considerable set of wankers and egocentrics full access to my profile. The never-ending problem of adding people you hated at school etc etc.

So now, it’s the fourteen day countdown. Can’t come quick enough.
