I just deleted my Facebook account.
I feel both free, but also a bit sad. It was how I connected with many people in my life. But Facebook is just too evil. Still feeling some mourning.
@pfm It's really important to recognize that leaving a service comes with a period of mourning. If we don't acknowledge that, or the value of the connections we make, then we're setting people up to fail.
I hope that by being open with myself and others, that it will encourage them to take the same steps.
