Well, seeing as how it literally disappeared a few years ago, I'd say... live life normally?

Not until Jimmy Page left the stage.

I'd spend more time on Fark.

Oh, and "Exiled from Facebook: How I lost a couple thousand friends in an instant"

You didn't have thousands of friends.

I have got LinkedIn for the jobby jobs but no Facebook. None of the FB Drama for me.

Not a problem when you're not on Facespace.

So a technical error caused them to lose access to their account, they made no attempt to actually contact Facebook to rectify the situation and then create a blog post about it like it's some sort of major revelation.


It's not like this is some new thing, if you've changed your phone, cell, or beeper number in the last...ever you'd get the same reaction.
 
2012-12-29 03:32:40 PM
Do people actually worry about these things?

Dialectic: I have got LinkedIn for the jobby jobs but no Facebook. None of the FB Drama for me.


I don't understand Facebook drama. You can easily enjoy the benefits of facebook (keeping up with old friends in a passive way) without partaking in or otherwise fostering any drama.

For some reason that article made me think of Kafka.

Since I have never used the Facebook, I would have no problem if it simply vanished.

the only drama I see on Facebook is in a couple groups I'm in, my actual feed? No drama there.

The only thing worse than Facebook drama are people who have to constantly drop "I don't have a Facebook account" as if it puts them on the path to getting a free dozen cookies or something.

It's funny you think Facebook has a phone number for tech support.

If they're no longer speaking to you because you no longer have a Facebook account, they were never your friends to begin with.

Which isn't half as annoying as caring about whether or not somebody else has a teevee or a facebook in the first place.

When I deleted my FB page after they forced Timeline on my account, I had given everyone fair warning about a year or so in advance. If they hadn't figured out how to get in touch with me at that point, they weren't really friends to begin with.

The real drama is in the comments attached to the meme photos everyone posts. The derp there is strong enough to compete with youtube and yahoo comments.

The smug "I only read non-fiction" claim baffles me. I don't understand how anyone can think that avoiding fiction doesn't imply that they're embarrassingly uncultured.

I've long joked that Facebook is run by three kids and a monkey

I have a theory as to why Facebook 'lost' your account ...

Which was precisely my point. I don't care. It's as if people who don't have a Facebook account and bother to go around informing everyone that they don't have a Facebook account have this expectation of the response being "Wow. That's farking amazing. Please, tell me more. I guarantee that your glorious stories will have be soiling my drawers in just a matter of minutes."

No, you're just an idiot without a Facebook account. Congrats.

Meh, I don't have a Facebook account and I only read non-fiction.

Besides what's so great about me having read hundreds of fictional novels and stories by the age of 14?

I only found out a band mate of mine deleted his Facebook account when I went to tag him in band pics and couldn't.  Not that he was much of the Facebook type anyway, but still....

To them, fiction = escapist pap. REAL readers only immerse themselves in the real world which is much more intellectually superior than reading, say, Faulkner or Dostoyevsky. It's a twisted, stunted outlook to be sure.

I only use mine for coupons and freebies anywho. Not really a huge deal to me. I'd miss the coupons more than the people on my friends list.

I have a FB page simply to let folks 'find' me and send me an email that gets forwarded to my actual used email account.

Otherwise, I log in a couple times a year to do something specific, otherwise I don't even care that it exists.

Switch to my backup account which has alot of my necessary people on it. I'd have to go hunt for some of my newer acquisitions though.

And only one quarter as annoying as caring about whether or not somebody else posts about whether they care about whether or not somebody else has a teevee or "a facebook".

I don't visit the actual main Facebook website very often. The last time I did, I saw a cluttered, disorganized pile of suck that made MySpace seem clean and minimalist. I'm sure if you use it daily you don't notice how bad it is, but that doesn't make it any less shiatty. Teenage girls could probably master the Windows registry just fine if the keys were pics and messages from their "friends."

My friends on Facebook are an assorted collection of my current real world friends, my extended family, my old friends from school, my former coworkers, my industry contacts that I only know professionally, friends of friends that I've gotten to know exclusively through Facebook, Total: 36 people.

and other interesting people I've encountered along the way. Total: 1,856 mafia wars friends
 
2012-12-30 05:36:18 PM
Wouldn't notice. Mostly because I deleted it years ago and it only existed for a few months.

2012-12-30 09:30:47 PM
The one thing I really do miss about Facebook is that one pretty girl that posted funny thoughts several times a day and everyone would feed off it and the puns would fly and some people wouldn't get the joke and then other people would make fun of that and then that person wouldn't post for awhile and then someone else would ask a personal question of the original pretty and funny girl and sometimes she would answer but not always because she was already busy posting on a new funny thread that she started. I miss that.
