Totally Over Facebook

Well folks, that's it for me on Facebook these most recent changes are more than I am willing to deal with. Especially the timeline feature and the new sidebar thing that scroll every time anyone does anything. For example, posting items you have read on Facebook without your knowledge or permission.
I refer you to this article:Facebook Privacy Issues.

Also, now the ability for people to tell when you have unfriended them. Chances are if you have unfriended someone, you probably don't care what they think, but it could cause ripples if you have shared friends you are keeping, or if it is someone at work. Or what if you unfriend someone by accident and don't realize it. Then your "friend" will be hurt and upset wondering why you unfriended them.

Another interesting article: FB User Dislikes

It is all just too much for me. I have a rule I do something because it is fun, when it isn't fun anymore, I stop doing it. Facebook is no longer fun. And I am concentrating on G+ and Twitter. Please come join me at either of those sites. If you still enjoy Facebook, good for you, but a personal word of caution, be very careful what you share in your profiles and in your posts. What you listen to and what you watch on Netflix, pretty soon it will be out there for the whole world to know. And personally I don't care if people know my fav Disney movie is the Princess and the Frog, but I should be able to choose to share that information; Facebook should not be sharing it for me.

Happy Knitting ya'll.

I'm with you on that! Sick of the whole facebook thing! It seems like I just hear people say bad things about what they saw whoever post.
