I ATEN'T DED

For clarification, this is my return to Facebook; it's using POSSE to collect likes and such from other sites, but keeping all my content on my own site. This also means that I'll probably not see your message on Iacebook because I won't be logging in there very frequently.

It's funny, the person in Mauritius who has my Gmail account associated with their facebook account is getting emails asking them if they know my friends in America.

A few people have recently asked me why I left facebook.  Mostly, it was because I was compulsively checking it for no real reason.  Yes, I miss out on the heartwarming stories that people post, and I miss out on hearing what my friends are doing in places far and near.  But I also miss out on tracking cookies, being an outlet for advertising, and siloing my data in Facebook's vaults.

We'll see how this works out.
