You Won't Find Me on Facebook

With the daily self-portrait posted, never have to worry I might vanish in the sea of network world completely

Drift netting is just not my style of social networking.

I find it so off putting receiving numerous automated emails from people asking, inviting me to join social services (especially facebook) and clogging my inbox for years. Most of them are even remote acquaintances. I am getting bombarded with complete strangers, too.

So, you won't find me on facebook.

I, myself would prefer to wait for a better social network that did not feel like a popularity contest, period.
