Bite my shiny metal chump, Facebook!January 15, 2008
I shut down my Facebook account a while back because it was proving a massive drag on my time and energies. Friendspam, as I’ve been calling it ever since the start of this sentence, is horrible for all sorts of reasons, but Tom Hodgkinson’s piece in yesterday’s Guardian points out a few you may not be familiar with. (Is it all right to end a sentence with ‘with’? I never know. It looks all right. Oh, what the hell, leave it.)
By the way, I’d like to take this moment to apologise to all those friends of mine who joined Facebook because I told them it was the greatest thing in the world.
