So uh, yeah. I have been a bit down of late, but I don't generally talk about my stuff much, and am not planning to start today, especially not in the daily section of the forums.

But one thing I have decided to do is reduce the amount of people I am in contact with since, a lot of people is a pretty big source of stress for me as of late.

So yah, I deactivated my facebook account. Tadah, woop, gone. Felt pretty good to do. A big source of social spammage removed. I recommend it, it's like detox in a way.

I am still active on msn messenger sometimes though, which brings me to the point of this post. If you're not on either my msn or skype friends list and want to be, just throw a pm here on the forums and I'll add ya.

I didn't really notice much of a difference last time, except the updates bit became more useful... I might even go as far as saying that I think it was an improvement!

But...but! No more "status updates only" option! It was the best thing Facebook ever had going for it. I do not care if Ste's 16 year old cousin became a fan of [something with sexual innuendo that makes me cringe because she's still 12 in my eyes] and 92384342934 other profiles. If I had the status updates only thing, I could block that from showing up. I don't want to block her from appearing entirely. I have just about every application blocked, so that's not a problem, but the becoming fans and group joining things really clog stuff up sometimes. And and and on the "Top News" feed, I really don't care if my second cousin commented on a photo of some people I don't know, posted by someone else I don't know. And yet, it shows up in my feed if that person has their privacy settings set to "friends of friends." There's no way for me to prevent this from happening short of blocking all of my friends' friends, as far as I can tell. Aaah! And, at least at first, posts were all out of order on the "Most Recent" news thing, and sometimes they just disappeared entirely. I think they've fixed it now, but it'd be lovely if they fixed such things before forcing everyone to change to the new Facebook.

*breathes*

Ahem. Yeah. Not so much a fan of the latest update.

If I wasn't so far away from my family/US friends, I might seriously consider deleting my Facebook. Almost everyone else I have on there I can speak to on here, with the exception of elementary school friends. I don't even interact with them on Facebook beyond the initial, "Hi! How have you been for the last 20 years? Etc."

Has anyone noticed how quiet the Birthday Thread has gone since we all tend to say happy birthday to people over on Facebook now?
