I have deactivated my Facebook account!
I did this for several reasons:
1. “Familiararity breeds contempt” as the saying goes and closer contact with some close friends was becoming touchy – in one case (and perhaps two) friends broke off contact (they will know who I mean).
2. I was becoming increasingly concerned that Facebook’s security was not all it cracked itself up to be. This was strengthened by NSW and Federal police warnings of increased criminal activity being monitored on Facebook, including, fraud and identity theft (700 million world wide users and 3 million in Australia, Facebook was too good to be true for criminal gangs!)
3. Recent unannounced changes to Facebook did not please me.
I will return to using email, my discussion group – The Grandstand, http://www.thegrandstand.net/forum/index.php and my Blog - Tok Tok Place, http://toktokplace.blogspot.com/ as my means of access with my friends.
Best regards to all,
