So the plan ti break apart my social connectivity has been going fairly well and although I see less of the friends that I enjoyed checking on, I am better off mentally for it. However, as the experts will note, it does give rise to more loneliness but most of the time I am fine with that. The whole Facebook data fiasco helps a little as some of my contacts decided to jump ship before I could cut them off.
I got the notice from Facebook that stated one of my friends ran that app which linked my public information to the outside group but in reality, I had my privacy settings so high that there is no public information. I don’t keep much traceable information on Facebook so one would have to look at my postings and comments to get something but I don’t know how much marketing gets generated by a nut like me. I don’t think I fall into the “standard” model they are trying to reach.
I would be interested to see what the algorithms have figured out about me. Is there something they know that everyone else I know doesn’t? And if so, what use could it be to anyone since that would be such a highly unique item.
No, I think I’m good with the way things are and I will explore other options as they present themselves. I still blog, tweet, FB troll, but I am branching back out into other projects that I have been procrastinating on. If you really want to get a better grasp of my mind you don’t need to scour the internet as I will just share what I have.
While I am breaking down and destroying my social collections from being conglomerated into one massive beast, I am taking these pieces and planting them into new fields of growth to see where they lead to. I will add these links to the BlogRoll menu on the right as well so they can be permanently available as this posting drifts off into the virtual archives.
