April Fool!

OK. Yesterday’s post was an attempt to confuse, bemuse, and amuse. I am NOT abandoning Social media.

Nonetheless, the social media landscape HAS changed since I first joined years ago, and not for the better. Today I am recommending the following actions, as originally outlined by my friend, Gwendolyn Reece on her own Facebook page:

Fellow FB users: I want to encourage you all to do three things. 1. Lock down the way in which apps can track you. This is part of how we are being manipulated in very dangerous ways. I did that this morning. See the link below for instructions. 2. Block people. If you have people who are commenting in ways that you would not tolerate them saying stuff like that around you in person…if you would not maintain a relationship with someone in person who said whatever is being said…it is time to block. Don’t give that person a platform, don’t give them access to your mind…if you would walk away from them IRL and not have them in your life, don’t have them in in your life here. 3. Is it a true friend but you just can’t see more of what they post without it damaging your IRL friendship? Maybe it is political but not the type of thing that makes you want to send them out of your life, maybe it’s that they just post too many stupid memes. Unfollow and check in at intervals.

That’s it. I’m done.

I just can’t do it anymore. When I think of the amount of my life I have totally wasted on social media, all I feel is a deep, creeping shame. All the things I could have created with that time are lost. All the places I could have gone. All the people I could have met. All the books I could have read.

I am totally unable to believe I squandered so much of my life here on this site. What the heck was I thinking?!!

The Cambridge Analytica scandal is just the final straw.

No more. I probably won’t be bothering to delete any of the posts here, or shut this down. Instead I’ll leave it up as a warning to others: get out while you still can.

Goodbye.

Jane’s Walk: Hope and Change in Callowhill – Friday, May 4 at 6 PM – 7:30 PM

Friday, May 4 at 6 PM – 7:30 PM

Walk Leader: Bob Bruhin
Meeting point: SE corner of N. Broad and Noble streets
Free. Rain or Shine.

The railroads are gone. The factories are closed. The dimness and fear that inspired David Lynch have blown away. What next?
We will visit locations where change is actively happening in the Callowhill District, and discuss the impact of change, both positive and negative, on the neighborhood as both an historic district, and as a vital, living community.

Walk time: 90 minutes

Meet Bob at SE corner of Broad and Noble – he’ll be in a blue “Eraser Hood” tee. The walk will end at The Trestle Inn, 339 N. 11th St.

Accessibility considerations: uneven terrain. dogs welcome. low light.
