Selfie Book Can Suck It

I’m sure I could have put that title a little more politically correctly, but I haven’t the time nor energy to waste finding the right words for a platform that hasn’t the time nor energy to care about why I actually signed up to use its service.  I guess that would be the best way to express my sentiments on the matter.  Add to the fact that I can’t ever seem to get access to the information I’d been led to believe would always be available to me – hence why I “like” pages, or “join” groups, or add people to my friends list – I find my current state of disdain for use of their “product” well within reason.  Simply put, I joined a service and adhered to its rules, and then it changed its rules. And not a single time it has changed its rules did those changes benefit anyone but the service.  So here I am, happily blogging again – on my own domain, on my own personal website.  No ads. No inundations of junk I never wanted to see.  And everything I want to see? I see whenever I desire.  And best of all – absolutely best of all – I don’t have to look at selfies day in and day out, from the same people, over and over again.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not anti-selfie.  I’m really not.  Take a selfie here and there.  Go on vacation and take selfies.  Everyone’s doing their own thing and enjoying their vacation time, and I think selfies are definitely warranted if you’re so “in the moment” you want to capture it for your memories.  I get it, and I promote that in every way.  But the overwhelming amount of narcissism that pervades Facebook (and Instagram) on a daily basis is more than I can handle, most days.  So I’m fine just letting Facebook be what it is, and hanging out here until I can have a little more control over my social media experience.
