Ragging on Facebook again

I owe LiveJournal a sincere apology for forsaking it for Facebook. That horrible place makes me miserable all the time. I seriously can't look at my FB feed without either seeing something I can't un-see, or getting my hackles up because of someone's Tea Party attitude, or ending up inadvertently fighting with someone. But, see, that's where everyone *is*. I can't help that that's where everyone spends all their time these days.

Dammit. I miss this place. I suppose I perpetuate the problem by not spending my social networking time here, but I just despair of the "social" part of it. There's hardly anyone who regularly reads LJ anymore, and it's depressing to feel like you're howling into a void. But at least, I guess, I could use it for the "journal" part. I kept a paper journal for many years, and never minded that nobody else read it.

Anyway. I'm really sorry, LiveJournal. You are infinitely superior to Facebook, for what it's worth.

My attitude towards Facebook is, it's my place. If I don't like what I see on it, I just unfriend people. They're not actually not my friends anymore, I'm just choosing to use a tool without them. I also dropped a couple of time-suck communities that lead to a lot of scrapping and angst, even though they were allegedly all lovey people who are awesome and constantly giving internet hugs.

I spend a lot less time on FB as a result, and am happier for it.
