I’m getting quite upset. Everywhere I turn, participation in some pretty cool things requires being on Facebook™! Now, I was on Facebook for a few years, but security breaches have been getting ever worse and I’ve suffered as a result. I’ve had a Gmail account hacked, viruses have attcked my computer, and I’ve been swamped with spam, and all could be traced back to Facebook, without any difficulty! As a result, about two months ago, I quit Facebook and have no intention of ever going back to it.
Why, oh why, is it that when Facebook is showing so many more problems, are so many more people using it to promote themselves or their companies? The decision to make some things, including competitions, available only through Facebook is excluding everybody who has had the good sense to either never join it, or to leave it before matters get worse!
Please!! Please, I appeal to all company owners and individuals using Facebook in these ways to either abandon it or to offer those who reject Facebook an alternative to it!
