I’ve thought long and hard about this one, but today I deactivated my Facebook account.
There are many reasons to stop using the platform, but ultimately I decided that the Facebook experience was no longer a useful and productive component to my life — and I’m much more comfortable with how other companies use me and my data.
So high school friends of old and family members, please know that I can still be reached via this site, G+ and Twitter.
See you there.
