Some of you may have noticed that I no longer have a facebook page and that my myspace profile is mangled. No, I was not hacked. I have been trying to cancel myspace for a few weeks and was having trouble, so I destroyed what was there. I have now reached someone there who is promising me that they will let me leave. I have no grudge against myspace or facebook. It’s hard to explain. I just don’t want to do these things anymore and I started to feel like I had to. So I stopped. That’s all. People will tell me that that kind of networking is vital for my career. Well, I guess I’m willing to go ahead and find out that no one is coming to my shows because I don’t have a myspace or a facebook account. I wish all of you in the social network world a terrific whatever you’re doing. If you still want to reach me, you can come here to my website. I will try to use the time I have freed up by killing those things to update this page more often. A good life, or a hard life lived well to all of you. Louis C.K. ps. I still have twitter.
I Vanessa Prat shall rant: I admire Sir Louis C.K. because I do think he is right. The world will not end without Facebook. I have not had a My Space in 4 years…*shiver* Thing is I enjoy the connectivity of Facebook and I resent having to sacrifice my privacy to have it. Yes, the saying is all around “Do no put on the internet what you do not want the world to see.” That is more than a fair statement, still its the principle. I should not have to worry so constantly by the same people I support keep in business. Can I hurt Facebook by leaving? This lil’ lonesome person? Probably not, but over time, yes. Will Zuck still dance in halls made of gold while this years Playboys Centerfold is going to town on him? Probably so. Still. Its principle. That being said. I am waiting for the next big social networking site. Because its now or never Mr. I Have A Great Idea For A Site. No, I do not have a Friendster.
