A while back I deleted about 3,000 facebook friends. As Jane is embarking on her tweenage-hood and exploring social networks, I decided to close mine down.
In fact, I’d asked my husband to use Facebook differently, because I worried about our privacy, and he said to me, “No, you use it differently.”
And he was right.
I’ve stripped Facebook of anything too intimate, I’m not a fan of my children’s schools, or sports and I certainly am not friends with their teachers.
I’ve made Facebook a lot like twitter. Close but not intimate. Sassy, but not revealing.
I’m ready to accept friends and friends of friends again, and I’ll just be using it differently.
