I live for the most part by the motto: “if it isn’t broken, why fix it?”
I’m referring to the new Facebook changes for the most part, but there are plenty of other sites that apply.
I admit I am not good with change if I am completely content with the way things are. But I can adapt if I think the changes are necessary.
Are they really?
I try to read what I can about how we should be dealing with these changes. Maybe I’m not reading all I should or the appropriate articles, but it seems the articles I do read, all have warnings about privacy….serious privacy invasion.
I’m trying to decide if it’s my age, or the fact that I’m an introvert, or just a private person? But it seems going online is a double edged sword. You want to connect, but the price of your entire private life available for everyone to see is the sacrifice you must surrender to do so. I’m not embarrassed by anything I’ve done in life. I just don’t feel like my life should be up for broadcast, to people I don’t know or want to broadcast to.
Over the last couple of days, I’ve been diligently trying to do things to my Facebook page to help cut down on what is being or going to be revealed. It seems strange that there is a ton of hoop jumping to go through to make sure that I still have some control over my own life. Shouldn’t it be the other way around? I should be granting permission…right? Thank goodness I have a teesy bit of tech-savvy, I feel for those that are stumbling around their pages, or worse, completely oblivious to what is happening, and how to deal with it.
I hope they are fine with the changes, I really do.
Why is there such a need to reveal so much?
On the internet war room table…What is this leading to?
I’m waiting to see what the new changes actually bring. But my finger is hovering over the profile delete button.
