Farcebook

This afternoon I have pulled the plug on my Facebook account. Why? Let me count the ways!

For too long, Facebook has focused on what they wanted the needs of their users to be.

They have removed posts that do not breach so-called “Community Standards” while at the same time allowing material that is a blatant breach of those same “standards.”

For me, the final straw was constantly having posts declined as “spam” simply because I was including my email adress is calls of interest for research for my current non fiction project.

As of today, I can be found on Twitter (@bron_hansen) and on Google+ (Bronwyn Joy Hansen). My avatars on both platforms are the same as my avatar here.
