Deleting my Facebook Account

It’s Time…

Well Facebook, it’s been a good run. But, now I have to say good-bye. I’m tired of being the product that you selling to your advertisers. Your only saving grace was that you didn’t have a very good search tool, so as long as I was careful about what I put up, there was a reasonable expectation that it wasn’t very visible to the outside world.

So I monitored my privacy settings, and made my groups, but now it’s too much. I don’t really talk to anyone on Facebook anyway. Mostly you just steal time from me the same way that TNT does with Law and Order re-runs. Frankly, I don’t have time for it anymore.

On a practical note, now I am going to have to find some other service to use for sharing photos with my family. We sort of defaulted to Facebook, but if there was something good I might would be willing to pay for it. As a wise man once said:

“If you are not paying for it, you’re not the customer; you’re the product being sold.”

So does anyone have any ideas about a good (not free) photo sharing service that would be super easy for my parents to use? They aren’t computer illiterates or anything. They are just busy people and I don’t want them to have to work very hard to see the pictures on their iPhones.
