I'm seeing a pattern

Remember last year, last year when I got totally fed up with facebook and de-activated it, only to give in to the temptation and emails from friends..and logging back in.

Only to feel like a loser yet again.

I'll be honest. What I love about facebook is how much more I get to hear about the daily lives of Pinkie, Ironman, Sido, Graybelle and the rest of my family. I love seeing pictures, and being able to offer written words of encouragement or humor for freinds that are having a rough day.

What I don't love is the need I feel to put a post up, when in reality I don't want to. The things I post here, on my blog, are out in the publicly consumable realm of the internet. And I know that. But the things I put on facebook should only be for my "friends", but they truly do become comsumable by anyone who gets the news passed on to them.

So yet again I am feeling disgusted with the whole idea of social networking. Which sounds counter intuitive considering I'm stating that on a BLOG! I sit here and I struggle, struggle with just giving it all up and de-activating it, or maybe I should just take a break.

I'll let you know
