As I mentioned in a previous blog entry, I have commenced my social media phase-out.
I haven’t posted to my personal facebook in something like two years and have only been activity insofar as I have been updating Suji’s page. But now that she’s gone, I see no reason to continue. Akemi has asked me not to delete my account so as to preserve the memories (and countless photos and videos), so I am otherwise done with the site.
The same applies. I’d have done it sooner, but I discovered a way to post via desktop so I ended up quite active there for a while. But my last post, a dedication to my gal Suji, will be my last. Like Facebook, rather than delete my account, it will simply no longer be updated, like a fly forever preserved in amber.
I have posted all my behind-the-scenes materials to the Dark Mater forum and the prospect of a Stargate reboot has led me to wind down my presence in that forum as well. I was most active in the pugs forum where I posted daily images of Suji, but with her gone, and less general interest in Sharky, that’s another account that will soon be mothballed.
The suppression algos before Musk bought the app were frustrating. Now, they’re altogether insufferable. I used to be fairly active, posting on average once an hour. Now, I post maybe 3-4 times a day but soon will be posting even less. The way this site is run quashes any enthusiasm to use it.
Which leaves us with this blog, almost 16 straight years of daily entires.
We’ll see how things go.
So, how active are you all on social media? And, more importantly, where?
