Facebook Farewells

Hi. I’m Jake.

If you are reading this message, then I most likely Facebook messaged you to let you know we will no longer be Facebook friends.

I want you to know, though, it has little or nothing to do with you. It’s not you. It’s not me. It’s Facebook.

It's the ads that somehow know what my friends and I talked about two seconds ago. It's the Russia thing. It's the Cambridge Analytica thing. And frankly, it's the comment threads. So yeah, you might be partly to blame.

But I'm annoyed, scared, violated, and bored. I’m done with Facebook. I’m done.

Going forward, I plan to use my time for Netflix, riding bikes, eating lots of food, walking dogs, doing improv, painting, whittling at the barn, and hanging out with friends in real life.

If we are actual friends, please find a way keep in touch. If not, I’m surprised you read this whole letter. That’s neat.

Bye! I’m Jake!

Facebook not for dogs.
Stick finger in Josie mouth.
Stick with real life friends.
