I represent a small group of people who have chosen to permanently deactivate from Facebook on March 7th.
Although we are all aware of the website’s convenience, we are abandoning Facebook for the Promised Land that was once known as life. In order to demonstrate our acknowledgement of the website’s obvious capabilities, we created an event page using Facebook. You can find it here:
On behalf of dwindling humanity in the face of population overload, we cordially invite you to check out the page, and hope that you will consider participating in deactivation on March 7. By gathering many participants in a show of solidarity, we hope to create some awareness and generate mainstream discussion on the true implications of web 2.0.
On the page you’ll find a heated and sometimes hilarious wall-debate outlining many different reasons why one may or may not choose to take up the cause.
Although Facebook is a convenient means to communicate with other people, it does not represent a substitute for human interaction.
Let’s de-clutter our lives and do away with this uselessness together.
Time is running out.
De-complicate, Communicate , Deactivate.
Hope to see you there.
