Facebook Fast

When Trump was elected I found myself in a horrifying and strange new peace and Facebook proved to be the best way to commiserate and organize. Over time, however, my participation has evolved and it has become little more than a soap box for me to screen my views to the world. I have, increasingly, felt uncomfortable with the very idea of posting there despite those few friends who encourage me to do so. Honestly, though, Facebook has become a one man ego show for me and that's not something with which I'm comfortable.

As a result, I'm going to refrain from making posts there for the time being. An initial day of thirty days seems suitable to begin with. Truly, if there are really pressing issues to be dealt with, the short form posts and link slinging off Facebook are likely not the best ways to deal with it.
