I find it funny that everyone likes to complain about Facebook, yet…very few of these same people ever have anything to say about Google, who has *far* greater view into our personal lives than FB ever will. FB doesn’t index our web searches. They don’t image our streets. They don’t save our documents for us. They don’t store and deliver our email. They don’t have their own smart phone platform, etc… etc…
Facebook likes to track a few pages and lets us know where are friends are, sure. But Google has our maps, our searches, our friends, our web chats, our social media, our phones, our documents, our photos, and the list goes on.
I’ll admit I’m guilty of this to a degree, as I’m a long-time customer and supporter of Google. I use GMail, Google+, Google Maps, own an Android phone, etc… It’s just a strange dichotomy.
I have varying levels of respect and admiration for many different people regarding a wide variety of things. Among all of this there is one constant: it’s earned.
Respect is not automatic based who you or others think you are. It also doesn’t necessarily mean I always agree with what you say or do and should not be confused as though it does.
My FB currently very strongly reflects a period of my life that is essentially over and that I’m working hard to move on from. So until I have the will and desire to clean it up, edit it down, or delete it altogether and start over I’m not adding any friends or linking it anywhere. Thanks for understanding.
