Updated position statement on Facebook

In short, Facebook has become, for me, a glorified RSS reader, and little else.

This updates my previous position statement on Facebook posted in June 2010. All the insidious tinkering since then by the House of Zuckerburg makes little difference to the fact that I regard a Facebook profile as a necessary evil to maintain a reluctant frontier.

Will Goog le plus take over its mantle? Don't be evil.

Facebook

The proliferation of social networking sites is a subject that makes my brain want to explode. Myspace makes me cringe, for two reasons: (i) the encourages some really bad, lazy web layout; and (ii) it's now owned by Rupert Murdoch. Facebook has achieved flavour of the month status, and thanks to peer pressure I've beefed up my presence there.

My Facebook page is here, or if you're already a member you can go straight to my profile here.

I'm currently developing the Cricketista group. Feel free to join up and post a message on the wall.
