No, I Will Never Get A Personal Facebook Account

September 29th, 2017

A long time ago… the year was 2006, if I remember correctly.

I was presented with the opportunity to join a new “thing” it was called Facebook***. It was by invitation only and it was American.

I was and I still am a fairly private person (it used to be called integrity, but I suspect that most people just find it annoying).

I did not fancy the idea. But, then again I got my current e-mail address on a bet/challenge. It is another story.

I declined (many thanks and much love K! It was not for me then and it is still not for me now).

Eleven (11) years later? They say… more than 1 000 000 000 users and the CEO will become the next president of the US? That is… bizarre if you ask me.

If you know me? Whatever account you see? It’s not mine. Alright? It will never be mine ref. title? It will never happen.

*** I might have the original invite stored on a disc somewhere. No, I am not going to post it. Come on!

But why? Well a corporation owning my personal data for an infinity? If you don’t know, Twitter (it is impossible to close an account) and Instagram owns your data forever. Forever? You don’t control your own data?

So? Well I find that unacceptable. In a 100 years? Do you really think that’s a good idea? Never mind what you posted. Corporations. What is the aim of a corporation? Feel free to convince me. I’m pretty sure though. A fair warning?

They own your data (you signed) eternally and it is a corporation = they will capitalize on your “private” data for an eternity?

Think about that for a second. That is insane or as the Romans used to say. Re tarde mentes (it litterally means a mind that is going backwards, hence “retarded” or “retardedad”). Forever, forever ever, forever ever. I say no. I don’t think so. My data is mine. Ultimately it is question of integrity and maintaining it. Am I in deep trouble? I probably am.

My community is getting completely destroyed. I was born and raised right here. I’ve spent my entire life here. I never managed to leave it and now it is being destroyed? It is quite painful.
