Back in August of 2016, Robert wrote the following when he announced that our blog had a Facebook page, “Yes, it’s true. John and I have brought the blog into the world of Facebook, for better or worse…”
Well, it’s for the worse, LOL! This evening, for unknown reasons and without warning or provocation, both Robert’s and my personal Facebook accounts were deactivated, along with the blog’s page.
The only reason I’m upset is because I have family that live out of state that I keep up with on Facebook and my primary connection to many friends and acquaintances in the industry was via social media.
Aside from that, fuck ‘em. I’ll have more free time now and I personally was never terribly active on the platform. I had already established an account on Parler, so time will tell what becomes of that option.
For those of you that know Robert and me personally, feel free to reach out, and for the rest, we’ll still be here, albeit publishing a little less frequently given work schedules and such.
I find the timing of this interesting and telling. To paraphrase the ancient Chinese curse, we are indeed living in interesting times.
Stay safe out there folks, and remember what’s important. Facebook doesn’t make that list, at least not for me.
