>Just deleted my Google+ account…
The real reason is just that I find it all quite boring…
Don’t get me wrong, information is a valuable and fascinating thing, but streamed 24/7 through my computer it’s a bit like surfing the internet without search. In fact, I feel like I’m being surfed.
Hundreds of pieces of data which other people seem to think is important flow like a river through my account. Why would I want to take time out to sift through it?
After a week or so I have 58 acquaintances .. so after 52 weeks that would be…over 3000 people dumping data on me.
Why would I want to meet friends on FaceGoo who I could meet in SL or Iwz? It doesn’t really make any sense to me. If I can spend 15 minutes with someone in VWs why would I want to FaceGoo them? I don’t really have people I don’t meet either in RL or VWs, I’ve never been one to keep a constant contact with people I don’t see…I sort of figure ‘well, we’ll catch up next time we meet’.
Then there’s this thing about real names… I really hate real names of avatars, I mean, I don’t know who any of them are! I get to know someone in SL, then they try to friend me on FaceGoo with their real names, like I should recognise them…duh!! I don’t know anyone’s real name…it’s just an Avatar Alias (and, if I am told it, I forget it instantly). Why would anyone want a real name?
Twitter I find quite useful, like a message board, I can say hi or goodnight if friends are roaming free on the Interweb and they know my location …useful.
Avatars United … well, it’s dead before it starts I would guess, I mean who would spend time on something that died already once? It was terminated by the Boys when they couldn’t be bothered to keep it going….. and they aren’t exactly know for their competence re. social structures. I could be proved wrong…we will see.
So, I must say it’s a bit of a relief, one less thing I have to do daily, and one less thing for my mailbox… good.
Sorry, but it’s just not for me, I have more important things to do and counting my ears is more interesting.
