2015: The Year without Facebook

It has come time for me to part ways with Facebook... at least for a year.

Why am I doing this?

  • I got tired of Facebook's pushed updates to my phone and email.  I know I can unsubscribe... and I do.  But then they find a way to update the preference and privacy settings and start sending me updates again.
  • I have a stellar staff member who has taken over COCUSA's Facebook page.  (Thank you Kyle!)
  • More importantly, I had many times in 2014 where I heard someone say: "I sent you a Facebook message about that."  The problem is/was: I didn't check Facebook regularly enough to see those messages.  (And when they are COCUSA summer staff telling me they can't work, those are messages I need to see.)  Now they won't be able to message me. Problem solved.  I hope.

If you're still inclined to follow me online, you have a few options.

You can follow this blog via email or RSS feed (links on the left on the main blog page.)

You can move to a different social network with me (twitter.com/robopheaney).  I'll be auto-posting this blog, my family's blog and other interesting tidbits to this Twitter account.

Facebook- It's been real. It's been fun. But it hasn't been real fun.
Maybe we'll check in with you in 2016. See ya!
