You know what? I don't do facebook. And I've ignored how horrible the people I cared most about really were inside.I'm not certain that facebook would have been the worst way to learn about it.
I've not opened Facebook in over a year now, and I absotively don't miss it.
I'm only on there to promote my comics and other endevours. Its a sort of necessary evil.
I'm the same as Marty Nozz. I avoided facebook like the plague as a personal platform, but I've been convinced I need to use it for my business (handcrafted upcycled jewellery), although I'm still not quite sure it's all it's cracked up to be, and boy is it a lot of work coming up with interesting content to generate that isn't just "look I made another bracelet guys woo!"
It is handy for posting pictures from craft shows and cons. I've got my instagram linked to Twitter and facebook, so its pretty much the only thing on my Facebook page is pictures from events and the occasional video from YouTube. My Facebook page has very little person info, which is probably a good thing.
