Being without Facebook is, these days, pretty much the same thing as being without an e-mail account or a cell phone — you can do it, sure, but it’s gonna make life more complicated. Back in the day, when people started joining it, it was just another Sixdegrees or Friendster or whatever the hell. I declined.
It became a thing. I was not unaware of this, obviously. The focus of social interactions has slowly but surely shifted away from where I generally hang out. I find that the people I don’t interact every day — especially those of my friends who aren’t in Finland — just aren’t there… because I’m not where they are. But I’m a stubborn asshole, and I’ve held out. Still, for a good while now — a couple of years, at least — I’ve been saying, “I know I have to join it… but not today.”
