Social networking no more.

I've deleted my Myspace and Facebook accounts. These websites have collectively become a hopeless vacuum of time; time better spent doing other things. Join me in the revolution!

I gave up on MySpace and rarely visit Facebook or Twitter. Social networking is definitely a time drain, but it also has it's promotional capabilities. I'm still trying to find that happy medium.

Eh, I can't say either of them have led me to work. Maybe once or twice over the course of five years or so. Not really worth it to me, but to each his own.

I deleted my Classmates account last week! Felt good to remove myself from that antiquated social network that never quite got it right. I've never had a Facebook account and I've certainly considered killing my personal Myspace account. I'll leave my music Myspace account up, though. I agree with the comment about the useful promotional aspects of social networks.

Well, as far as promotional aspects are concerned, I'm sure it works for some folks, especially musicians. I never really felt that these sites gave me any more exposure than the blog and website already do, nor did they ever yield any substantial amounts of new clientele. All they really are is one giant, nauseating circle jerk. Status updates and tweets? Who the hell fucking cares? "What a great weekend we had in the mountains! Here are some pics!""just got my new iPhone, stoked"
