The Book of the Faces again

20 March, 2017 (15:02) | Facebook | By: Ian Burdon

I went back on FaceBook last week; as I said there, it was purely for self-promotion because of Respectable Horror.

It’s been interesting to dip my toes back in, and advertising the book there certainly drew a response. However the main reason I left, the pollution of my newsfeed by increasingly toxic and/or moronic political stuff, has not abated one whit; in fact it seems worse, although it may be that by being away I’m more sensitised to it on my return.

So I’ll be turning it off again soon.

I’m keeping away from Twitter at present too. I like the immediacy of Twitter, and its liveliness, but it is also a cesspool of horribleness to rival even the awfulness of BTL comments in Newspapers (and YouTube). The idiotic stirring of the pot on Scottish Independence has ramped up the stupids even more, so I’m restricting the time I spent there to dipping in every so often to get a flavour, then going and doing something more wholesome instead.

I ought to be writing, of course, and I need to refocus on that.

Aye, life is better not knowing how stupid many of your friends are. And, in my case at any rate, not demonstrating my own idiocy.
