It's such an uncomfortable feeling to be de-followed. I sort of didn't like the concept of following in the first place, but now that I'm into a very specific hobby, bento boxing, I can see the merits. You can see who others are following, so you can branch out and explore in a more specific way. Plus it has that "I'm in the club" vibe (something I used to hate but now I like).
I guess we can change. Evolve. Break a habit. Wake up to a new day.
Truth is I was probably de-followed because I de-friended her from my facebook. (I guess you just don't do that!) I started in ernest facebook, myspace, twitter, and tumblr all about the same time. I think I had accounts with facebook and myspace for much longer but never explored them.
It was all experimental. Facebook I've noticed can be crowded with - mmmn - how should I phrase this? Crowded with gum flappers. Also facebook is crowded with game players. Now myspace is all about the gaming. 99.9 percent and I think I've had my fill. Yup. I played on myspace and discovered there are a lot of mean people out there. They want to attack you! Over and over. They say "it's just part of the game." But I think they get a little too much joy out of it. And I don't. So that's when the seed was planted.
It was time to back away slowly.
Facebook is okay but I'm not really active. Every once in awhile I like to do a personality test or something, but it's definitely on the back burner for now. myspace I think I'm going to axe entirely, although I really like my page.
Twitter and tumblr are a different story. I still haven't explored them completely, and they still hold a bit of surprise for me.
