I closed my Facebook account after realizing that I didn’t like those old high school friends from nearly 50 years ago, that I indiscriminately accepted or sent friend requests to people who are merely acquaintances, and that I randomly joined groups without fully vetting them. It was too hard to unfriend and unconnect so I set up a new account with a few carefully chosen friends and groups. I happily went from 300+ friends to 30 and from 35 groups to 10. Life is simpler and more meaningful.
