When I joined Facebook there were about 70 million users. Seems like a lot of people. Today there are approximately 1.86 billion. Now that’s a lot of users! More than half of Canadians log on and the number keeps growing. The calculation is that there are 10 to 20 million users who died since they created their accounts and their accounts are still active.
I’ve already told Wendy – if something happens to me – don’t let me live on-line! I don’t want a happy birthday Fred message showing up after my funeral! (yes there will be a funeral).
But you may not have to wait until my death to see my profile disappear. Apparently someone trying hacking my account, and the amount of rude political debate has almost got me to cancel my fb account. Now you need to know there are two accounts that are mine on fb. I have one with a gazillion friends…well people who know my name. I don’t use it like I once did and frankly I’m losing interest. Secondly I have a family account – 23 members only and all family. Sorry friends – no one but no one gets in this group who isn’t family. This account will likely stay…so I know what you’re doing.
Which raises the question for me – are people still really interested in connecting on fb? Am I the only one who rather have a conversation – or go for ccoffee or send a card?
