Dear Facebook Friends Its Not You, Its Me

I’ve been flirting with the idea of cutting Facebook back to a more personal space for a while now.   Yesterday there was an incident that prompted me to remove a select group of people.  I decided that it was a good time to make the change to a more personal space.

If I removed you please don’t get offended.  I’ve struggled with this choice for a long time.  I’ve made some great connections on Facebook, I was invited to speak in Malaysia because of Facebook, I’ve become great friends with people I may never have otherwise. But I have a lot of not-so tech savvy friends and family who are on there and given how much I’ve moved around it’s a great way to keep in touch with them. They kept getting lost in the shuffle of all of my other connections.  I know I may miss out on making some great connections with people because of this choice, its part of why I struggled with it for so long.

You can still see blog posts and other links on my Facebook page. I created it a while back  more to make sure no one else did than because I grew a giant ego. Unfortunately someone already has librairanbyday on Facebook, but in this case it will be useful.

If you’re a fan of the shoes don’t worry they will still be on Flickr:-) And of course, you can still find me on twitter.

Of course in true librarian style here are some links to some things I read as I was thinking about this:-)

  1. This is a decision you will not regret. I have kept Facebook as my personal/real life friends network, and I love it that way. It’s such a great way to keep up with friends and family – especially those who live in different parts of the world. There are so many other professional network tools out there, that you’ll hardly miss FB as one.
