I have, for many years, objected to joining Facebook. My reasons aren’t that different from the lists you can find online about why you shouldn’t join, or why you should quit.
Frankly, when Facebook started to become a household name, I didn’t think it would last very long. I thought (and maybe hoped) that it would be a passing fad. So much for that idea. As much as I loath to admit it, Facebook seems like it’s here to stay. For some people it even seems like Facebook is the Internet.
What does this have to do with paddling? Well, it’s difficult to find others around me with similar kayaking skills and interests. I’ve tried some other tools like Kijiji and Meetup, but haven’t been very successful with either of them. Facebook seems like it might be a good candidate, but how do I know whether it fits into my “big picture”?
Am I a dinosaur or a conscientious objector? This is your opportunity, if you are so inclined, to convince me one way or the other. Go ahead and rant if you like, but please keep it respectful.
