Frustrating Dilemma

Thanks (or no thanks) to Facebook, I rarely blog these days. I like the instantaneousness (is that a word?) of how Facebook works. I can post an image or make a comment and virtually instantly I can get a response or at the very least, a thumbs up like from someone. Now, I've heard rumblings that Facebook is going to start deleting posts or put some sort of an expiration date on them. If that's the case, I'm going to have to go back to my blog here as I want some sort of "permanence" to my posts for my own reference at least.

Part of the charm of Facebook is the time stamp in that you can go back and find stuff from a few years back and it's still there. I still would like a "search" feature on Facebook, but oh well. I guess nothing lasts forever. I still like Facebook better than Twitter and MySpace, but I suppose all of it really is just a monumental waste of time. Since I write anyway, I don't really notice too much and I'd rather write than play video games endlessly.

In any case, it is a dilemma if Facebook does change, but again nothing lasts forever...
