My Facebook news feed makes me want to shut off the computer and read a book.
I am as addicted to Facebook as the next suburban lemming, but I’m beginning to tire of all the commercialized status updates. I’m talking about the clever sayings posted from some clever website, the news stories people found interesting, the product websites my friends “liked” and yes, the books they read (I’m as guilty as anyone).
The personal news updates are getting rare. I like pictures of babies, dogs and beautiful sunsets, and I’m interested in 5K times, anniversary bouquets and, yes, good books.
The thing is, those posts might not be any more rare, but whatever algorithm Facebook is using might just put higher priority on the commercial posts. That’s how Facebook is making money.
So to get away from the ads, I think I’m going to crack a good, old-fashioned book.
