Social(media) Faux Pas

No one noticed when I quit LinkedIn months ago. But everyone lost their minds Friday when I purged my Facebook account. No one seemed to notice that no one was unfriended from any other social media site I am active on... Pinterest, Instragram, G+, YouTube, Ello, etc. and no one was removed from any of the Facebook groups and pages where I am an admin. I still have the same e-mail addresses I've had for decades. I still have the same phone number I've had for 14 years, which, incidentally is listed and my name is not a secret. *sigh* Send me back to 1988. I want to write you a letter and maybe send you a mix tape. You should get it in about three months and I look forward your reply three months after that. Is it even possible to be out of patience with instant fucking everything?

While agreement on this point is not a requisite of understanding, surely you can appreciate that there is a significant difference between something such as LinkedIn and Facebook: the former being professional in nature, the latter personal. For many, being arbitrarily removed from someones Facebook friends list is seen as a slight on a personal level. Frankly, the fact that so many responded as they did should speak to the connection they have with you, real or implied.
