Operation “Abyssinia, Facebook” complete

My Facebook friends recently saw my note that said, in essence, I’d had enough of the continual rigamarole over Facebook changing its policies, and I was leaving the social network soon.

Well, “soon” has arrived. Last night, I finished harvesting the e-mail addresses of my Facebook friends. Then I unfriended them all and removed all personal info, except my photo, from my profile. I’m keeping my profile active to maintain the fan page that mirrors my 3 Chords A Day music blog. (That FB page is titled “3 Chords a Day” [no quotes]; the blog itself is at http://3chordsaday.com.)

It’ll be interesting to see how I fare in a Facebook-less world. Like many users, I became addicted to it, frequently checking my wall, joining pages and groups, and posting on others’ walls — from my computer and my smartphone.

I’ll be posting more frequently here, and I’m still connected on LinkedIn, Twitter, Ping.fm, FriendFeed and YouTube. I’ll probably be testing how all those services work with each other, so I apologize in advance for any trial messages that go out.

Aside from the linked sites above, here’s my other contact info:

E-mail: editor@charter.net, kevinpaulk@acnrep.com

Hope to see you around the Web!
