Still Can't Handle Facebook's Ads

It's been a long time since I last tried Facebook, and meanwhile, it seems more and more of my friends are using it. There's no doubt Facebook is a great way to keep up with friends. It is almost spooky how good Facebook is at finding people I know but haven't talked with in a long time.

So, I thought I'd try again to see if perchance the advertising had improved since last time.


I didn't see anything I would call pornographic, but it was still too... seductive (I guess that's the best word I can think of) for me.

Maybe the advertising improves after you "train" Facebook in what kinds of ads you are interested in seeing... but I don't feel right about subjecting myself to those "marginal" ads while I'm waiting for the system to start showing me good ones. I also don't want to set a bad example for others of you out there who are wondering whether to start using Facebook.

So, if you want to communicate with me, you're still limited to face-to-face, postal mail, phone, fax, email, web site, blog, Skype, LinkedIn, or Twitter!
