#031 BONUS Breaking up is hard to do
Play • 19 min
I just ended a 13 year relationship... with Facebook. Now, before you laugh (ok, you can laugh), this was a bigger deal for me than I'd like to admit. For over a decade I ran a social media business that relied heavily on the existence of Facebook - and its impact on companies and customers - to grow and thrive. Much of my reputation and self worth is wrapped up in the existence and success of that company, and so part of my reluctance to quit Facebook, apart from questions about its utility and the healthiness of using it, was the potential hypocrisy of quitting now. In fact, I found my own reluctance to pull the 'delete my account' trigger so surprising, comical and revealing, that I decided to record a catharsis of sorts which I've published on the One-Eyed Man podcast. This monologue style recording is a little out of character for me, so I'd appreciate your feedback and thoughts on the approach. And the topic, of course. I explore not only my decision to quit Facebook but the reasons I'm still so dependent on other social media.
