I Quit Facebook—and You Should, Too(erickarjaluoto.com)

almost 6 years ago from Eric Karjaluoto, I design things like Emetti, Pixaver, and Campnab—plus client gigs at smashLAB.

    That’s a personal call each of us makes, many times a day. There’s no shortage of content to read, and it’s difficult to know which things are worth the time.

    I’m not saying this article is worth your time, or John’s for that matter. It was an article I wrote for myself—that a lot of other people just happened to read.

    I could have made it shorter, but I didn’t want to. I made it as long as I thought it needed to be.

      I suppose it's because I am not a person who writes for personal satisfaction or self-reflection, or if so it is kept privately.

      When you have "You should too" in the title the strong implication is that this is information for others, not just reflections on your own experience.

        Yes, I did put that in the title, and it is for anyone to read. That said, the length of the piece gets to be my call. If you, or John, feel that it’s too long, you don’t have to read it. That’s your call. :-)

        This might sound snarky or defensive, but I don’t intend it that way. I wrote the piece I wanted to write, at the length I felt appropriate. If some choose not to read it, for that reason, I’m OK with that.
