I run a Twitter account with hundreds of international followers, though, and also I write a blog that is fairly well circulated in some circles. Both of these activities are better suited to my interests than FB.
I can't decide if I'm picturing Dwight Shrute or Andy Bernard saying this...
Sorry, I guess that it sounded a little odd. What I was trying to say was that my personality lends itself better to Twitter and to a blog, where I can communicate with many people in a casual way, than with FB, where I can communicate with a smaller group of people in a close way. I like interacting with lots of people from many different places and backgrounds but not getting too close to anyone.
The blog is a lot of fun because I like to write, and it's an opportunity to write without the pressure of being graded; I can be experimental and creative on it. I didn't mean to sound pompous about it. It only reaches about 25,000 people, so certainly the audience is rather limited.
Like the poster above, I like my FB-free status and intend to keep it, regardless of external pressures.
