I got a new phone and facebook doesn’t like it.
It finally killed me.
Here’s the thing with smartphone apps – they are too difficult for me to read; I can’t adjust the font or text size.
The solution is simple – just use the browser. Web pages can be zoomed in.
However, since getting my new phone and browser, every time I try to visit facebook, it locks me out of the account and sends me an email.
Then, when I say it is me after all, facebook insists that I change my password.
The first time is annoying; who likes thinking up passwords? After a while, it gets more tricky to think up a new password that contains some kind of memorable rationale.
Today it finally got me beat. I can’t remember the password, so it’s goodbye facebook I suppose.
I will take this as a sign that a break is needed. If I return, I will have to think up a new name but my password can return to my original one! On the other hand, it is a lot of setting up – and that is daunting; it took me ages to get into all those groups, to like all those pages, and to get facebook providing me the feed experience that kept me coming back to be updated on music and arts.
I suppose I can put those energies into twitter, wordpress, feedly and so forth, because one thing is for sure – I can’t go back to being fed news and sport on mainstream media.
