I have decided to deactivate my Facebook account.* For the past couple years, I have used the account for the sole purpose of accumulating "friends." Now, Facebook tells me that I have reached my upper limit! So there is little point in keeping the account. Going forward, if you want to be my friend, you will have to come to Harvard Square and meet me face to face.
---*As soon as I can figure out how. Right now, Facebook gives me an error message every time I try to deactivate. There appears to be no escape.
