And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

I am not big on joining sites but today I joined DC because On DC, I have found many like-minded people regarding Social Babysitting (Networking).
I have no use for these sites (FB, Tw, etc) but I don't object to others joining the herd. If that is what they want. I do object to their pervasiveness, to the point many things can't be accessed online unless you login through one of the babysitters. I am beginning to wonder if other sites are getting kickbacks from the SB sites.
I figure if others want to use them and be part of the herd, so be it. But don't lock me out of major websites (ABC "instant index", PBS 10 min. early preview Downton Abbey) because I don't use them! WTH
Some on here, mentioned that those of us that don't want to use these sites must not know how to use them, or their privacy settings.
Excuse me, but I am very computer/internet savvy. I am fully aware of settings (ROFL, I won't even get into that). It's still feels like a herd mentality to me. And I feel like I am being forced down the loading chute.
I was opposed to Facebook...at first.
At the insistence of my oldest son I got on it and decided that I like it. I can keep contact with my friends and cousins all over the U.S...and world for that matter.
Then my son set up a business page. At first I was opposed to that, but I went with it.
You can not imagine the amount of business I have done with that. For a free account its been worth lots and lots of money.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
I don't Facepage, Spacebook......I've never even been on their sites......This forum is about my limit. I belong to a couple other forums, but rarely if ever post. This site is the one I reply on & even after being here for 7 or 8 years, my post count is pretty low. I'm more of a lurker than a poster.
I also find as the world is crumbling around us & the more stupidity seems to reign, that my desire to post anything is getting less & less frequent..........
