Farewell old friend. I hardly knew ya.

Many years ago, in a former life, I created a Facebook page for this place. I didn't have a concrete vision in mind for it - I just thought it would be a fun experiment. This was back when Facebook seemed like a fun new thing, rather than something that has the capacity to drive humanity off a cliff!

I created the BT Facebook page without having a personal account, which means it's something called a "gray account" - a weird bit of Facebook limbo. Facebook stopped supporting the creation of new gray accounts many years ago, and now it's disabling gray accounts.

I could keep maintaining the BT Facebook if I attach my personal Facebook to it, but I don't think I want to do that - I've never used the BT Facebook page for anything substantial, and I like keeping a certain firewall between my online persona and my real-life identity.

It seems the BT Facebook will be up for one more month and will then get deleted. I doubt anyone will notice though.
Course clear! You got a card.

Sometimes what seems to be a great idea, simply goes nowhere.
Unfortunately, facebook has gone waaaaaay downhill lately.

@Nite True! As for the BT Facebook page, every once in a while someone creates something on social media on a whim and it becomes really popular. But most of the time, social media-related things don't take off unless you have a clear vision for them and you take the time to post regularly. (I did neither!)

And sadly, Zuckerbook has definitely declined in recent years. Facebook still has plenty of users, with most of the recent growth coming from overseas (or from fake or duplicate accounts!). In my own friend circles, I see a lot fewer posts than I did five years ago. I also know a lot of people who have deleted their Facebook accounts or quit checking them.
Course clear! You got a card.
