Why I Loathe and Detest Facebook

Alas, I have to have a Facebook account because of my community work. And you can be damn sure that even though the community groups are “closed” and “members only”, that Facebook knows absolutely everything that is going on inside them…

Addendum 23 June 2019: I should point out that once a lobbying action connected with my community work was (successfully) completed, I was able to delete my Facebook account – and have been Facebook-free for over a year. Don’t miss it in the slightest.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
