maybe it’s me, but…

I like Twitter, Tumblr, goodreads, etc so much better now I’ve turned off all the notifications.

I call it Antisocial Bitch Networking.

It works for me.

    I'm fixing to quit Facebook. It's starting to feel like that scene from The African Queen in which Humphrey Bogart is slogging down the river and finds himself covered in leeches.

    Who ARE these people who come out of nowhere and want to latch onto me without any introduction or explanation? Get 'em off me!

  2. I could not agree with you more. Once I turned off my notifications, it totally got better.

    And FB… WTH. Crazy. Thinking of just dumping that place. Drives me to the brink over there.

    I have total antisocial bitch tendencies thou. I'm ok with that. 🙂

    So let me get this right. You like being a member, you just don't want to know what's going on….

  4. i have all notifications turned off. by default. everywhere.

    also, wth is pindloo ?!

    I get updates from Goodreads from my friends and it lets me know when I have a PM but that's it. With Twitter I only get notified if someone mentions me because yes, it IS all about me.

    Did the postal seal get there yet? lol

  6. Kris says:

    KZ: *snort* Exactly. And one of the reasons why I got off FB. People expected me to be friendly and stuff.


    Amara: “I have total antisocial bitch tendencies thou. I'm ok with that. :)”

    Well said. 😉

    Jase: What's your point?

    Tygrys: A pindloo is a type of loo that we have here in Oz, especially for people who have just eaten curry. True story.

    Tracy: “With Twitter I only get notified if someone mentions me because yes, it IS all about me.”

    So not surprised. *snerk*'

    Oh, and I'm pretty sure that it's coming overland by platypus now.

    Well fuck. Since those things have to spend half their time in the water they'll be frolicking in puddles when they should be delivering mail! Besides that they only go about 22mph! I'm thinking Oz needs to re-think their postal services. Just sayin.

    I actually like the Goodreads notifications. But then, I'm not getting bombarded by Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc, on top of it. 🙂

  10. Kris says:

    Tracy: We don't do miles here, regardless I'm pretty sure that they go slower than that.

    Chris: Yeah, and?? 😛

  11. Tracy says:

    Oh bother. 35.40 kilometers per hour?

  12. Kris says:

    Definitely slower.

  13. LOL, I completely understand. I'm totally off of facebook. If I want to talk to you you'll know.

  14. K. Z. Snow says:

    Re. Facebook: It isn't that I'm unfriendly (unless I'm in one of *those* moods), but most of these damn people don't even bother introducing themselves! Like I'm supposed to know why Chacha Gonzagas wants to be my “friend”? I have more important things to practice my ESP on.

    And don't even get me started on the plethora of dumbass apps that allow all these glommy strangers to bombard me with fruit baskets and vampire bites and biological warfare agents and whatever-the-fuck. Jeez. A person can only take so much.

    (Thanks for the outlet, Kris. I think I've been bottling this up for too long. My ear lobes turned purple about six months ago.)

  15. Kris says:

    Patti: And, if I want to talk to you, the entire planet will hear about it. 😛

    KZ: “I think I've been bottling this up for too long.”

    O.o No kidding.

    I don't mind the GoodReads notifications AT Goodreads, but I hate the emails. I wonder if it is possible to have one without the other?

    Still haven't joined Twitter, but secretly stalk…I mean checking in on a few people…including you and Jared Leto 🙂

  17. Kris says:

    Surprisingly not the first time my name has come up in association with Jared Leto. 😛
