If You Use Facebook on Your Phone, PLEASE READ THIS

It's no secret that I deplore Facebook. I use it because I must. Therefore, I am diligent in trying to understand how Facebook works. As a result, I deleted the Facebook mobile app from my iPhone more than a year ago.

Do you like to get the old fashioned, luddite version of mail? Fossil-fuel burning. Ink and paper. Lick and stick. I confess to ardent worship of the antiquated practice of letter writing. It's one reason I send handwritten postcards to numerous children on every trip. Why I mailed over 100 letters in advance of the release of my novel. Why the proprietress of the local stationery shop turns cartwheels every time I darken the door. Lately, though, I've been thinking about letter writing for another reason. I'm sick of being online.
