    Very glad to see that you’ve brought Becoming Minimalist to Facebook. I will check it out and sign up when I am home. The network at work doesn’t allow for any social media.

    I’ma fan now too. :)

    Can I suggest that you change the sub line of your blog though? Since you’ve moved away from sharing your own day to story, the blog isn’t as much about your suburban family as it is about minimalism generally. Just a thought. :)

    I will become a fan for sure!
    How about you keep the sub line of your blog and do more posts about your suburban family story and experiences…those are my favorite.

    i find this funny because i just deleted my facebook account today, moments before reading this. ;)

    personally, i found the site distracting and not conducive to anything worth my while. part of my journey in minimalism has included paring down my internet commitments. the less sites i feel the pull to visit, the more time i have for other, more valuable endeavors.

    that said, i wish you luck over there. i hope you will have a better experience than i did!

    thats why i never got a facebook, i’m already on myspace and don’t need more than one social networking site. plus i just use it to keep in contact with friends and relatives that live far away.

    Oh my gosh, I thought you were going to tell me how to make my Facebook experience more minimalistic. I feel like it’s contributing to clutter in my inbox and in my head sometimes!

    I thought the title was ironic, because it seems to me that cluttered, awkward, slow, cumbersome Facebook *itself* is the opposite of minimalist. But I do know what you’re trying to do, using what is available. Oh, and yes, I clicked on the Fan button.

    FB is a drain on my time, so I try to be “minimalist” in my usage of it. In fact, my status updates come from a Twitter feed most of the time.

    @Tabatha, My feeling, and that of others I’ve talked to and read from, is that MySpace is for kids, politicians and musicians (the latter two simply to get exposure). I have no account there, and only click on MS links when I absolutely have to.
