I like how the tree is sucked up in the black hole
Oh no are you leaving for Facebook as well
Hope to see you son Skype soon
Like I said in my journal, I remember when deviantART was about art
True, maybe I am overreacting. I recently saw someone leave dA, whom I really cared about. I typed quite a long story, telling why her sudden decision astonished me, but that I respect her decision, and that I will miss her, and wish her the best in her future modelling career. I have been supporting this person for 4 years, and all I got back was "You are being rude".
In short, I hate Facebook, for it is the proverbial big truck people just dump something on, for craving attention. And if you "like" anything, that information is sold for targeted advertising. Maybe I will do a blog post someday, listing the numerous reasons why I will never have Facebook.
Lots of people leave dA for Facebook simply just because they are not getting enough attention any more. I am therefore worried when an intelligent person like you says the benefits outweigh the costs. I was afraid you were going to leave; I am glad that is not the case. At least you are doing it like most professionals do (who have Facebook because they need to make money with their art), posting your art on dA, and background info/promotional pics/concept art etc. on the non-sophisticated social networks.
