You've probably seen this in a million places from other people but...

Please don't crosspost anything of mine to Facebook. Twitter, fine, go for it, because I don't connect RL/family/work to Twitter. But Facebook... D: EEK.

I don't have a Facebook (or MySpace, etc) for a reason. To me, the mixing of public (family & work) and private (internet and friends) is supremely creepy. (What? I grew up in the 90s. Giving out RL info online was the giant "HOMG NOOOOOO" paranoia of that decade, and it stuck.) I can't think of any way that it would cause me serious issues, but I'd rather keep that line firm, okay? I am not going to put myself in the position of having a "this is what we don't talk about on these websites" discussion.

This reminds me of a conversation I had with a friend/old college professor of mine where I happened to mention the existance of fanfic. She stated, "I can't believe people actually do that". Thus, I have never mentioned those 100 fics in the corner. Nope. Don't exist.

I go to the internet to get AWAY from people in my everyday life. It's kind of like being a superhero in that I have my secret identity and my regular identity.

Internet, you are getting more failtastic.

Exactly. My family knows what I read/write (my Grandma found my porn fic ages ago—le trauma), but they don't know where to find it. My work knows nothing, and it's staying that way.

YES! I am stealing this explanation for the next time my boss suggests I get a Facebook.
