So I’m actually not all that internet-savvy. I just have no real interest in it. Social media is all well and good when I’m bored, but I’m just not all that into it like I had been in the past.
Still, as the blog grows, it occurs to me that I probably need to branch out a bit. I’ve had a Twitter account for awhile, and started being more active on Facebook, as well.
But as it turns out, Facebook doesn’t allow someone to have more than one Facebook profile, because of reasons that supposedly make sense to someone out there, so my kink profile was shut down.
What’s a girl to do?
It appears that the only option is to create a Facebook page. But trying to figure out how to keep it separate from my vanilla profile has proven a massive challenge. I’ve found plenty of tutorials for how to keep my vanilla profile off of the kink page, but can’t find anything for how to keep my kink page off my vanilla profile.
I’ve got family, friends, and kids on my Facebook friends list. We’re not out to Kazander’s family and friends, we’re not out to all of my friends, and obviously I need to keep the kids on my friends list off the kink page.
I mean, there’s no room for error here. I absolutely, 100% need to keep the two separate, and there doesn’t seem to exist any cut-and-dry tutorials for how to do that.
I can’t find a single damn thing about it.
To be honest, I’m kind of considering just deleting my vanilla FB account. I’m hardly ever on it anymore, I have the phone numbers of the 3-ish people on my friends list that I’m actually interested in conversing with (and the 2-ish people I would like to keep conversing with, I can easily get their numbers), and I’m just too much of a misanthrope to pretend to be interested in the lives of people I don’t respect and don’t care about.
Five years ago, I could do that. I just don’t have the energy or the desire to do it anymore.
So if I choose to delete my vanilla account, obviously that’s not a problem, but I’d rather have it available, even though I hardly use it. The inlaws will occasionally post cute pics or videos of the spawn while she’s staying with them, some of my vanilla friends post hilarious memes, and if there’s any way I can avoid deleting it, I’d lean more toward that.
But so far, I haven’t found a solution. It’s annoying AF. And I don’t have the patience to deal with this for weeks or months. In all honesty, I’m probably just going to end up deleting the vanilla account.
Because Facebook sucks.
