Why are we giving up facebook?

WARNING ANGRY RANT!!

In under 2 months we'll be officially closing down our Facebook & Instagram Business Pages for our 21,000 + followers. We're taking a moral stand against what we believe is a poisonous beast that ruins lives. It's changed the way we as humans interact with each other and it goes against everything we believe in. It's stifling our own creativity and we're sick and tired of feeding IT every private moment of our lives and having you suffer as a result.

We don't need likes and comments to make us feel important and vindicate what we do OR to make our business look "trustworthy", you can simply tap the ABN in our footer menu and look our details up OR just drop in and say hello! For us it's time to return to the 80's & 90's way of communicating......by phone or a visit. Unfortunately, due to certain restrictions, we can't operate this site without an email, so you can reach us through email on the contact page of this site.
 
We'll be trading as normal and free of our moral guilt here on our website and you're welcome to join us by subscribing to our newsletter at the bottom of the home page or you can simply bookmark our page. Over the coming months we'll be working on our own social content, to deliver you a more private, personal and relevant message unique to you.
We really appreciate your support and hope to see you soon!

- Tom, Natural at Home

Hi Elise, Primarily it’s our interaction as humans which i’m concerned about. Increasingly, over the last few years, I’ve noticed more and more people with their heads glued to a mobile phone, barely glancing up, only to be further enticed by what notification is buzzing. I’m 39yo and back when we were kids we interacted with each other, kicking a ball, riding bikes, etc…..everywhere I go I see less of this and more 4yo children playing a game on a phone than not. So my gripe extends far beyond social media and just these instances, in fact the bigger concern is mobile phones……location, privacy, cameras, social media, pay by phone and all at your fingertips, it’s dangerous and when you think about it we are already living in a virtual world, are we really living? it goes deep. Taking ourselves off Facebook and Instagram both personally and as a brand are the first of many steps we’re taking to NOT be a part of it as much as we can. I’ve already decided to sell the iphone, get a camera, get a street directory etc…., i’d rather live in the world I remember. The irony is that we have our own website and elements of what i’m speaking of intertwine so there is a balance, however I’m doing everything I can to reverse time, in my own world at least! As far as the algorithms go it’s forever changing, they want you to throw money at it, which is fair enough, but are the statistics they give you OR your “reach” even accurate? They have been proven to be untrustworthy, so it’s anyone’s guess – Tom, Natural at Home.

Would love to know more about your reasons for leaving. Was primarily a preference with how we communicate with one another? Why do you say immoral? This is something I have thought about doing (and how to do) many times for my business, particularly because when Facebook changes the algorithms we get next to no contact with our followers and our livelihood hangs in the balance. We are far too reliant on the beast.
