Facebook: You’re [no longer] Dead To Me!

UPDATE: 9th jan 2011

Peter Donegan landscaping Ltd is on Facebook: www.facebook.com/DoneganLandscaping

I wrote this post here to say so. Its called: Peter Donegan landscaping Ltd now on facebook. Notice the title of the post.

The difference – you just won’t find a pic of my granny and a cat I never owned on holidays in Leitrim with me in a pair of shorts tagged on it, this way 😉

the first way it was set up – ie. as Peter Donegan [individual] on FB you may have.

*note: the original title of this post simply read: facebook: you’re dead to me!

To the post as I wrote it at the time, if you wish to read on…..

But I recommend you read this post called facebook fans for gardeners first.


Like the title says…



  • I am a gardener – so were most of the people I knew there.
  • Some were my family. Some were great friends.
  • In order to remain semi sane, never the twain should mix.
  • One was an Italian girlfriend. It lasted 3 weeks. When I was 15. She found me. It didn’t work out then…..
  • I got an average of 10 friend requests/ become a fan of per day. I told you the last time. now I have to tell you every single day.
  • I really only ever did RSS my Blog into it.
  • You never buy me a pint in real life. I don’t want an imaginary one.
  • Working on a virtual farm is not fun for me. I do not want to work on yours either
  • And finally Dermot O’ Niell is neither a vintage car, a fine wine nor dead.

Then I read this by Paul Walsh who has left twitter

One less thing to worry about…. who’s next

    I have been half-heartedly getting my proverbial toes wet with facebook. Your post sealed the deal: I’m done. Onward with real life.

    Facebook, like Twitter, works for some not for others. You were right to delete your account if it was actually hassling you rather than doing anything useful. I don’t use mine very much anymore aside from inviting people to my birthday and as a handy way of keeping in touch with some friends that I don’t get to meet up with very often – but we usually sent private messages to each other rather than wall posts. I still wouldn’t pull a Walshie and delete my Twitter account though!
