Getting off Facebook. Posted on June 10, 2020 by Adam Young Leave a comment here if you are a Facebook friend that wants to stay in touch.
I guess I’ll try Twitter. Adam, have enjoyed you so much. Your music, your thoughts. I appreciate what you post.
Letâ€™s stay in touch please. Iâ€™ll miss your music.
Sorry to see you go. I hope you will reconsider — at least freeze your account in case you change your mind down the road. –Jeremy
I just want to see more sax videos.
Stay in touch!
You can always block what you donâ€™t want. This means you are leaving messenger, too. How will we arrange family reunions?

Keep in touch Adam!
I’m guessing – but could be wrong – that leaving FB might have to do with the FB climate regarding race. I’m pretty sure that you and I are like minded when it comes to socio-political issues. It has certainly been depressing seeing some of our friend’s racism come to the fore when they post on FB. I remember after the election in 2016 my fiancee left FB b/c she couldn’t stand the Trump supporters and them constantly spewing his vitriol and/or denying/forgiving the awful things he said. She couldn’t stand witnessing it and felt it better for her mental health to simply remove herself from it all. I see this moment as similar. However, I will say that I see a glimmer of a reason to be optimistic. Since George Floyd’s death became a national and then international issue and has opened/reopened a dialogue on racism (possibly in a way not seen in decades – only time will tell) I have seen some people actually shift their opinions and become more open to the idea that racism is a problem and recognize things like white privilege and that BLM is not something to be threatened by and that saying ALM can be offensive. It’s hasn’t necessarily been a sea change, but there def has been (in my opinion) more people becoming open minded about systemic racism than the other way around. Just my thoughts. Take care buddy.
Good for you. I’ve been considering it
I should have reminded people to tell me who they were. I assume this is cousin Bob Young?
And especially Mark Zuckerberg’s handling of it. THanks for finding me here. It is appreciated.

Will do. Maybe more so this way….
That I can make happen. I’m doing a lot of composing and arranging. There will be more…probably posted here.
I’ll leave the account in place to keep someone else from stealing my identity. I’m very greatful for your friend ship and support and wise voice…but I’m done with many of the racists that have been emboldened and enabled by the platform.
Hey! Enjoy. If you are on twitter Iâ€™m @00mrscooper. (Was gonna be a school account but wound up personal).
I have an inst, but I never look at that.
Good luck! Iâ€™ve enjoyed seeing your posts over the years!
I will leave you my contact info.
Ping. Don’t lose track of me 🙂
Will follow on Twitter. I deleted Instagram as well, not doing anything owned by Facebook.
Who needs bloody Facebook anyway. You still got an IRC account 🙂
Good call. Once I figure out how to get off FB and stay in touch with about 200 people. I’ll join you. That’s a tall order, I know ðŸ˜”
I understand completely. I went dark for a year. But re-engaged recently. Much to say on the subject but Iâ€™ve learned mostly to hold my tongue. The world would do well to remember the difference between animated face to face conversation and online prattle. Letâ€™s catch up soon.
See you on Twitter! @brentholden
