Why did I leave FaceBook?

My Resolution for the New Year, and new Decade is that I am opting out of FaceBook. I deleted the apps from my mobile devices and will no longer post. Initially I shall not delete my account, primarily because it is very hard to do that.


  • I am increasingly annoyed with FB’s lack of recognition and understanding how social media has divided societies and impacted politics around the world.
  • I cut all adds on Facebook, but they are becoming ever more intrusive in attempting to monitor my privacy
  • Social media and mobile devices have had an awful impact on the younger generation.
  • My original use for FB was to keep in touch with my extended, internationally based, family Most of the younger generation had the sense to leave FB some time, ago. I am belatedly following their lead.
  • The upcoming 2020 elections in the USA is going to be very partisan. Although I don’t get any “news” on FB now, I don’t want to endure seeing anymore “share” notifications! I am VERY worried about the direction our country is going, whether lead by Right or Left.

I’ll maintain my Instagram account (yelromatx) for sharing the occasional pictures, but the majority of our pictures will continue to be posted on our website:

For references to why I came to the decision to opt out of social media on FaceBook:

Happy New Year for 2020 and all the best for the new decade!

Welcome to Adventures with the Texas Morleys! We are going to attempt to use this site to share with our family and friends our experiences, adventures and travels.

Rather than post on FaceBook, we’ll use this site to share with our friends. We’ll post a few pictures here, but the majority of all of our pictures are on

This is a learning experience so please be patient with me.
