Here's Jon Stewart's hilarious take on recent FaceBook developments. Personally I had already decided to 'unFriend' FB, too, ever since the news broke of Goldman-Sachs and RUSSIA sticking their camel noses under the FB tent.

It's only a matter of time before I leave FB, so if you want to check out my pages/wall/photos/artwork/astrology, whatever, I suggest you do it very soon! (See sidebar for link: 'Facebook? Really?' from which, perhaps, you can tell I had serious reservations about joining FB from the get-go. My misgivings are now confirmed.)

Of course, my dilemma is: will closing my FB account leave a sticky residue as experienced when I left MySpace a few years ago? Or will it be a clean break?

I suspect shenanigans will be afoot, don't you?

I'm glad I stayed clear of it from the get-go.

One wonders how Uranus leaving Pisces and moving into Aries and Neptune leaving Aquarius and moving into Pisces will change -- perhaps even dissolve -- the social networking industry.

Will people have the interest in devoting the time they do now to FaceBook once Uranus leaves Fantasy-based, Not Quite Here In Reality Pisces and charges into get-up-and-go Aries? Will there still be the need to connect -- oftentimes with people not seen or heard from in YEARS -- once Neptune leaves Everyone Oriented Aquarius and enters Pisces which may muddy the desire to reconnect?

I know there's a 2012 IPO in the works, but something tells me it may not bring the cash or get the attention they were anticipating when they signed on. Who knows what will happen once Neptune enters Pisces!

Kieron, you're smart - i avoided it for quite a while but got so many You're Not on FB? Qs that i signed up against my best intuition. But as of this morning, i have unFriended FB and feel better for it. jc

Duse! Great astro Qs, thanks! Since both Uranus and Neptune have associations w the collective, i won't hazard guesses. i'm not even certain we'll have the wild west environment on the web that we still have now (seemingly) esp w Pisces' Neptunian links to mysterious crimes, crooks, infections, webs, nets, the military, etc.

Is there really an IPO in the works for 2012? i heard it but didn't take it very seriously since much can happen in the meantime. jc

Yep, one of the reasons Goldman Sachs has become as involved in FB as it has is because they're preparing to offer public stock in the company and believe it's worth billions. Or so say the men who handle my money and advise me on such matters. LOL
