Penryn writer names home 'Dun-facebookin', but only lasts two months

First published in News

A Penryn-based writer has made a very public statement about leaving social networking, by renaming her house Dun-Facebookin’.

Elaine White, who lives on Helston Road, said: “I got fed up of Facebook last year, and was thinking if you come off Facebook people start ringing up and asking if you’re alright. It can be perceived as a statement.

“I thought you should be able to retire from Facebook at 60, and the play on words popped into my head.

“I thought of having a house plaque made, did it for a laugh and put it up, and it just makes people smile.”

Elaine suspended her account on the website in January this year, leaving a picture of the plaque as her last post, but the self-imposed ban didn’t last, and she was back online by March.

Ooooh,

I came off Facebook a couple of years ago and have stayed off. Will the Packet be coming round to interview me, see how I've coped?

Maybe if you put up a daft sign, yes!
