Facebook messages pro-forma response

It doesn't work but it's worth trying

Dear Human,

I offer you my apologies for the bulk copy-paste message, and for the lateness of this reply.

You’ve recently sent me a message on Facebook. I’m so sorry I missed it, but I don’t check my Facebook messages.

If you wish to contact me, you can use my mobile number +61412671082, which is on Signal, Telegram, Whatsapp, iMessage and SMS. or one of my email addresses, such as [email protected], or [email protected] I also have presence on Twitter and more other social media sites than I can remember.

All my best, Dan

P.S. I’m sorry if my having a Facebook account gives the misleading impression that I actually use their messaging function, But I only have a Facebook account so that I can use it to promote events and sell stuff, not for general personal or business correspondence with real humans.

In my day job, I research the kind of data analysis that Facebook does , and it takes the fun out of spending my precious free time being their guinea pig. If you want to read about that, you can do so here: https://livingthing.danmackinlay.name/in_wild_air.html#ideas-the-multi-armed-bandit
