That’s right I deactivated this f*cker last week.
1 week later I feel great.
I changed jobs last year, it would be considered a promotion with more responsibility, better career prospects, salary etc. But I also was given an office to myself, unlimited internet capabilities etc. This meant more free time, internet time, facebook time - I was estimating 5 to 10 mins/hour for maybe 10 to 14 hours (??) - that’s a shitload of time wasted.
I felt the time could be better spent reading, lifting, sleeping, being with my wife (and starting a family).
It came to a point where I say “fuck this!” - Facebook is taking too much time and I researched “facebook addiction” and deactivation looked to me like a great option.
My sister thought I deleted her (WTF?). One of my friends thought my account was hacked.
I’m not sure if I’ll delete the account. My friends and family from where I was born and where I grew up are on there - I now live away from both where I was born and grew up. Maybe if I collected the email addresses of the people I wanted to keep in touch with I CAN DELETE Facebook altogether.
Did you ever feel like doing the same?
Did you never sign up for sites like Facebook and glad that you didn’t?
