Default Leaving Facebook

About a month ago, I deactivated my Facebook account and today I have no regrets. My wife and I both did it at the same time because we were both spending way too much time on there. Now, if I want to speak to a friend, I actually have to speak to (or text) him or her. Also, my phone's battery can now last until the end of the day (it's a Motorolla, so the battery sucks anyway.)

Last night, my wife and I were discussing how great it's been and we've decided to stay off of Facebook for good. I would recommend to anyone else who thinks they spend too much time on there to do the same.

Yep.
I've never had a FaceSpace account. Too many of my friends are liking & such... but not interacting.

btw: One of the absolute best episodes of South Park talks about this ("You have 0 friends"). Brilliant.

LOL

I'm not quite that old. Although, I was born a curmudgeon... and just grew taller.

Really though, it's more that I'm a luddite. Technology is like a foreign language to me. Woodworking, drawing, painting, and other 18th century skills are more my forte.

I wouldn't be able to go without my Candy Crush.

I've thought about leaving FB before (not because of overuse, but under use). I'm glad I didn't though. I've met some cool people that I never would have met in real life (and probably talk to some of these people more than I do old high school friends). Plus I would miss bullshitting with my Mystie Militia group daily. I've got a nice balance though...I don't have a smartphone, so I'm not checking statuses and updating when I farted or if I'm chilly or whatnot. I do know some people who are a bit obsessed with it though, and would probably break down if they couldn't be on it every 5 minutes.

It was tough at first. Since the FB app was native on my phone, I had to delete the shortcut on my desktop because I'd keep mindlessly opening the app (even though I had already signed out of it). After that, it's been incredibly easy and the only thing I really miss are George Takei's updates.

Good idea J. If you don't make money or do reaearch on the computer everything else is a waste of time. As of now, when I click on FB and don't see any of those red box's in the upper left of the screen, I'm out. Killin' my account is soon to be next.
