My Name Is John And I’m A Facebookaholic
I did it people, I have reached a week without Facebook. That’s right, I pulled the plug, removed the bookmark, deleted the app on my phone and went completely cold turkey (although I have only deactivated it so far, just in case). Hell, I beat nicotine, I should be able to beat Facebook. I really thought that this would be difficult. Guess what! It is not hard at all. It is actually quite liberating. I had 150 friends or so, give or take. The really important ones, I see regularly anyway, or communicate via email. I see people join up, burn brightly for a few weeks, then disappear, never to be heard from again. What happened, did they get hit by a truck, forget their password, or did they just figure out how pointless the whole thing is and ignore it. And the constant tweaking, it drives me nuts. The privacy issues, the massive database, the targeted ads! Where will this end.
What exactly is the point? Most of the people on my friend list were never even online. I’m sure most won’t even notice I am missing. Hopefully, I do not relapse. I will update again when I get the nerve to actually, fully, completely cut the thing.
