Today marks my second day without Facebook. I made the decision earlier this week to deactivate my account. My reasons are many. Too much wasted time is spent there. I turn to Facebook in order to zone out and have some down time. There are so many projects laying around my house that could be done instead of me sitting in front of Facebook. I want to make wise use of time; time that I don't have much of these days.
Facebook also gives me the illusion of friendship. In order to have a true relationship, I need to email or call those friends that are on my list. Instead of making the effort at contact, I assume I know all that is going on by updated status reports. How shallow that seems.
So, I have survived my first few days of no Facebook without too much withdrawal. I hope to get to a point where I can go back to Facebook without needing to constantly look, or better yet just delete my account and spend that free time composing notes to all my friends.
