Its been almost a month since I logged into Facebook and I have to say I don’t miss it. I still have messenger installed on my phone for business contacts but other than that I am Facebook free.
Being Facebook free I realize how much it was such a time waster for me. Facebook does a great job of keeping you engaged once you get “in”. Being I have a lot of friends (probably only about 150 I actually care about what they say) my news feed was covered with crap.
Sure I can star friends I care about but even then if they comment on someone else’s stuff or like something then I get sucked in and before you know it an hour has passed by.
This hour is time spent about from work or “checked out” with my family.
Years ago when I was at this point I grabbed a script that would delete ALL of my friends (5000 cap). Some took it very personally. I swore that I would only friend people that I knew…. that didn’t last.
If I do use Facebook that is probably the way I would do it again. I have neglected my “fan” page for years and honestly I don’t really care about that. Sure most would say thats a big mistake and I could hire some monkey to run it but I’d rather keep my life simple.
Many of my current “friends” don’t even speak english… which is my fault for not doing due diligence looking ad their wall.
So if I do delete you please do not take it personal. I would like to make a list of people I do want to keep but not sure if that can happen. Anyway…
