Yesterday, while reading some of the new posts, I landed on the James’ post concerning his thoughts about the FB (please, check the post here What its like outside the social media circle ). James, I so understand you and believe it or not I kind of experienced the same.
I must tell that I do not have FB profile for almost 8 months, and counting. I deleted my profile because…I don’t even remember why I did it, but I am so happy I did it.
The idea why I decided to write about FB is because after I deleted the profile, some strange events occurred to me as well, which I thought to share. When I met people which soon became friends of course the first question was “How can I find you on FB?”. After I said I don’t have one, people were startled. There was a situation when someone told me that I do not exist if I don’t have FB. Yeah, people tend to overestimate the FB importance in our lives. Sometimes my sister would tell me news from FB, but it’s strange because I wouldn’t know those persons even if I had FB, because many of “friends” on FB are just strangers I never spoke with.
FB became an indispensable part of people’s life, with all its advantages and disadvantages. And because of that people who do not have FB are seen a little bit out of the picture. You can live without FB, and more than that I can assure that I am more happy now if I compare to the time I had it. And by the way I do exist 🙂 Anyway, I already decided for myself: me and FB are never ever getting back together! 🙂
