I & FB=”we are never ever getting back together”

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.Β 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 πŸ™‚ Anyway, I already decided for myself: me and FB are never ever getting back together! πŸ™‚

  1. It’s interesting how FB was really about sharing your pictures and personal stuff with real friends and family, but then some people saw it as a way to collect friends so they can brag they have so many friends. I don’t have a FB account; I was never interested or got around to playing around with it.

    1. I don’t understand that either! First is why would you want some fake friends on your FB list whom you never contact. I am happy to know there are more like me! Thanks Karina for your reply! Best, Ana

  2. The evolution of Facebook is insane. It’s now become a way to collect valuable information on every single person with an account. What fascinates me most about Facebook is how it serves a narcissistic purpose for countless people. Posting their success’ and nothing less, only to glorify their image.

    1. So true! And not always the success is really a success in this case. What disturbed me a lot was that there were people who really believed in this fake image on FB, and they got even depressed because of that! Thank you Lashaan for the reply! It means a lot to me. Best, Ana.

  3. I’m not on fb either and I know for a fact that I exist anyway! It’s almost the other way around. The fb people don’t seems to existing I.R.L. They’re always somewhere else in their mind.

    1. so agree. I am so surprised of how many people share the same vision. Thanks Anna for your comment. And you are right, you do exist, and I think I wouldn’t get to know you even if we both had FB. So happy to be here on WordPress and to have real friends! Best, Ana.
