Well I finally did it! You make be asking yourself what is so exciting about what I finally did! Well I finally deactivated my Facebook account. I know you are all wondering like why it’s such a big deal and I’m going to tell you why. First of all to deactivate yourself from Facebook or any other social media account in this digital age is a huge milestone, especially for the younger generation to which social media is mostly marketed. Secondly when you take a break or delete any social media account, especially Facebook it tends to be code for something like a struggle or that you have some problem with society. So as you can see not having a Facebook could produce two very different reactions from friends and family, which will always be wondering why you decided to take a break from the giant social media conglomerate.
For me the deactivation of my Facebook account has proven to be very good as I have gotten more accomplished in my daily routine, especially when it comes to reading and my writing. I am now free of what I consider to be one of the biggest distractions of my time. Also I have come to realize that not having a Facebook has provided me with such a refreshing feeling, because you are longer a part of something that is so soul sucking and frankly a waste of time. I mean I am completely free of those dumb games requests from people, I no longer have to put up a Facebook persona (one less thing to worry about no matter how frivolous it seems), and I do not have to be constantly annoyed by the massive amounts of advertisements that flood my newsfeed on a daily basis. Finally, I am able to concentrate on what truly matters my blogging and creative writing. And hey I always think if someone is your friend they will text, call, tweet, Skype, etc., to get in touch with you. Oh and I am now beginning to think that Twitter is the better social media account to have and way less creepy and much more news worthy.
