Last year for Lent, I gave up facebook.
I enjoyed being off fb so much that I made the decision to delete my profile entirely.
I stayed off for two months, and while I didn’t miss most of it, I found it a bit tricky not to have. I missed seeing pictures of friend’s kids (I have a far flung bunch of buddies), a few good memes, and the ease of arranging things. So I rejoined.
And I’m glad I did. The really positive things about off and then on again are many – I have a nice clean timeline, only months old and edited with the new privacy limits in mind. My friends list is much neater – full of cool people rather than a list of people I like mixed in with people I once sat next to in biology. I spend much less time on there – typically a five minute check in every evening or so, with the occasional cute baby photo binge. It’s so useful for co-ordinating certain things and for catching JLL things I might otherwise miss!
Now I even have a page for this blog!
What do you think of facebook?
