Don’t get me wrong I love the internet. But I have finally just had it with my facebook account and deactivated it. I really enjoyed it for the time and quite honestly the deactivation became a necessity. So many aspects of it was suddenly driving me nutzo!
I do not mind a couple of your thoughts on the election but good grief must we go on and on? Do you really think you’re going to change my mind? Or the friends that get bold behind the computer and you really wonder where those post came from?
In the beginning I enjoyed being in contact with friends from all around the world. I enjoyed seeing the new baby pictures, hearing the latest news & etc. Before long those post grew few and far between.
Post like this started invading my wall very quickly,
“Soaking up the sun by the pool. I love my life!”
Give me a break. You are 64 years old and do we really need a mental picture of you in a bathing suit? Seriously, do you think is information your friends want to know?
“Feeling tired at work…” or “Oww my headache won’t go away!!”
Seriously? This is the 29th time this month! Go to the Doctor! This type of redundant posts cries out to me the person has a serious case *I need attention*
“I’m all pumped up after 2 hours at the gym!” Gee, well good for you! Now why don’t you tell someone who cares? Oh wait, you did – on facebook!
“Put 90 hours in this week, prepared all the meals for the family. I’m just too awesome!” Ok we’ve petted your ego for so long, now you have facebook to do that.
Then facebook suggests that I friend someone? Do they realize there is a reason I have not friended that person? Please quit asking me the question! NO! I don’t want to friend them!
Before long you realize you’re seeing the exact same bandwagon of post from some friends. If they are against vaccinating their children, then every news article ever published suddenly appeared on your page. Some have strong religion preferences to the point of being belligerent so their facebook page is belligerent. You can’t disagree or even offer another view on the matter because they are belligerent! They’re not your friend they’re your belligerent facebook friend.
Oh, and the happy birthdays on our walls? Like who really remembered your birthday except that facebook reminded them?
I am going to miss the good I see on facebook. The cross posting of missing children and animals. There are times when some who risked their lives for us while in other countries and their only communication is facebook. The times I’ve reached out to friends when I desperately needed prayer for our family and I know they prayed!
I do have some amazing friends that have wonderful things but they don’t post it on facebook. For now, I’m going to read a newspaper. I’m going to purposely write a hand written letter to a friend. So long facebook…..This Southern gal will not miss your drama. I have too much going on in my life to deal with it!
