Good for you! I’ve thought about deactivating mine since I’m waaaay too attached to it, but I don’t think I’m going to do it just yet. I don’t get out much right now since I lost my job, plus I have a tendency toward serious bouts of depression, so it helps me feel somewhat connected and is pretty much the only way I interact with friends right now since they aren’t keen on calling or hanging out. I have had some drama connected with fb, and I know I post too often and tend to overshare, lol. I’m hoping once I find a new job and develop some new relationships and have more things to occupy me, I’ll have the confidence to cut the cord.

WOW…I don’t have the courage to delete mine!

I don’t even post on people’s walls anymore, but I am always checking my feed…what am I hoping to find out!?!? I have been thinking lately of either making my friends list just immediate friends and family and unfriending those I am not close to anymore or just deactivating my account. I find myself looking at photos of people that I barely even know and feeling a tad jealous at times of things they got to do that I didn’t….so it might be time to get rid of it!

This post def. made me think about my Facebook habit…

Good for you, knowing that its a time for you to stop the madness! I use it as a way to network and keep up with people who aren’t in my life on a regular basis. I hate having to feel obligated to call people, and its a great way to be involed in their life without having to actually call them! It works for me, and I hardly ever put a status on my fb account, maybe like once every 2 weeks if I’m lucky!

I’m really careful how I use my facebook. I actually just deleted a bunch of albums the other day because I don’t feel the need to post every single picture of our lives. I cringe when I see one person who has albums and albums of wedding pictures, honeymoon pics, and then baby bump, then baby. It’s just too much and takes away from privacy in general. Where you do draw the line on what’s public and what isn’t? I avoid attention whoring on there as much as possible. I also have immediate family blocked from posting on my wall. It’s a personal thing, but they don’t need to know the lame stuff I post. Since I’m not posting for attention and adoration, they don’t need to see it. I won’t deactivate mine, but I make sure that the information is protected from those who will use it for bad purposes.

I did the same thing a few years ago actually right when I met my Fiance. We were on FB alllll the time! Like we would both be in the same room on our computers on FB. Then one day we both decided alright this is enough! And deleted both accounts. I’m sooooo glad I did. way too much drama on there for me.

I’ve been throwing this idea back and forth in my head, but I keep deciding against it since it’s how I keep in touch with my family.  I know that there’s texting/calling, but if I depended on that, I’d NEVER hear from anyone or know what’s going on.

I really do hate today’s technology and need/want for it.

I have not deactivated mine.. I used to be an addict until I had my son now he keeps me pretty busy lol. But good for you I know how much strength it must have taken to do that lol. FB is very addicting.
