I announced in the office that I de-activated my facebook account. which was followed by dramatic gasps and inquiries to my well being.
"i am fine. I am fine". I assured. I mean. For those that know me.I LOVE technology and social networking. i am usually the first to sign up for funky new websites, programs or software.
facebook and what it's not. When i was first introduced to facebook, i would quickly write and respond to people who added me as their friends. I would catch up, talk about my business while listening to new family or wedding stories. It was amazing for communication and updating on where my highschool/university and even some cases elementary school friends were. In the past month, i would say facebook for me, became a tool of passively see what people were doing. now. I am going to state this; that is what facebook is about. however. not what i wanted to fall into. If I am not utilizing, communicating and being active. why am i creeping? so i de-activated for the simple fact that I am not active in the facebook world anymore. I have better things to do with my time than to see that a highschool friend has recently updated her status to 'in a relationship" or to look at posted pictures of someone who i would never otherwise hang out with again. it was getting exhausting and taking a lot to see what was happening with the 500 people on my list.
I am sure i will be back. I just need a break away. some time to work on the things i really love. to play in the park or have an extra productive day.
