You know I have a very tumultuous relationship with facebook, right?
I think facebook for a lot of people isn't troublesome because they don't obsessively look at it and really don't use it much but I have a compulsive personality and it drives me crazy!! I obsess about everything; just my personality I suppose.
Back in the early spring I did away with my person account for a few months and it felt great. Then of course I got curious and decided to get back on and see what everyone was up to and immediately got addicted again.
Then after much deliberation decided again about a week or so ago to get rid of my personal account again. I have been trying to pin point exactly what it is that bothers me about it so much.
It's a Waste of Time:
Obviously, this is a no brainer,we are all busy with important things to attend to and jobs to get done. It's a waste of time.
My friend Christy pointed this one out and it;s totally true. Facebook is like one giant gossip session and lets face it gossip never gets us anywhere positive.
It Creates Chaos and Anxiety:
The first benefit I have noticed about NOT having facebook is that I feel calmer. I don't feel the need to be checking and checking and checking every 5 min to see what;s happening. I don't know why we all seem to be so fascinated with what other people who we hardly know half the time are doing every 5 seconds but it really isn't important and doesn't pertain to our own lives. I instantly feel more at ease.
I can't pin point EXACTLY what it is about facebook that gives me the negative vibe but there is something about that seems wrong or like a lie. It's like a disgusting form of entertainment at it's best; worse than a reality show and the sad thing is..........That's why I love it!!!! But then of course I hate it again! UGH!!!!!
I've decided I think it's best to leave it out of my personal life if possible. However, I think facebook is an EXCELLENT marketing tool for any business. Whoever it was who thought of it is one smart cookie.
