Facebook created order out of chaos," Bader said in an interview with us. "But that order was very constricting. It trained us to share in a certain way, to curate our identities, to put forward things we wouldn’t be judged for. … It can be stressful after a while.

Life Without Facebook

I made a decision to deactivate my Facebook account.  Why? Because I found that it was impacting the way I live and distracting me away from real life.  I’ve been without it for a few weeks now and I must say that it feels liberating.  There are pros and cons of course and I’m not going to say that I will never re-activate it, but for now it feels good.  I feel released from information overload.

Pros:-

  • I don’t look for potential Facebook moments, I just enjoy moments as they roll over me.
  • I don’t watch my kids play through the screen of my smartphone, I just enjoy those moments for real.
  • I no longer get distracted by incoming updates on my phone (to be fair, just change the settings or removing the FB app will also solve this).
  • My pictures and information are no longer owned by a billion dollar company.

Cons:-

  • It’s not as easy to keep in touch with friends and family.  Although, this just highlights the need to make more of an effort.
  • People may interpret my online silence as rudeness! - please don’t, I’m just not online.

Ok, that’s it.  Let’s see how I get on.  I’ll stick with using tumblr and twitter for a while.
