Why I chose to deactivate Facebook

I choose to deactivate my facebook for the next year or so. I still plan to take a ton of photos and go on adventures with my family. I feel like too much was caught up in the whole hype of politics, parties and e-invites communication got lost to me. There’s been so little sincere connection with people who matter the most to me. I want that to change. I want to make photo albums and make phone calls.

This doesn’t mean every photo I took is now lost. I just deactivated the social media plague until I feel like I want to return. I saved photos to make albums for my son. Those things really matter, not trying to keep face and small talk.

I’m excited that 2017, is going to be a lot more silent for me.

  1. I had considered deactivating but feel way better in just deleting it altogether. Although Facebook did make it hard to delete, it kept saying my password was incorrect so I had to go back in, change the password, then delete it with the new password. Anyways, I totally support you in going without Facebook (even if it’s just for a short time).

    1. I have freed up so much of my time not getting notifications every 10 minutes and watching drama unfold with posts on the election etc. I miss the live video streams of some people like Gabby Bernstein, but otherwise I have been so much happier.
