Upon reflection of my recent Facebook deactivation I struggled to wrestle my urges to use it again. I find it interesting that even after a couple of days of being off it i was still thinking about it. Why? What was i missing? Was i missing my friends? If that was the case, i would pick up my phone and phone or text them if i was that concerned. What power does Facebook actually have on me?
I am a great believer in the positives that Facebook can bring. Bringing family and friends closer together. But somewhere in the myriad of friends it’s all lost into a pile of putrid spam of bragging, complaining, and ostentatious showing off.
It’s come to the point where i will probably be called anti-social by my friends because i am not on there. I think the very reverse is true in that looking at people’s lives and gossiping about them is in its self anti-social.
Plus the fact that the users are helping to grow Facebook through huge advertising revenues whilst the user receives nothing. And under the suspected watchfull gaze of the government. This really depends on how deep you want to go with it though and i think that most of it is probably scare mongering.
