Facebook update

It’s been 48 hours since I deactivated my Facebook account, and I have good news. I CAN function without checking the site obsessively. Boyfriend, I knew you had your doubts.

It turns out I’m not the only one giving up the social networking site. Earlier I read an interesting first-person take on quitting Facebook, which you can read here.

Interestingly, some are giving up the site for a “higher purpose.” NBC Toledo 24 reported this morning that many individuals are forgoing checking their accounts during Lent. Turns out Facebook ranks right up there with chocolate, bubble gum and soda as items to give up in order to grow closer to God.

And, of course, those are the same sorts of things that Jesus forsook for 40 days.

    Good for you! You have shed the shackles of Facebook. I helped Little Joe do the same—he is now in a 12-step program dealing with the addiction. They say, once and addict always an addict, so your battle may have just begun…

    So how long did it last? I think there might be some sort of Facebook Patch to help with the addiction.
