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.
