Don’t Just ‘Like’ Life, Live It!
I made this comic in haste because I got such a big response from folks who feel so darn conflicted about Facebook. I thought it might be a funny instructional at a time when we are all wanting to begin new relationships to things. I wanted to also say that after more than a month off of Facebook and I REALLY DON’T MISS IT AT ALL. There are a few people I wish I had gotten some contact info for, but I am amazed at how much better my life feels. My internetting on the whole has changed quite a bit from just this one cut. I am on it less and care about it less. I had paired down blog reading already, but now I don’t do any of those guilty pleasures I would do on occasion. My attention span has gone up and I just feel better. A few people came to find me off of Facebook, but the majority of people I was “in touch” with there have never made a peep, which either means they haven’t noticed (probably) and/or don’t care that I’m not there to blip away on their feed. So there you go!
Seriously, if you are having conflicted feelings about Facebook just try quitting for 90 days and see what it’s like–you can log back on at anytime and have your account totally in tact. It might just be a good experiment. I think you will be surprised by how easy it is to get along without it.
