Dear Facebook


Sure you meant no harm. You were only there to CONNECT me to IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN MY LIFE. To SHARE important events, photos, links and jokes. Well, I'm too curious. Checking Facebook  became like an itch, something I did without noticing how I scratched too much. I didn't want to leave you, FB, I just didn't want to spend so much time with you.

You offered few solutions to my problem. Naturally, I understand that it's up to me to control how often I log on. Well, my control sucked. I needed something more drastic.

This is it. I unsubscribed from everyone.  I get no updates, from any of my 724 friends though we're still friends and I can check their pages if I like. But know what? This is working. You're slowly losing your appeal.

And should IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN MY LIFE want to tell me anything over FB I'm still there.

I'm sharing this because I'm over-sharing in general today (see post below) and also because I think there might be others out there with similar issues. Break free.

  1. Maybe you should explain this method in this survey https://cornell.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_cLO3N59g37z7i7y about limiting one's use of facebook?
