I created a Facebook account in February 2006 but I haven't logged-in since March 10, 2010 (they haven't deleted in spite of my long absence). And, surprisingly, I'm still able to breathe and function in my day-to-day life. I found things to do long before Facebook was known, heck... before the internet was available.
I found a good article by Audra Rundle in The Huffington Post regarding her journey away from Facebook.
Two months ago, I was sitting in front of my computer one evening when I finally lifted my eyes away from the screen. I had logged onto Facebook to space out and relax 'for a few minutes', yet somehow nearly 20 had already passed. I looked over at my husband cooking and listening to music in the kitchen, and all I could think was, "I could have been talking with him these past 20 minutes." Instead, I'd spent that time 'catching up' with real-life strangers and fulfilling self-imposed social obligations. -Audra Rundle
