My Life After Facebook
… deviates by about 0.35% from my life during Facebook.
That’s not a random percentage either. I’m assuming that on average I spent about 5 minutes a day on Facebook (not that I actually went on everyday, but if I had to take a good guess at it, 5 minutes/day makes sense).
I’d like to say that there was some grand purpose in my leaving, but in reality, it’s just Facebook. It is/was just another social network that I didn’t use that often and didn’t care too much about. A typical Facebook excursion would consist of checking out new photos that a friend put up after traveling, a quick “Happy Bday!” post, and a sarcastic (read: smart-ass) remark on someone’s wall or in reaction to a new status. That’s it.
My Timeline to leaving Facebook
Thus, due to all the reasons stated above (actually, largely due to the creepiness of it figuring out my university friends from a fake account), I made the bold claim (probably as a Facebook status) that I would leave Facebook if I was ever forced to join Timeline…
In my next post, I’ll fast-forward several months to my Facebook-departure and list a few things I miss about it, as well as reactions I’ve received from my friends and family.
