Facebook is out of my life for good Apr. 23rd, 2011 @ 09:45 PM Reply

Well, I started using facebook when I was 14 or so. I was on every now and then over the course of a few weeks. But then, after a while, I started becoming a regular, on every other day. Then every day. Then a few times every day. Eventually, the whole "Bored, Text me!" statuses got to me and I started becoming anxious over facebook. I woke up in the night and just "had to check" even though I knew I never had anything new to see. I would occasionally dream that I was on facebook and sometimes would post things in my sleep. I was becoming an addict to the goddamm site...or rather, a junkie. Today, I put the hammer down with all the self restraint I had left and deleted it once and for all. I honestly am hoping that someday the site goes bankrupt, as it has robbed me of many many hours of time I could have spent doing other things. Zuckerburg robbed me of hours that I never will get back, and I feel immense regret. But, today, finally, it's gone.

I feel more relieved now than I have in a long time. Kind of pathetic, but true. Has anyone else had a similar situation with facebook?

Nope.

I go on, chat with people, check for news, and get off of it.

No, mainly because i'm introverted and i don't find it interesting to see uninteresting status, join pointless groups or see pics of the party i didn't go to.

People on facebook get way too comfortable. I had a friend who ripped On-Star out of his car because he didn't want them listening to him, but he's comfortable posting every detail of his personal life to some corporation's website forever.

Not really. I've been using it for about 4 years, and I average about an hour a day.

People join Facebook to join shitty games. I go there to see if my friends send me any kind of message, but nope just invites and "presents" from those shitty games.

Are you going to do the same with Newgrounds now? Maybe you should swear off of the internet altogether.

Nah, every time I go on there it's just no-lifers updating their statuses about what stupid thing they did that day. Thing is, I couldn't give a shit less. Those worthless wastes of life are nothing compared to me, as I am superior to everyone on my friends list no matter what happens, ever.

There is an actual link to delete your profile, but it is hidden and difficult to find.

Seriously? I thought that once you pressed the Deactivate My Account thingy you had just two weeks untill it was really deleted.

Look, a racially integrated religious commune in the middle of blackest africa is a GENIUS idea, and don't you let Congress try to tell you otherwise!
