Deleting my Facebook is dramatic? Jan. 31st, 2013 @ 02:49 AM Reply

I deleted my social networking accounts (Facebook.Instagram) about a month ago. Then apparently, one of my friends took notice and asked me why I deleted them. I told him I had no use for them any longer, and he replied with "Isn't that a little dramatic"? So.. Now it's dramatic to not have a Facebook?

Got the same response. Makes them wonder why you no longer want to be a part of something they like.

I think your friend used a really poor word. He/she said it was "dramatic", when I think he/she meant "drastic"

But no, it isn't. Facebook is really dumb.

Not only that, but not having a Facebook account might make people suspicious of you.

Because in their facebook marriage, like donation, jr high drama world that is the equivalent of commiting suicide. Simply deactivating your account for a short time is like dropping off the face of the Earth into seclusion.

I mean, sure, I don't have a Facebook account and I am a bad person who wishes to harm others, but surely not everybody without a Facebook account is like that.

Basically this. Social networking is just awfully time-consuming. I don't really talk to anybody on Facebook, and Instagram is just damn embarrassing. The same chicks posting the same pictures of themselves over and over using slightly different filters, and getting a shit ton of likes. I can't fathom why females need so much bloody attention in the first place. I just don't need that superficial crap around me so yeah. Good riddance to social networks. Feels liberating..

It's not like you're erasing yourself from the internet.

I use FB, but only the IM feature. I rarely check the main page itself.

Most people are connected online these days including myself, dare you disconnect from that loop, you could suffer serious consequences in the real world, including to even being possibly socially rejected to a certain degree.

I would love to start a research on this someday, and care a study in regards to being connected/disconnected from social networking.

Do people really get THAT serious if you leave a social network? I never heard of such cases before.

This reminds me of some news paper article I read a while ago in which someone also claimed that people without social networking accounts were suspicious. They drew that conclusion from the fact that criminals often don't have Facebook profiles (Breivik, Holmes, guys like that). Thus, if you don't have a Facebook profile, you may have something to hide. They also made a claim that having a Facebook account is "part of a healthy and normal lifestyle nowadays".

Makes me wonder if Facebook paid them to publish this.

To put it simply, yes. From what I know, the people who do not have FB have a considerably enclosed social life, do not interact much and keep shadowed away to themselves. This specifically is what everyone assumes of that person who does not have FB or deletes their FB. It shows that they do not want to communicate that much socially.

That'd probably be the word to use. I really don't care if people delete their Facebook. Though I love it, I see how stupid it is.

if you don't have a facebook in 2013 there's something wrong with you. you probably have no friends or social life, or maybe you think you're being spied on. either way you're mentally ill... start acting normal and get along with people instead of constantly trying to play the rebellious anti-culture teen

There's something wrong with almost everybody having an FB account now. Not that I don't, but still, that site is taking over the world. I'd rather everybody I know signed up at NG. :P

Stop lying you had no friends to begin with that's why you deleted it.

Attack me all you want, but I agree with your friend. It's just one of those everyday things now, like having an email. Deleting it tends to be an attention thing (until you go back a month or two later and make it again :3 ).
