I just de-activated my Facebook account!… big sigh of relief.
My reasons are few but mainly because I was checking updates just before I went to sleep and when my eyes opened up in the morning it was the first thing I looked at. During the day my laptop is continuously on with Facebook on and when I went anywhere away from that I would constantly check my iPhone or iPad. This all consuming addiction is ridiculous.
As a photographer I’m constantly scanning at my surroundings looking for a shot. But with my FB addiction I only bury my head into a screen. This has suppressed my creativity and all but killed my desire to shoot. I have hated my addiction to FB and it has taken me a long time to kick the habit.
Now after saying all that I do believe that I will return to FB (one day) just with a different perspective.
To all my Facebook Friends, thank you.
