Facebook Vacation Experiment . . .
So, yesterday something happened that made me want to stay away from FaceBook for a very long time. No - my account didn't get hacked. No - no one stole my identity. No, I didn't get stalked. But someone took offense to my perpetual positive attitude in attempt to be a good friend. And it hurt me. It hurt me a lot.
So - I decided to take a Facebook vacation.
And I didn't realize how hard it would be . . .
I heard a really great quote on the radio today that would have made a really great status update . . . but alas, I cannot post it.
I'd love to find out what my friends are up to - but alas, I cannot get on Facebook and find out. I have to wait and see if they text or email (or heaven forbid, CALL) me and tell me what is up.
I can't even post a link to THIS POST on my Facebook page so that people will actually know I updated my long neglected blog.
When did Facebook become such a major part of our lives?
So - over the course of this 'vacation' and I'm not putting a time limit on it - because I don't know how long I can handle this . . . I'm going to try and determine the good things about Facebook and the bad things - and see if I can use Facebook in moderation for the good and stay away from the bad.
We will see.
Wish me luck . . .
And feel free to let people know I'm updating my blog . . . since I CAN'T! ;-)
