Did the same thing for Lent in 2011. After 40 days I still didn't miss it at all and was a happier person without being on FB. You won't regret your decision, and I'm truly happy for you. No sarcasm. No bull. I'm really glad when I see people walk away from FB. It spoils too much of what's good in communicating with people on a sincere level.

I check it everyday just to see what my friends are up to. Might post 2-3 times a month, but it's always pics of my kids for relatives and friends to see since they're alway asking about them.

I don't get the grown ups that post 5-10 times a day about random crap.

I think in 5 years or so, FB will be like AOL....a thing of the past.

Default Re: I am officially giving up Facebook

I have a facebook account. Signed up about 2 years ago when a guy told
me he wanted me to help put together a kick ass Gamecock facebook page,
complete with Practice updates, recruiting info, personal editorials about the
teams and programs etc..... sounded like a good idea. I created an account
and the whole idea went nowhere. Dude that was going to start it, moved to
Houston, and is on F/Book now about once a month.

I connected with a few old friends from HS days and some ex co workers,
the majority of which post about once a week to express how badly their
lives are going. ... the few family members that I am "friends" with there are
going through their own problems and I make it a point not to get involved
with their feuds. With all that, I have basically gotten down to signing onto
F/B about once every couple of weeks and even then, I'm back off of it in
about 5 minutes.

I agree that it has gotten ridiculous. I just keep mine to keep up with friends that no longer live in the area and for some planning of group events. I can't stand when people post about every little life problem they encounter.

And, no offense to the OP (but maybe he/she can provide insight on this question)

But why do people announce when they're leaving facebook?
If you're going to deactivate your account...ok, just do it.
So people you have relationships know you're leaving and won't think you are ignoring them. It is just a polite announcement like saying goodbye at a party.

I quit FB on July 31, 2013. I haven't missed it a day since then. It's one of the best things I've done. I feel like I have my life back. I never realized what a time suck and a completely waste of time FB was until I stopped being on there. I don't plan on going back. One of the best decisions I've made in recent months.

Some people like to use it WAY TOO MUCH. I love the ignorant opinions of the hottest topics of the day baked with half-truths. It's da bomb!

I'll probably phase it out of my life in the next year

I don't use it near as much as I used to. Too many adds, they change things around too much, and yes, too much drama. I stay on it because I have a sister in Seattle and she has a 6 month old little girl, and she posts pictures and videos of her a lot. That's how I get to "see" her everyday. Also have family in Tennessee, Atlanta, North Carolina, and Rock Hill. I don't post a lot though.

Twitter is A LOT more fun and useful than Facebook.

Default Re: I am officially giving up Facebook

If you're going to do it, go the whole way and actually delete the account. That way you'll know if it's really what you want. How? Because the only way the account actually gets deleted is if you request it and then don't log in for 14 days. If you find yourself thinking, "Man, I need to check facebook," then you'll end up logging in and undoing the delete request. But if you're anything like I was when I deleted my account (2.5 years ago) then you'll never miss it.

I technically have a twitter account, but I never check it, so it's basically a waste. Besides, the only "people" I follow are my wife, two of my colleges, and I think three friends from those schools.

Also had issues with deleting my page. First they wanted to know why I was quitting. Then they wanted to me to fill out a survey as to why I was quitting. Then they took the time to ask me several times not to leave. Then they said there would be a 24 hour wait, and If I decided to log back in within the 24 hours my page would not be deleted.

They are very persistent.

Hey, at least they changed the waiting period, it seems. Welcome (back) to a life with a little more freedom.

The only reason I log onto FB is to check Gamecock articles posted. Usually it's something someone already started a thread on in CT, so I don't even waste my time. Who gives a flying **** what someone ate for dinner?
