No Facebook for a Week?!

1 Mar

I was given an assignment to not use Facebook for a whole week. Let me tell you it has only been two days and it has been hard. I am usually always logged onto Facebook on my phone and when I get bored, I go on and check out what’s going on. I haven’t been able to do that and I almost feel a sense of withdrawal. I don’t really use Facebook to post stuff and keep people updated on my life. I use it to keep in touch with my friends, to post pictures, and do what everyone is notorious for doing… stalking. I think stalking can be too harsh though because you aren’t really “stalking” you’re just looking up different people who you may or may not be friends with.

As a student, not being able to log onto Facebook has helped me to not procrastinate as much and actually get my work done. When I go onto my computer, since I can’t use Facebook I resort to getting my homework done which has helped me to feel less stressed so far. As for my friends, it doesn’t really make a difference that I’m not on Facebook because I communicate to my friends through other ways such as texting, and I see them on a daily basis. Facebook is primarily for keeping in touch with people you don’t see as often. Since you already don’t see or talk to them, what’s a week not being on Facebook matter?

As a professional, when I graduated from college I had already planned to completely delete my Facebook. At that point in my life I don’t think it will be that important anymore as I can already see it being a less prominent thing in my life now. Facebook is tricky when trying to get a job, and with me trying to become a future educator I need to be very careful of what I post online. I think it will be easier to just delete Facebook.

Even though it’s only been two days and it has been a little hard not to log on Facebook, I can see it not being as big of a deal later on in the week. I’m already starting to get used to it. Plus, I still have Twitter! J
