Facebook fast

Over the past two months I have felt that Facebook has had a grip on me. You can relate, I'm sure of it.

You say, I will be only five minutes, but end up being on for thirty minutes. One post leads you to looking pictures, commenting, updating your status and checking your feed. I know you're guilty of this. I can't be the only one out there?? 

Facebook is a huge time waster and I have realized it's not always positive for me. As I write this post, I deeply feel the ache to install the application back on my IPad and forget this whole 1 month Facebook fast, but I want to get rid of the Facebook addiction.  
I don't need to know every detail of your life, nor do I really care about what you ate for breakfast. Is that really changing the world and do I really need to know it?

Already, I can feel the regret of deleting Facebook, but I hope my time away proves I don't NEED to know everything about you and I waste HOURS on it.

I will update you about all the extra time I now have!! Is Facebook a time waster for you?? Are you addicted??? Could you go a month without checking it???

Pretty sure I'm addicted. I've gotten better with Twitter, but I'm on FB quite a bit still.

I'm trying to fuel my Facebook addiction into twitter, it's so much faster, or least I think.. How do you restrain yourself?

Definitely an addiction. I try not to check it too often throughout the day. I do know what you mean, "just 5 minutes" easily turns into 30 minutes without a problem! Crazy.

My dearest Sarah, you are full of wisdom to have figured that out. I know too many people who don't see it. FB is a black hole. If I didn't have homeschool connections or book connections on it, I would definitely let it go. Good for you!

For me, facebook is a bit of both good and bad. It's sooo hard not to compare my life to the version of others' lives that they share, but it's also how I stay connected with my best friends from high school. Without facebook, our friendships would die because we live all over the place! Therefore for that reason alone, I can not get rid of facebook.
