For a while I’ve been thinking about deactivating my personal Facebook account for specific reasons, well, mostly because I often waste so much time scrolling down the screen and looking at people sharing quinoa recipes or endless selfies. Ok, I know what you look like! Yes, quinoa is nice but no thanks I don’t want to see 20 recipes about it. What’s with the self-motivational posts?! I can’t stand them either. There are more things I hate seeing on Facebook, but I won’t go on as I’ll sound like one massive moaner.

I think the final call for me was seeing people’s comments about disasters ; when you think you know the person well and then they make or share a post that’s, quite frankly, offensive I sort of want nothing to do with them. I’m tired of people writing or sharing a status in reference to terrible and horrendous disasters and then to go on to  be quite offensive, but wait, in order to redeem themselves they something at the end like, ‘But I’m not a racist.’ Yeah. Go eff yourself. If you thought you had the intelligence to voice an opinion about something… well, please get your facts right before making ignoramus statements and perhaps spend sometime discovering new information before spouting one.

I remember when my friend told me she didn’t have a Facebook account my reaction to (albeit very dramatic) was like, ‘Whaaaaat. The.’ Now looking back I wish wasn’t a complete dick about it; I think because it’s the norm to have it and if you don’t you sound like a social ludite.

So it’s an au revoir to Facebook while I do other things with my time. So no dawdling around and procrastinating. Go and make time for other things.
