Suddenly, in the digital age, a personal decision like logging off Facebook is not in my hands anymore. It is inextricably linked to my “friends”, work, groups and notes. It does not matter if I continue to gag over photographs of candles shot with a flash, or kill myself over someone’s umpteenth picture of their boyfriend’s stubble. And clearly invasion of privacy or voyeurism are non-issues.

“You have to get with it, or you will be left behind. If we are not in these spaces then we don't exist”, comes a stern warning. (Oooh! I’m scared, mommy!)

You get plastered with new labels – ‘Technophobe’, ‘media idiot’, ‘tech-hater’. It does not matter that you love the internet to bits, or you are excited by digital advancements. You are not good enough, because you are not on Facebook!

So at the risk of losing friends, alienating people, and of course ceasing to exist, I’m getting out of Facebook pronto. See you all on the internet. :)

I'm currently operating my complete shift from Facebook to a combination of email, Twitter and Memefest. This can only help get back to more nourishing human interactions, I find. See you here and there.

i agree with your point about better interactions. FB always felt more like a quicksand, and i'm so happy to have found memefest :)

Absolutely agree, FB is such a vicious circle. Once we get into it, it's hard to draw back. FB, from what i've seen, is merely for entertainment, but some people take it too seriously and got so addicted about it. Thats human.
