Life After Facebook

It’s been over a week since I last logged in to Facebook.

For a former daily user, this gap stands nearly unprecedented.

Have had plenty to do in realspace.

Am reading actual books.
Working on home maintenance projects.
Getting to bed at a reasonable hour.
Talking to people in person.

How did I feel the need to ” LIKE ” all those cute pictures of cats ?
There are probably an unlimited supply of cute cat photos.
Someone else can ” LIKE ” them now.

I am stepping away from ” LIKE button compulsion “.

Resembles letting go of TV in 2004.

Simply recognized something else as more worthwhile.

Facebook might offer some unique forms of mental stimulation…

… but none come to mind right now.
