Sometimes you reach an impasse and you realize it’s time to make a decision, and in my case that decision involves social media. Specifically, and as unthinkable as this might sound in today’s world, my decision involves leaving Facebook.

Not that Facebook isn’t fun, it is, and not that I don’t enjoy following all the conversational threads posted by my erudite and literate friends, I do, but underneath the fun I feel a thirst for something more, something real in the physical sense; something that goes beyond putting a virtual pen to a virtual wall, and you can only go so long ignoring that desire and allowing yourself to continue to bend to the lure of Facebook.

I don’t know about you, but for me the lure of Facebook has been strong and it took me a while to finally make the decision, but last Friday I deactivated my account thereby scattering all my friends – old and new – to the far reaches of however many corners the social media world holds.

I’ve blogged about this before and this isn’t the first time I’ve taken a Facebreak. We’ll see if it’s the first time I don’t go back.

    I have facebook but I am an infrequent user. I have had other sites for which I have developed more of a dependence and ultimately had to drop (not easy). I’ve limited my social media to mainly WP (hosting the prompts and writing poetry is very meaningful to me) and actually it has been a very good choice. Still I know how scary it can be. Goodluck to you =)
