I’m done with Facebook. I’m deleting my account.
I’m tired of the ads, the constant updates, the drama, the fake news, the lack of privacy, and the general feeling that I’m wasting my time. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. In fact, a lot of my friends have already deleted their Facebook accounts. And I’m sure more will follow.
So why am I deleting my Facebook account?
Well, for starters, I’m sick of the ads. I know that Facebook makes its money by selling ads, but I’m just not interested in seeing them. I don’t care about the latest product that I can buy, and I don’t want to be bombarded with ads every time I log onto Facebook.
I’m also tired of the constant updates. I know that Facebook is constantly changing and adding new features, but I don’t need to be informed of every single change. I’m not interested in the new Timeline feature, or the new Facebook Messenger. I just want to use Facebook to keep in touch with my friends, and I don’t need all the bells and whistles.
The drama is another reason why I’m deleting my Facebook account. I’m tired of seeing posts about who’s dating who, who’s getting engaged, who’s pregnant, and who’s getting divorced. I don’t need to be a part of that. I don’t need to know every single detail of my friends’ lives. I’m happy just knowing that they’re doing well.
The fake news is also a problem. I’m tired of seeing articles that are clearly fake, or that are biased towards one political party or another. I don’t want to be a part of that. I want to get my news from sources that I trust, and I don’t want to have to wade through a bunch of garbage to find it.
And then there’s the issue of privacy. I’m tired of feeling like I have to share everything with the world. I don’t want to share my location, my interests, my photos, and my thoughts with everyone. I want to be able to control who sees what, and I don’t want to have to worry about my information being shared without my permission.
Finally, I’m just tired of feeling like I’m wasting my time. I know that Facebook can be a great way to stay in touch with friends and family, but I just don’t find it to be worth my time anymore. I’d rather spend my time doing things that I enjoy, and that are actually productive.
So that’s it. I’m done with Facebook. I’m deleting my account.
