First, let me apologize to all the Facebook fans and addicts out there. What am I apologizing for? Well, simply for what you are about to read. I have been tempted to re-activate my Facebook account a few times, after canceling my account four months ago. Some friends have asked me to go back. The reason for my discontinuation of this ridiculous “social” website was the waste of time. Up to this point, when I let people know I don’t have a facebook account anymore, they act surprised, because they simply did not know. And this actually proves my point. My Facebook “friends” don’t even notice when I cancel this useless social website account, which tells me they have not really paid attention to my absence. People “friend” so many people, that they lose track of who comes or goes. I became addicted to Facebook when I started about two years ago. But as months passed, I found myself going there to find useless information about people I really did not care about. I started feeling like I would visit to just get out with the same feeling of emptiness. I did find some old friends, and learned a lot about their current lives, but when I really started analyzing this whole “facebook friends” deal, thinking outside the box, I realized that it really is a superficial, self-serving, and lazy way of “socializing with friends”. It is truly a means to serve ourselves, not about communicating and bonding with people in a genuine relationship. This is my position: if people really want to know about me, they need to call me. If they really want to see how I am doing, they need to visit me. If I want to know about my friends, I will call or visit them also. I will make the effort to go out in the community, physically, and commute. At least send them a letter or text, with the intention of meeting. I am not a social person by nature, but if I were, I would make the attempt. As a matter of fact, I take it back. I don’t apologize for what I am writing, because I don’t really think I am offending anyone, but simply stating my honest opinion about the detrimental website called Facebook. You don’t have to “Like” this post or “friend” me. But you are more than welcome to comment. 🙂 Goodbye, my friend.
