Reasons I deactivated my Facebook

To focus on the present moment. I found myself diving into the world of social media when I could’ve been participating in real interactions. I kept going to check my Facebook while I was with friends or in class, and realized how often it consumed me.

To gain full awareness of my obvious dependency on it, and realize what a huge role it came to play in my life.

To escape from the immense stupidity and absurdity that took place on it. Ignorant and meaningless posts, blind spreading of false information. It has such a negative effect on my view of humanity, and we all need to free ourselves from it. I reactivated my facebook today, and was bombarded with mind-numbing videos and posts. Maybe if we all had a wordpress our culture wouldn’t be heading for the fucking landfill.
