FB free for some years now and I don't regret it one bit. I still have a social life, I still talk to my friends and family, despite living abroad. I may not see what that long lost collage pal is up to but if we meet we have something to talk about. It just felt FB was an evil tamagotchi sucking up time just to make me feel bad.
FB and co are just using you and getting rich by selling you down the river, just give these jokers the finger and quit.
Seriously, aren't folk finding the supposed benefits are failing in the face of this cesspits behavior and content?
I've managed to stay FB clean for 8 yrs now, any FOMO has completely gone, I manage a social life and I stay in touch with people I care about. Maybe I contact that long lost friend slightly less than I used to but when we catch up there is stuff to talk about.
May be commit to trying a month and see how you feel, from then on it gets so much easier :)
So the government has to deal with this by applying rules demanding full oversight of the internet in the UK and the parents do nothing. How about those with children taking responsibility? Why not have a system that stops anyone under age limit from logging on with out ID? If you have a 10 year old, you fix it but keep me out of it.
