It’s amazing how many people are moving on from Facebook these days. I’m happy they are! It’s becoming more and more a big waste of time and energy. I’ve given some reasons why I moved on from Facebook myself (6 Reasons why you should quit Facebook too), but I came up with some other reasons that I wanted to share with you as well.
1. When your friends’ updates make you angry
As soon as you start getting angry about anything being said or shared on Facebook, it’s time to get the hell out. Angry about Facebook updates? There’s better things to get angry about. If you want to avoid being infected by other people’s stupidity, move on!
2. You maintain connections with people who exist only on Facebook
Facebook is an easy way of finding groups and pages filled with people who share similar interests. But if all you’re doing is maintaining ‘online friendships’, you’ve got less time to maintain ‘real life friendships’. Instead of looking for new friends online that you’ll never meet, look for new friends in real life. However, if you’re more comfortable with having online friends rather than real life friends, then you’ve probably got some social avoidance issues you might want to think about. Move on!
3. The only original or creative thoughts you have comes from Facebook updates
We all have minds capable of original thought and beautiful creations. But you need to exercise it, like any muscle, otherwise it becomes useless. Your brain is becoming useless when your creativity comes only from Facebook updates. Get out, exercise your brain, and move on!
4. Your updates have a negative effect on your relationships and friendships
Some people enjoy drama in their life. Maybe you enjoy drama, and you inspire negative reactions in people. Maybe other people enjoy bringing drama into your own life from their Facebook updates. If, because of Facebook, you get lots of negative drama with the people you’re close to in your life, it’s time to move on!
5. You regularly ‘hide’ from or ‘unfriend’ groups of people
What’s the point of actually having a Facebook account at all if you keep hiding from people or unfriending them? Move on!
What about you? Do you have any of your own things that tell you it’s time to move on from Facebook? Please share below, I’d love to include them too (via your comments)!
