- I have much more spare time. If you’ve ever gotten sucked into the Facebook vortex of clicking through someone’s photos, reading endless event invitations, or tagging photos of your friends – you know what I’m talking about.
- I don’t have to worry about ‘friends of a friend of a friend’ posting weird stuff on my wall. I had enough ‘surprise’ comments or photo tags that I wasn’t expecting everyone on my friend list to see (especially while hunting for jobs… not the best impression for future employers).
- It’s nice to not rely on Facebook as a way of communication. My real friends are the ones who have my phone number, call me on a regular basis to hang out, text message me when something awesome is happening (or just to drop a friendly ‘hello’), or know where I live and swing by. No more private messages for this ‘gal.
- People who don’t like me or don't know me well are no longer able to ‘spy’ on me. I felt like a few individuals (let’s call them ‘haters’) who don’t like me for whatever reason were using my personal Facebook to keep dibbs on me. Why would I want to feed in to their repulsion towards me?
In the age of smart phones, laptops, and iPads – technology is constantly surrounding us. I hope that people don’t forget to make time for themselves and instead get caught up in what everyone else is doing.
Little Miss Lovely on FB.
I’ve also created a mobile scan code for Little Miss Lovely. It had a lot to do with me finding it more convenient to scan things rather than to type “Little Miss Lovely Vintage” in the Google toolbar of my iphone than anything else. Just scan this code with the smartphone app, ScanLife (it’s free), and it will immediately bring up the mobile version of this little blog.
All extremely valid points, I've considered it a million times….
I love this. i did the same thing a couple months ago and feel like it was one of the best decisions. I have to use facebook for my company all the time, but I stay off the personal stuff and love it. Love all your points!
Good for you girl!! I totally agree with all your reasons..and it must be "official" if it has been three weeks! Soo time consuming..and most of the time its random nonsense..like "I went to the grocery store."…or "my baby pooped." haha!XO Lindsay @ Delighted Momma
