The One Month Mark Without #Facebook


One month ago I went on a Facebook fast for personal reasons. It’s been a great experience where I have cleared my head and focused on other areas of expression like my blog. I remain connected on Twitter and Instagram. I don’t regret leaving one bit, but I know a return is in sight sometime in the future. So far so good though and I’ll go back when I am good and ready. Until then, steady on as they say.

  1. I’ve been intrigued and pleased when reading about your FB fast. I made a 90% exit over 2 years ago. A heart condition put me in the hospital and a posted photo of my room on discharge was noted to have no trigger from friends who seemed to be relying much on communicating via FB. I continued linking my WordPress post to it – then at a party a friend said ” Oh, you have a blog?”. () I’ve had a blog site for 7 years.

    Your fast and it’s results makes me feel reassured about the position I’ve taken on the matter!

      1. You’re right. I guess my frustration is that I was experiencing some friends that have chosen FB as largely the only way they communicate or attempt to stay connected.
        And I have to admit , my circle is small, so my perspective is altered some.


  2. Hey nice to see that many people this year took the challenge of quitting facebook. I was also influenced to do so. The process was liberating. I got so much time for my other things. I built a habit that has given me 10 times more return and that is reading. I have stopped using Facebook since, I have an account but I rarely go through it maybe once a week.

    Do check out my blog. There are some good traveling content which you might like. Do follow if it interests you. Thanks 🙂
