Thanks Facebook For Letting Me Know About Unfriending

I got this on my Facebook recently.  After un-friending someone they seem to make you want to feel guilty for doing so. You can un-follow, meaning you won’t see their posts but you remain friends which I have done a lot lately. However you just need to disconnect from someone for your own reasons. I think Facebook has been a hotbed and a petri dish for political and religious discussion which is not always friendly. Passions run red hot there and sometimes disconnecting is what is best for relationships and online enjoyment. It is sad when you have to end a online connection but there are plenty more to make out there.

How To Make “Homemade Ice” From Meh Food

This is a parody/satire site on Facebook and YouTube that pokes a little fun at those short cooking videos you see on social media. You will find this to be both funny and snarky in equal measure. You can also find them on Twitter.

So, it’s Friends Day on Facebook. They have a cute video with a bunch of your pictures flying around in the form of a human being. Friends Day is celebrated on the fourth so they are getting a jump on things. So in honor of their thing there is this thing above.

Facebook Break Update

keep-calm-fbI am into day 3 of my Facebook break and it seems to be going well. When you have multiple gadgets you have to log out of Facebook on each of them which can be a pain. The only thing I am connected to there is FB Messenger which I do use to PM friends who I don’t have other ways of doing so.

To tell you the truth, I am not missing it as much as I thought I might. As far as online connections WordPress.com, Twitter, Instagram and to a much lesser extent Tumblr. There are other things that will keep me busy. Facebook can be a bit of a time suck and I am realizing that now. Yes I am tempted to go back, who wouldn’t be. After this election season everyone needs a break. I think keeping out of it is a good thing for personal reasons. We shall see how long it lasts. My goal is one day at a time with a thought of going back on maybe after Thanksgiving.
