    I deleted my Facebook bc my husband

    and I are separated and he blocked me. I'm not a crazy person - I swear - but I do admit that I'm relieved to not be looking at his activity and being jealous. Before I deactivated, one of my close friends told me he had asked her out off a drink and she didn't think he realized...

    Deleted My Friends

    I didn't delete my Facebook or Myspace accounts, I just deleted most of my friends and kept pages/profiles of authors, artists, illustrators, singers, bands, groups, games and other pages/profiles like those that I'm part of. I did this because of some stuff I recently read about...

    Completely Unnecessary

    Facebook only brought me disappointment, failing grades, and an illusion of this so called "friendship." Admit it. We have all felt the gratifying surge of joy whenever someone added us, liked our profile pic, or sent a Facebook message. I look back and realize how strange that a...

    Some people think horror movies

    or big spiders are scary, but nothing terrifies me more than couples that share a Facebook profile.

    Facebook Was Miserable.

    Every time I got on it, all I did was go down my news feed and inwardly scorn almost everyone on it. So why was it so hard to delete it? There is NO reason why it should have been that hard.

    Bye Bye "friends"

    So, maybe not everyone has the same issues that I do with comparing themselves to to others. It's not that I am necessarily jealous at the things I see, but it causes me to judge others more than I normally would and definitly more than I should. Constantly knowing...

    Mythical

    We are all looking for ways to express ourselves online; that's a fact of life now for most people. And social networking is a phenomenon like no other in terms of communications and expression. I love it, obviously. Most people do, and I happen to think that it is a beautiful...

    No, totally better, because after a terrible day at work, I realized I needed to pick out the bugs in my life, which included a co-worker who thinks she is hot chili for hot dogs :D Really, she was the first person to go, then as I scrolled down, I started unfriended people left...

    I hate this site. I really wish I never joined in the first place; now I cannot decide whether I want to permanently delete my account for good or keep my account. FB is useless to me - all I've been doing for the past 2 years is hiding everyone on my 'friends' list from my news...

    I don't need fake friends, or have my exes "check up on me" if its over, then let it go and don't have your new gf check my page either.  I want to be freed from that social construct, it was nice while it lasted, but I have to move on, and twitter is facebook with ADHD...

    Yes! I deleted, well "deactivated" my fb

    account today! All I see on there is drama, people saying **** to/about others. No matter how many friends I've removed, I still saw it. It causes nothing but problems. I feel so much better now.
