    Facebook makes me sad

    and I always end up posting my feelings to much. At least here I'm anonymous.

    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...

    I deleted a couple times

    since I joined in 2009, but always returned within a few days.. This time I permanently deleted it, and it feels great. For two months now I've been Facebook free, no negativity, if I want to know what my friends and family are doing I call them like the good ole days. At 23...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

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