Have you had a nagging feeling that Facebook has overtaken your life?
Here are some things you can do today-
1. Take the Facebook APP off of your phone.
If you get really desperate for a fix, you can sign in using your phone's Internet browser.
BE SURE TO SIGN OUT OF YOUR ACCOUNT WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED SCROLLING AND CLICKING.
2. Go on a Facebook diet.
If you are unfamiliar with how to go on a diet, you are, a) not a human, and b) have never been on Facebook.
Create diet goals and reach them.
Here are some app suggestions-
There is even an app that lets you grow trees on your phone by staying off of it! It's called Forest.
4. Plan a sabbatical.
If any of the above are too scary, plan a teeny-tiny sabbatical. Just a day. Just a week.
Announce your intentions to someone else and ask then to hold you accountable. You can even make the announcement on Facebook if you really need to!
Just an experiment to see how it makes you feel, right?
You could even make a list of all the things you've done while you weren't on Facebook!
See how it feels? Just try it?
Look, we need to talk. This isn’t easy to say since we’ve been together so long, but we need to break up. We’d love to say “It’s not you, it’s us” but it’s totally you. Not to be rude, but you aren’t the smart, funny social network we fell in love with several years back. You’ve changed. A lot.
When we first met, you made us feel special. We’d tell you a super funny joke about Sriracha and you’d tell all our friends and then everyone would laugh together.
Now we get ads for Siracha brands, friend suggestions from fellow Siracha lovers articles about how Siracha can either kill you or make you more attractive, quizzes about the origins of Siracha, Siracha contests and app requests from companies that make sauce or gravy of any kind, instead of just liking us for who we are.
That’s hella messed up.
