It now been over two weeks since I deleted my Facebook account and frankly the last two weeks have been a lot more hassle free and my mood has generally been better which has been very noticeable to those around me.
What it has shown me due to it’s nature Facebook is having an unconscious effect on peoples and my own mood in a very negative way which in itself is very surprising. I cannot really put a finger on why other than it’s very nature brings out the darker side of people’s nature due to the very nature way Facebook is set up.
I have think I have said this before Facebook now fails to do it’s basic task of being a Social Network if anything by it’s very nature and the way people now perceive it as a place for gossip and for trivial matters has change it’s very nature for the worse. In so much people do not go there to socialise any more but to catch up with gossip and such trivial matters with basic socializing and keeping up with old friends as a very poor second.
When I was on Facebook the last thing I could do was easily keep up with my old friends and have private chats with them as the whole nature of Facebook discouraged this. I could not even keep up with their lives on Facebook itself as it got lost in the dross Facebook fills it’s news feeds with without doing some unnecessary work.
Basically in the end Facebook stopped being useful as far as I am concerned made worse I used the excuse that I was there to keep in contact with friends to stay there but I simply could not easily!
The biggest irony of all these so called friends did not comment elsewhere that I left Facebook or even missed me once again just showed to myself that Facebook was failing to do what it claims that is being a social network!
