Around the first of the year I decided that I wasn’t going to spend as much time on Facebook. I just wasn’t finding any value in it. I didn’t kill my account but I told myself I was only going to check in once a week. And to date that has been the case. Once a week for maybe 15 minutes and then I’d sign out of my account again.
Somewhere along the line I gave Facebook my phone number. I don’t remember if this was on purpose of if it was voluntary. I suspect I had to for something. But this has turned into something bad. About once a day now, for some reason, Facebook sends me a text that reminds me of something someone has posted on Facebook. It’s as if I’ve reached some point where I don’t visit Facebook enough so they are trying to entice me with text messages. So far I haven’t given in to these messages. But what it will do is make me kill my account.
Just something to note. While I don’t find much use with Facebook I do find other uses for social media. Specifically with Twitter I find much more value out of it. Weird since the people I follow on Twitter are not people I know. More than anything I’m following “experts” in the fields that I enjoy following! Just an interesting observation.
