I came to the harsh realization this week that I'm addicted to Facebook. It's bad, and I need to change my habits. I seriously considered canceling my account, but it's such a great way to stay connected with people I care about. Especially people in my family (because my siblings and mom rarely, if ever, read my blog) it's how I keep them updated about Cambria, and how I learn what's going on in their lives (aside from calling, of course).
I need to figure out a way to not spend so much time on it. I thought about deleting all of my friends except for my close friends and family. But then I run the risk of having to deny friendships of a lot of people, and it's always just a bit awkward.
Apparently you can manage who can post in your news feed. But that's a long and tedious process.
These are my options of how to decrease my time on Facebook. I can't limit myself to once a day, I have tried that and it doesn't work. I can't say that I can't check it before a certain time, because that doesn't last. Jonathan suggested only allowing myself to get on every other day. That may work.
I have been just avoiding it all together this week and I must say I haven't missed it. Except I'm starting to feel a few withdrawals today... Probably because my new sister in law text me and told me she sent me the link to her wedding pictures... Oh man! I want to see those so bad! I'm going to hold out for the rest of the week! I will do it!
Does anyone have any other brilliant suggestions on how to decrease facebook time? What works for you? I'm really needing some help here.
