Facebook Reactivated… Temporarily

I was blissfully enjoying a six month hiatus from Facebook and loving every minute of my detachment from social media. Except for one thing: I sorely missed the support and guidance from a group for mothers of special needs children, support I was not receiving from any other source.

For this reason alone I reactivated my account. I rejoined two other groups I had found useful, so just in case anyone sees my name there I feel I need to disclose my participation, as not to be a hypocrite.

I haven’t forgotten about any of the reasons why I deactivated in the first place, so I came up with a very strict list of rules to adhere to. So far so good. The list is as follows:

  1. Do not Friend anyone or accept Friend requests.
  2. Do not install the Facebook app on my phone.
  3. Do not follow anyone or get group notifications.
  4. If scrolling a group, skip any post with the word BRAG. I don’t think favorably upon those who feel need to show off their accomplishments. Additionally, scroll past names of individuals who have been known to whine, kvetch, or otherwise radiate a negative vibe in their posts.
  5. No commenting,  ‘liking’ posts, or posting statuses.

With all these rules in place, it’s kept Facebook boring enough to avoid it. Besides, life is just too busy to waste time in a timesuck like Facebook.

Thanks for reading.
