Dear Me, dear readers, dear so called Facebook "friends",
Over the past 17 hours since I deactivated my Facebook account, I have had dozens of emails and few text messages asking me why I left the service so abruptly specially at my birthday night. To most of those inquiries, I say that I am suffering from Facebook fatigue.
I've been spending "or say wasting" a good number of hours every week on this social networking site.
I’ll agree that part of this is my fault for having too many contacts on the site, and especially for having too many contacts that aren’t savvy enough to realize that most of these silly applications are a huge waste of my time. That being said, I don’t have the time to deal with requests I don’t care about from people I barely speak to anymore. And when I’m spending more time declining requests than I am doing more productive things on the site, then you know I’m in over my head. It’s like email all over again.
Return on investment is a concept I learnt back in college days, it is incredibly important in all aspects of life I should say, so why not in social networking applications? And why the hell would I accept the tens of friendship requests from random people I barely know.
Yes, I love Mafia movies, but no I don’t want to be part of them. Yes, I like hot chocolates, but no I don’t want a virtual one. Yes, I’d love to cook and have my own restaurant/cafe - but not online. I know I have a big brain, so what's the deal?
I suck in Geography so why humiliating myself in public? :p
Those who I care about and who are really in my life will remain the same, as for the rest, am sorry...facebook is no more my cup of tea
Thanks & Regards,
