STATUS UPDATE: I deleted my Facebook! (GASP!)

Instert ditzy blonde voice here

OMG I cannot believe I totally deleted my FB!

Okay enough of that

Yep, I took a major step back into the early 2000's and I must say it feels refreshing!

Prepare yourself for a Facebook rant!

The whole competition on FB of who's life is more perfect, who has the cutest kids, the sweetest husband, blah blah blah...I couldn't handle it anymore!! No, I don't care that you are at the mall with your brother and you're going to lunch later. No, I don't care that you did 40 loads of laundry today and you're tired. If you want to talk about your day moment by moment- start a blog! Don't indindate my homepage with lame status updates!! Don't get me wrong, FB is great for staying in touch with family or seeing what long lost friends are up to, but in the end- I feel like it's turning into junior high or something. Maybe it's just me that's had this experience with FB, maybe not. Maybe that's why other media outlets such as myspace and friendster went down the tubes. They became an annoyance to most of their users. Some told me- "just don't go on it anymore." But I'm weak and if it's there- I'm gonna log in a few times a week. I ended up just rolling my eyes at people's posts the whole time.
Also, did you know when I deleted my FB page, it said it would "save" my previous info, so if I changed my mind about cancelling, I could sign up again with my same account ID and password and all my stuff would be there like I never left at all!! That's creepy! They've got all my personal info archived somewhere and there is nothing I can do about it. It's like my mama says, "There's something to be said for having your own little corner in the world", and I totally agree. Also, my blog had been seriously neglected. I guess it was time to choose between one or the other. The blog won!! (Which I can delete at anytime I want and it will be wiped off the face of the Earth. Now isn't that better?)

Okay, so that is that. Hopefully I didn't sound too bitchy and crabby. And if so, I'm sorry. Go post something on your FB status about it!!

My husband and I were just talking about this last night! I'd so love to delete mine. It's led to a lot of family squabbles and hurt feelings. Not to mention when kids get on Facebook - nothing good comes from it.

Good for you!!
