Facebook Does Not Like This Website - Facebook is Angry That Facebook Detox Has Been Around For Over FOUR Years!

Facebook is angry that this
site is still around.
Facebook does not like this website.  In fact, it bothers them a great deal that there are people out there who are not buying into Mark Zuckerburg's idea of a "more connected world."  Facebook is of the belief that everyone in the world should be connected to each other.  Facebook wants every single man, woman and child to be a member of Facebook.

Yet, there are people out there who refuse to sign up.  There are people out there who are sick and tired of hearing about every small political issue over and over again.  There are people out there who believe in the virtue of privacy or who want to keep their likes and dislikes to themselves.  There are people out there who would rather spend time in the real world instead of in a fantasy world where people pretend to be something that they are not.

There are many who are tired of the cliques that exist on Facebook and who have been burnt out of the whole drama game that Facebook is legendary for!  Believe me, dear reader, if Facebook could silence this page, they would.  They would love to shut this website down.  After all, this is one of the oldest and largest websites that is against Facebook, and it is one that, after four years, is still up on the internet!  That's right, we are not going anywhere!

I believe that the message of this website is as relevant today as when it was created in March of 2012.  I believe that there are people who are still stuck in the belief that they need Facebook and who are sick of logging onto depression every single day who would LOVE to get off of the site for good.  I believe that there are some who would welcome freedom from Facebook as a HUGE breath of fresh air.

Look at your own life.  Are you a member of Facebook?  Does it really do much for you?  Are you really in close contact with all your friends on there?  Would your life really change for the worse if you got rid of it all?  Will you be missed?  Every time I went back to Facebook and left I realized that I was not missed in the slightest!  In fact, hardly anyone cares when you come and go.  And those that did care when I left were the ones who were worried that their being on Facebook was maybe not a good choice.  Yet, many refuse to let go.  Many refuse to take the plunge and delete Facebook from their lives.

All I have to say is just try it.  Deactivate and let go.  You'll want to go back.  You'll want to prove yourself and your life to your friends for a while.  But it gets old.  You will realize that every word you type on that site is a huge waste of time.  Your best post will get a few seconds of attention.  Your vacation pictures may get a quick glance.  Nobody is going to be admiring your art for more than a few moments.  Few will go through your photo albums, no matter where in the world you visited. And even if you happen to garner a few likes, your post will be forgotten in mere minutes.  Is it worth it?

No.  It is not worth it.  Not in the slightest.

Let go...

  2. First of all I would like to say thank you for this site
    I enjoy reading it and I suppose that I would have left Facebook anyway but Facebook detox has helped me a great deal in seeing that it was time to go from a place that does nothing but vomit negativity and drama
    If I ever see another political rant , duck lip gym selfie,or the ever nauseating relationship status again it will be too soon ! Of course the list goes on with all the other pointless crap that is on brag book but hey I chose to flush it

  3. I supposed that Facebook could, perhaps, maybe, might be a positive force if it was used correctly. Ok, maybe not. It is a negative force, in my opinion. Sometimes I get something out of it but I usually come away feeling either upset, sad, guilty, envious, insecure, anxious, judgmental or (more increasingly) amazed and horrified at watching how people I used to like (in real life) behave on Facebook.

    One big thing I don't like about Facebook is how it has added another layer of obligation in an otherwise crowded and busy life. How can one possibly keep up with the daily comings and goings of 400+ people? And to think some people have 1000+ "friends"? It is amazing to run into someone in real life and they expect me to know that they went to Timbuktu because they posted the photos on Facebook.

    And sadly, now instead of going on a trip to a beautiful exotic place and enjoying the experience in REAL TIME, and truly getting away from your job, family, everyday life, you post the photos each day of where you went, what you ate, where you stayed, which is essentially bragging to your poor corporate drone "friends" chained to their desk. No longer is a vacation a "getaway" but an obligation to post your photos *as* your vacation is happening. Ridiculous.

    Facebook is about EGO. And ego has gotten out of control in our culture. Ego is a big problem.

    It boggles the mind as to how many people are able to work full time, have children, live busy lives and post about it all day long on Facebook, AND reply to their "friends" posts.

    Maybe I'm just jealous that I cannot keep up but seriously. In a normal world, we do not keep up with hundreds or thousands of people all day, every day. I do NOT NEED to know what everyone else is doing, 24 hours a day. NOR do I need to let 440 people (my "friends") know what I am doing every day, nor do I need to show that many people my vacation photos. I do not need to feel extra stress and anxiety that I am not keeping up with all of my "friends".

    Yet, now, this is where one learns of deaths. No longer do people call, or email, to let you know of a bereavement. Nope. You have to find out on Facebook, so you are required to log on each day and scroll through hundreds of posts, ads, propaganda, to learn about someone's parent passing. Then you are required to post a condolence for hundreds of people to see and hope that you said the right thing.

    As a private person, I abhor what social media has done to privacy. I resent what it has done to human communication and relationships. I guess I'm old school and I once participated on Facebook (despite my reluctance as I am a private person) but now I feel it has gotten out of control. I know I'm not alone. I for one, look forward to the day that Facebook goes the way of the dodo.

  4. I'm curious how you know Facebook cares about this blog? Has anyone from Facebook ever contacted you. This is a small blog. I really can't see them investing any energy into it.
