So I’m still off Facebook. But I am feeling the loss of community a bit.
I decided to stop using Facebook in a personal capacity a couple of weeks ago. I have various pages on there that I didn’t want to lose access to, so instead of deleting my account, I just unfriended everyone except my wife (I want to see what she posts about me!).
I haven’t missed it all that much, but have noticed a few things:
- I still log in at least once a day, even though I know there will be nothing new in my news feed
- I’ve started using Twitter as a substitute, and have started to understand it better as a result
- I only really missed it once, when I wanted to post a video I made with my granddaughter (see below) and realized that I didn’t really have anywhere comparable to Facebook to do that
Twitter is interesting, but very different to Facebook. I still don’t really understand it 🙂
Here’s that video too:
