After being a constant user since I first joined Facebook in 2007, I am taking a conscious break.
I have deactivated my account for the time being. It was a choice both my wife and I made, realizing the power the social network has for creating problems in our lives because in a social media world, you really don’t have privacy.
We are taking a break and it will be weird to not have posts to create or to share thoughts or updates. But I guess that’s what a blog is for, what Twitter is for. I can share my thoughts in longer form here, and give quick thoughts on life on Twitter.
I love Facebook and will not delete my account, but I think it’s a good idea to take a break from social networks for awhile and connect with your friends the old fashioned way.
