Absolutely. I was able to live without it since the year it started. Used it for 6 months and had enough. I can live without that. I think that millions of people would contribute more to humanity if they started to use their facebook time in more productive and constructive things.
I am aware of the importance of social networks and the potential they have for great things. But, I don't think people are putting social networks to good use and, except for honorable exceptions, far from learning or making the world a better place, they have turned facebook into the thing that dictates their day-to-day life and social interactions.
The fact that we have people more concerned about how many likes they get on their posts or how many followers they lost than about the pressing issues of their culture is something to be worried about.
Facebook (as well as other social network sites) have become a distraction. The kind of distraction that benefits those who work to make millions at the expense of people's blind support. The more disconnected people are from their reality and the more they distance themselves from actual physical action, the least they will contribute to the solution of their problems.
Unless the social networks are used to improve people's lives and contribute to the development of our societies and the overcoming of current problems, they can be a real waste of time.
Oh I will say for a year will be too long to do with because of both the friends and all other things I have on Facebook. But I can try to do without it in 3-6 months but I can't not do without Facebook for a whole year. That is too much.
I dont think so. I've come to love facebook so much, I can't stay a year without it.
As hard as it sounds to believe I have been not active and not using Facebook for over a Year now. While there was a time when I was very much into the world of facebook and most of my time went out there while for some of the moments I do wish that I was able to avoid it at that point of time. While as of today I am certain that I could live without Facebook. While in occasion just to be there for the sake of all the friends and family members are out there which in ways have to visit once in a while. As a matter of fact it is not absolute necessity for me to be out there.
I do like being on other social medias by the way such as twitter, youtube, Steem Blockchain where my efforts does mean something !!
Would you believe if i tell you that i have not been using facebook and twitter for more than two years??i am actually not a type of person who is really very interested n social media....
Honestly i stopped using facebook when i discovered that facebook was actually leaking my datas and also the datas of some people that i know..... i stopped using twitter because i started getting bored using the platform....after i quit facebook and twitter, i switched over to steemit and sincerely i always find steemit to be very interesting and always visit the platform everyday....
