I dabbled in leaving Facebook a couple times throughout high school, and now as I finish my freshman year with college I have been off Facebook since February. Not only was clicking around on Facebook time consuming but it wasn't productive and only when I had a new picture up or someone special wrote on my wall did I really feel GOOD about being on Facebook. The struggle to appear popular to my friends from home, to keep up with the constant updates, and to make myself attractive via a website was overwhelming and worthless. I clicked out for the last time and felt as though I could understand the world more clearly with the barrage of facades from my hundreds of "friends" gone. Facebook is detrimental to people precariously on the edge of well-liked and forgotten, and for those whose hearts and self-concepts are still resonant of a time when virtually one-upping and judging picture/text profiles was never a worry or imperative. Thank goodness I'm out, I have a feeling the end is near.
