I keep making it a joke

but I also don't give in to the facebook bullshit

on one hand, I want to use it for what it can be, social interaction and sharing of my personal life. Personal projects, art, discussions, jokes, and shit.

On the other if I see another inspirational quote with a minion on it I will lose my fucking mind http://i.imgur.com/zrcUXpa.gif

I quit Facebook a few months ago and never really looked back, I had my account deleted as well. I did go back to make a dummy account with none of my data on it because I never realized how many 3rd party sites used my Facebook account to login. So after quitting I still needed a Facebook account becuse their login API has spread across the Internet like the flu.

Well, writing it down and telling people does sort of hold you accountable to your own words.

It also releases endorphins and gives you the accomplished feeling as if you had actually completed the objective. It's the same with saying 'I'm going to start running' or 'I'm going to start eating healthy.' The best way is to just start doing it, don't tell people, just yourself at most.

Because if one of their "journalists" ever contacts you for a story and you talk to them, you will learn later when you read the article that the journalist didn't actually give a shit about your take on anything, and instead wound up cherry-picking your words for a quote to read like the exact fucking opposite of what you were trying to tell them, in order to fit their own story which they had already written in their head. I'm not bitter or anything though.

Edit: Sorry! I won't name the article because it would instantly dox me, and in spite of being angry at the journalist at the time, I wasn't actually harmed and wouldn't want them to be either. It was a valuable lesson learned, and leveled me up slightly.

Hmmm...

Long list o shit, but heres two:

They would not know real tech news if it bit them in the ass, and... the people who bought Wired killed it, and re-animated the corpse with SJW parasites.

So, Wired is a zombie, has been for years, and it might eat your brain.

They're a rag now that parroted the bullshit narrative the SJWs invented.

i quit social networking sites after i graduated (2012). i only used it to get answers to questions i would get called on for in class and to have people pass food to me (I get hungry when I'm bored and class bored me a lot). i got rid of it when i graduated 'cos it no longer served a purpose for me. all that social networking shit is nothing more than lazy fucking friendship. like, if i shit out 3 kids, why does everyone get to know about that? and if paula from high school breaks her stupid nose, why the fuck should I care? fuck paula. i don't even fucking know her. i wish i punched her in the face before that tree did.

I get weird looks when I tell my facebook friend, once I talk to them on phone or meet irl, that I don't actively check their profiles, cause if the want me to know something about them, they should tell me, and if I want to know, I ask them. really basic social practice, and as I said: weird looks ;) facebook is not for friends, but for wanna be stars and their audiences. little spoiled princess world we live in thanks to facebook and other overemphasizing-ly social media

I have met several people who don't know their own phone number or address. Some of them have had the number or lived in the place for 5 or 10 years. People are dumb.

That's pretty vain to think people just refresh your Facebook page when they're not around you.

Totally agree. I only started to reddit because I quit Facebook and Twitter and needed a new low effort information source to fill empty time.

Procrastination expands to fill the available time. You need to replace that time with something useful or you'll just find a new way to waste it.

This article is just like posting a picture of you and your boyfriend on top of the Eiffel Tower with some shite like "1 year today! Love you more than ever bunny!!! :))))) #paris #firstlove #anniversary" because I don't give a fucking shit.

She can do what she wants, but to write a presumptuous article and put it on the net as if people give as much of a shit as her is funny to me. Seems like she'll never change.

"I've had a very eye opening journey and I've discovered I really like the attention and approval of lots of people I barely know and I have low self esteem"

Yeh, and nobody fucking cares.

I have a friend who will go back and forth with his wife in posts about how much they love each other, how lucky there are, etc.. multiple times a week... while they are in the house together. I'm sure they enjoy the "awwww, you two are so cute" attention. I think it's great they are so happy together, but the amount of effort that goes into it seems a bit over-produced and odd.

Why not just delete the profile, delete the app, and walk away without some big announcement? The people who are really your friends are people who you actually talk to. They have ways to get in touch with you. They will text, call, email or come to your house.

Writing a bigass blog about how you're taking a break from 'social media' for 31 days is just lame.
