After a week without Facebook, I got to log back on and have 9 notifications. I was surprised I had 9 usually I don’t post or have a lot of interaction on Facebook I just use it to skim and see what people are up to. Mainly my mom who will post about what my siblings are doing since I live elsewhere with my grandparents because of school because their location is closer. I also use it to connect with my family in different states since we may not always have time to sit down and call each other. At first it was rough to break the habit but I gave my word to not use it so I didn’t. I started to enjoy not using it, I became human again I didn’t constantly need to see what the world was up to and my mom actually texted me pictures and my family elsewhere texted they understood the project and communicated to me else where.
I think we need to learn how to live without constantly being connected. We need to remember to be disconnected. Remember there was a time when we didn’t have Facebook and cell phones we actually had to log on to a computer to check our Myspaces and AIM if anyone had that besides myself. But it also should me I can do my work without a distraction. I can get through a day without social media and feel better about myself. I think I will take more breaks from social media from now and remember its okay to do things without the world knowing or knowing what the world is doing and enjoy being alone. Enjoy the moments I have to myself. I really enjoyed this experiment and I would certainly do it again.
