recycle binBefore, it is Friendster. Now, it is Facebook that I am throwing into the bin.  Three weeks ago, I decided to quit Facebook, specifically Facebook Applications.  Why?

  1. I suffered from insomnia.  Because of facebook applications such as Farmville, and Cafe World, I suffered from sleep disorder and worst, I experienced a lot of sleepless nights.
  2. I cannot concentrate in my work and studies.  There are times that my mind is filled with the words-harvest, plow, plant, cook and so on.
  3. I felt facebook is eating up a lot of my precious time.  I know that I can do more important things and be more productive by avoiding facebook.
  4. I am wasting electricity.  Playing facebook applications sometimes need a lot of computing time and resources.
  5. I am wasting my energy.  I feel sleepy during the times that I need to be awake.
  6. I am starting to be addicted to facebook applications.  I do not want to be addicted.
  7. I am getting physically horrible.  My eyebag is getting bigger due to lack of sleep.  I am having a headache every now and then.  My eyes are getting blurred.
  8. I am starting to be disorganized.  I cannot cope up with all of my schedules because I am losing my priorities.
  9. I am starting to be emotionally and psychologically carried away by these facebook applications.
  10. I want to quit. Period!  Goodbye Facebook!

    Good decision. Social networking sites are only good for keeping in contact with friends…. but you also have a phone and email for that. Everything else is basically for entertainment. Congrats!

    First, I find it incredible when you mention saving energy or electricity. You could have saved both by redacting the entire thing to the one reason you are quitting:

    You have no will power to avoid the games and as such you spend too much time playing them.
