I did it! No Facebook for one month. It was quite an interesting time. Looking back I spent the most time on Facebook during the following times:
- After I wake up, just before I get ready.
- During my commute to work, i.e. when I’m on the train, bus or tube.
- After dinner.
- Just before bed.
So, it does looks like I spend quite a far bit of time on it.
During the one month detox, I read 3 books and felt left out as I couldn’t see what my FB friends were up to. After the second week, those feelings were gone. I felt like I didn’t miss much. If there’s anything important that I should know, somehow my friends will eventually tell me or I’ll ask them what’s going on.
Will I go back to spending the same amount of time on FB? I don’t think so…. but I won’t stop checking either. I still find that there’s interesting things that people post which is worth reading.
Have you try reducing the amount of time you spend on FB?
