It’s official. I have made it a whole week with out Facebook.. sort of. Last Thursday, I decided to start my week of torture of not being able to use Facebook. This assignment was very difficult for me to complete. I go on Facebook every chance I get. Most of the time, I go on Facebook unknowingly, it’s almost a habit.
Every morning when I wake up the first thing I do is grab my phone and check Facebook. That seems crazy, right? This past week every morning when I woke up was difficult for me because I wanted to go on Facebook. I would grab my phone and get to the app button and realize I can’t go on Facebook. Also, getting several notifications from people on Facebook was the biggest tease. After class on Tuesday, I realized by getting those notifications it is actually being on Facebook. It’s crazy how you are always connected to social networks.
This assignment has made me realize how attached I am to Facebook. I felt was literally going insane. This assignment was very hard for me. I’m going to confess I did go on Facebook a few times. I actually had to go on a few times just ease my mind. Another reason I had to go on was because my cousins had their baby and I NEEDED to see pictures of their baby. This made me realize how I use Facebook to communicate with people. If I didn’t have Facebook, I would loose touch with a lot of people that I talk to regularly on Facebook. I talk to a lot of my friends on Facebook on a regular basis. I’m in college, all my friends are at other colleges across the country.
With in mind that I am going to be a teacher one day and a student at a University, I make my Facebook very private. I am unsearchable. Also, I don’t put anything on Facebook that I wouldn’t want everybody to see. Your Facebook is a representation of yourself, you should only put on there what you want everyone to see.
Although this assignment taught me a lot, I will never go a week without Facebook ever again!
