Unsubscribed.

For the last two or three days, I've been actively unsubscribing from and hiding everyone one and everything in my news feed. Except for a few stragglers that I have to fix as they pop up, I've essentially disabled my FaceBook news feed. I wasn't sure if it could be done, and there's no mass unsubscribe option, but now my news feed sits peacefully except for some of my own posts.... it seems I can't unsubscribe from myself.

This is an extension of the Imagination Experiment for me.... I've been in a weird place ever since coming back online from my hiatus. School has kept me busy, but I was finding myself sinking back into the internet black hole.... I don't ever want to go back there. I hate losing entire evenings to data and pixels. I've stopped checking my blogs, and now I've stopped checking up on every new post on FaceBook. I don't feel bad about it either, and if you're a friend of mine and find yourself offended, don't. It's just FaceBook. I have an addiction to distraction. This is my way of gaining control, by destroying the distraction.... while still being able to be moderately involved when I want to be. Maybe it's something you want to try too.... the people most important to ya won't go anywhere, and those who do.... does it matter?

  1. Congrats! I live off the grid and actually never joined FB and probably never will. My reason is the same as your reason. Sure I still have distractions, but without FB its one battle won against procrastination.
