    I was on Facebook for about a month in 2014. I have not been on the site going on four years and I do not miss it at all. It is basically a website for narcisstic people who make themselves out to be more important than they really are.

    Never started Facebook so…..I don't know what I'm missing yeah? Actually I just use my husband's account if I need to stalk people. That's all it's good for anyway.

    If truly people want to disconnect, then start with all social media including Youtube.

    I feel that people who have Facebook is because they have no life and always worrying about others and seeing how many likes they get and mostly I think people post stuff on it for attention! I hate all social media. I'm 2 years free and don't ever plan on going back. Wish we could turn back time when everyone just actually talked to each other in person and no smart phones at dinner tables.

    People ping you but don't want anything. Five percent of your friends post 95% of the content. Invitations to games. Grotesque misuse of user information to funnel targeted ads to you. (They should be paying me some of that.) I just can't mess with Facebook.

    i've stopped using FB for half a month now and i feel better and complete than ever!!! I'd add that everyone should try this challenge to stay away from FB for a month or if possible more, and i am sure they'll get to know more about their friends than on the facebook.

    CHEERS!!

    I closed my Facebook account 'permanently' 5 years ago… I still get referrals… friend requests…. your facebook shadow profile [the one they keep giving to the government..]. is twice the size of the content you put into it.. Facebook do credentials, photo, relationship modeling, word associations… they know more about you and your life than you do.

    Personally, I’ve had more time to explore other social media communities and actually focus on what I like doing without the urge, need or fear to impress the friends I have on Facebook. Facebook has this weird thing where you find yourself somewhat trying to impress or even try to keep up with your friends list in terms of not missing out on things and even showcasing the “ideal” life you’re living for a like button and a comment. Gotta say, it’s refreshing to do what you like without that weird part of your brain telling you to share whatever for the sake of confirmation and attention 🤔

    You have less drama with your significant other or friend or family members. Also makes life harder for stalkers/social engineers/hackers to find you. 🤓 Also you’re not weird man.

    I just have mine on the desktop just to keep in contact with people. I only have messenger on my phone and don’t use the app. I keep my feed clear as I have no interest in sharing my life story on the internet.

    Think I've been deactivated since around May. Love being able to come up with my own thoughts and ideas. Would recommend.
