A Month Without Facebook


After some deliberation, I uninstalled FB from my phone in late April.  I looked at it on other devices periodically, but I also began reading actual books (and grading research papers).  I added it back yesterday because I wanted to add any graduates who wanted to stay in touch.  

What I saw today reminded me why I uninstalled: A news story about a guy with a racist sign in his yard, viral videos of backyard fights, and people complaining about others’ laziness.  The same banal horseshit.  

I challenge all readers to drop Facebook for a week or a month and just see if you truly miss it.  I sure don’t!!
