So, yesterday I dropped Facebook, tried Twitter out for a few hours, and then decided to drop that as well. As of now, I do not have any major social networking service to my name.
While I certainly feel that social networking is a good thing if used in moderation, I often found that it took up a considerable amount of time — time that would be better spent studying and actually doing work. It also gives me an opportunity to get outside and exercise, which is something I can always use to avoid the infamous “freshman fifteen.”
I am not saying this decision is final, and thankfully Facebook lets users come back to their site and use their old profile, but I will see how life is without Facebook and other social networks for a while.
