What I missed out on from not being on Facebook in 2022…

On December 31 2021, I deactivated my Facebook account. I was struck by the fact that it wasn’t adding anything of value to my life. So I decided to quit it. Here’s what I missed out on from not being on Facebook this year…

  • Not as many people contacted me on my birthday. (I probably missed your birthday too. Sorry about that).
  • 20% less people viewed my blog.

That’s it.

What I gained:

  • More time being present with family (still not great at that).
  • More headspace to think creatively.
  • A sense of moral superiority when I hear people talking about Facebook. (Not proud of that one).
  • More time to work.
  • A greater sense of peace and less angst.
  • Zero pointless notifications.
  • Less craziness and outrage.
  • Zero conspiracy theories.

That’s a win.

Now, what to do with Instagram?
