I was reading an article yesterday that said 1 in 4 Americans use Facebook, and the average amount of time they are using Facebook is 6 hours per week. Six hours per week? Holy crap! That seems like a lot until you figure that's less than an hour a day! If you're on Facebook six hours a week, you're spending about two weeks a year "liking" things, and ROFL and LOLing. And I'm on there more than that.
So then I get thinking about what I'm getting out of Facebook. Sure, you can keep up with your friends. I get into some interesting and lively conversations. I'm sometimes very amused with the exchanges I get into. I've got a lot of very quick witted friends, and they put me to the test often. I'll have to admit, it's great fun.
So I'm going to give it up for a while. Maybe I'll finally find a direction for this blog. It's a real mess. I haven't really found my blog niche. But I think I know where I'm going now, so we'll see what happens with that. Maybe I'll finally get serious about the next book project. Do some reading. There's a lot I could do with that time.
Imagine what you could do with an extra two weeks a year. Think about it. What are you really getting out of Facebook?
