A few days back i sent a note to my facebook friends.
Hi friends,
I just wanted to drop a note to all my friends on face book that I have deactivated my facebook account. In-case you wonder where I have disappeared and need to get in touch with me or invite me for a party:). I am still available on email or on my hand phone or would love the friendly tap on my back from office mates and friends. At a risk of sounding like an old uncle I just found that I was spending way too much time and gray matter on something very trivial and childish. And sometimes I felt guilty not responding to actions of close friends as there were so many. I rather spend that amount of time in real interaction with people and giving good friends a real hug, a real poke or well deserved round of drinks. In this world of technology sometimes we forget that there is nothing that replaces real personal interaction. I really don’t want to be reduced to a level where I feel lazy to wish my close friends ‘happy birthday’ the old traditional way by calling or meeting them. So for now its going be goodbye ‘facebook’ which gets replaced with more personal chats and time with my friends. Cheers …’did anyone say they wanted a real round of drinks with me? Call me’


I just found some similar point of view on this from others on the net

“I may be lonely but at-least i am real”
“Facebook labelled a $5b waste of time”
“Facebook” a waste of time – get used to it”
“Facebook a waste of time”
