One-third of the people on Facebook check their profile first thing in the morning, even before brushing their teeth or going to the bathroom. Shocked?  Yeah, me too.  It gets worse. Study shows that fifty-seven percent of women in the 18 to 34 age range say they talk to people online more than they have face-to-face conversations. Another 21% admit to checking Facebook in the middle of the night. (Happily, this is not me.)

I am (pathetically) guilty of this. It’s almost as if Facebook has become a snooze button, easing me from slumber with amusing status updates before I have to face the real world. Oh. God.  Sooo pathetic. But at least I’m not alone. Facebook makes you feel like you’re doing something while doing nothing and, yet, in its own way, makes you too tired thereafter to actually do something.

As my Facebook friends should realize by now, I have officially deactivated my Facebook. Many would ask why, let's just say I'm going through Rehab for abusing my time with Facebook instead of maximizing the use of my pathetic 2% brain cells.  I honestly do not know how long I can last without Facebook, but I’m determined. See my Fb friends on 18th April.
