In today’s world of technological advancement, different websites have been launched so that the lives of people are improved through technology. Social networking sites are some of the advantages of this technological advancement. The main reason behind the popularity of these social networking sites is that these sites help people to maintain communication among them.
Facebook has been right on top of this list; people can interact with anyone, send friend request and become new friends, strengthen their bond of friendship, ignore the unwanted friends and even could communicate and develop professional and personal relationships via this great online network. However, there has been a recent and pretty strong rumor flying in the air that it is going to be shut down. So the obvious question comes in right there: what will you do if that really happens?
Stop Wasting Time
Wasting too much time on these “networking” sites like Facebook and ignoring your other jobs is not healthy for you, personally or professionally. If you live alone where you are yet to make friends then Facebook and other sites are are a great option for you to maintain contacts with them as phone calls require money to be spent. Social sites definitely have their pro’s and con’s. Nonetheless, the decision of shutting down Facebook may be a blessing in disguise for you if you are a social media addict.
We can’t really be sure whether we will see the actual end of Facebook this July, but the news is in the air and it’s getting pretty strong. If you think that you have many important messages or documents or pictures in your Facebook account then it will be wise to download them and save them on your PC.Find other ways to keep track of your friends and family, just in case your favorite social network is no longer available or turns into a paid service.
Is There an Upside to no Facebook?
You bet! You’d get more time to spend on your studies, job or friends and family (in person!). Its time you could go outside and make some friends around you. Use the new-found time to get out of the house and smile at someone. Try something else which you have always wanted to do.
Networking sites kill your privacy along with your energy. You can save both if you move your focus to some other activities rather than social sites.
Don’t let friends and family lose touch with you, Facebook or no Facebook. Be active in your real world; bring colors in your life.
Whenever you’re missing Facebook or chatting with friends, talk to them for real and fulfill your need to socialize outside of the comfort of your own home. Life without Facebook wouldn’t be so bad, would it?
