Why I Left Facebook

 


Hi there! It's been a while.. let's catch up!.... So you see the title of my post.. I'm off... Yeah I know, I'm off my rocker a bit but that's not what this post is about...

I'm officially off Facebook. I have deleted the app off my phone and my tablet. It is time to break the addiction and the chains of social media slavery...

What lead to my decision? It's not something knew, I've been thinking about it for a while. It's not brought any good into my life and in fact it's only brought things down for me. That in itself should be enough but as with all addictions sometime you just have to hit rock bottom.

Over this past weekend I received two warnings (laughs) from Fakebook about a few posts I put up. Just let me say this upfront. I am not a covid virus denier (I had it in 2020 and yes it was bad and yes I thought I was going to die from it. It is a real virus (bio-weapon and it does kill people) but I am completely and 100% against this poison they are calling a vaccine. I am also against ANYTHING that tries to take away our freedoms of any kind.. 

Since getting these (coughs) warnings, every time I would comment on someone's post if it had anything to do with the shitty shape our country is in, the poison jab, the virus itself, as I was typing my screen would brighten real quick as if someone was taking a screen shot. This was happening both on my phone and my tablet and only on Fakebook.

Now you can call me paranoid, a tin foil hate wearer etc. etc. but just remember this. Us tinfoil hat wearers are being proved right everyday now. And as for paranoia, go take a look at the videos of what's happening in Australia and then decide of I am paranoid. 

So tonight I have deleted both Fakebook and it's Messenger app. Next to go will be Instagram because they are now owned by Fakebook and then Twitter. Funny, as I was writing this last sentence about Instagram being owned Fakebook the thought popped into my head. So are you owned if you continue to use these services if that's what you want to call them. I call them propaganda machines now. 

I've really been trying to take stock of my time and my life in the last two months and you know what? I don't NEED to be connected on social media. I don't NEED social media at all in fact. It's nothing but a drain emotionally, mentally and physically, a propaganda machine, a brainwashing machine and nothing good comes from it.

One of my biggest reasons and I am not ashamed to say it is, I am addicted to Social Media as are many millions of other people and that is their end goal these creators of social media and when you are addicted to something then you are enslaved by it and the things you really enjoy or need to do for yourself get pushed to the side because you need your fix. I know many of you are shaking your head in agreement with me.

Having said all this I want to tell you that I will be spending the majority of my time here on my blog because I do, like most people like to share things with the world and I do like to write. As for the direction of my blog, I will be expressing my opinions on many, many things. Some people will agree others it will make angry and they will walk away and that's fine with me. I have always considered my blog to be my little space on the internet. All I ask is that if you do not agree please be respectful as you wish to be respected and if you can't then don't say anything at all and unfollow me. Look at it this way, if you walked into a friends home would you take a dump in their living room just because you felt like it? No? Then don't do it here either because this is my little virtual home. 

Now that all of that is out of the way. I will be back soon with some life updates for you if you are interested. I also want to see if there is an app I can download on my phone and tablet so I can keep up with all of your posts and blogs as well. I am hoping Bloglovin has an app I can download. 

I hope everyone is healthy and well and I will talk to you soon...
