OR you became tired of using Facebook, getting threats, and annoying friends; maybe you don’t feel safe on Facebook, so finally, you decided to come over the addiction of Facebook and want to live in everyday real life rather than a virtual fake and bragging life on Facebook, that’s why many users are looking way to delete Facebook account.

Why I Deleted My Facebook Account Once & Why Should You

At one point in time, I was also a big addict to Facebook, I was so used to Facebook that it was like ‘Facebook before face wash’, getting long friend list, hundreds of like, posting everything where I go, what I eat, wasting time to edit the photos, liking, commenting, chatting to the unknown virtual friends and arguing over the Facebook posts, possibly I was faking a great life on Facebook.

But what I got in return? Likes, virtual friends but where I will invest those likes which I got by wasting 6-7 hours a day.

I was addicted to Facebook for 3 years, now let’s calculate –  6 hours a day for 3 years.  6*(365*3) = 6570 Hours which is almost 6570/24= 273 days. Let’s remove 23 days (Maybe the internet was down :P) now a rough figure is 250 days.

What ?? I wasted almost 8 months on Facebook in 3 years and got nothing in return.

This was an alarming situation for me, I should focus on my career and live a real life. Finally, with a heavy heart and fear of being alone, I decided to delete my Facebook account.

I just created a backup of all data, deleted my Facebook account permanently, and went on a vacation enjoyed it a lot, but this time, I didn’t put anything on Facebook.

What I felt Without Facebook

But after coming back, I felt disconnected from the world since I was also missing the essential news and info, so after a few days again, I created a new account. Still, this time I limited my friend list to my friends, family, and well-known persons, who liked interesting pages and mainly focused on getting profit by using Facebook.

One can’t deny the fact that Facebook is a big source of information and a powerful tool to bring changes around the world if you are using it in the right way.

Now I use Facebook as a daily magazine to stay updated with what’s going on around the world and other helpful information. I am not greedy for likes and do not argue about posts anymore.

You can also restrict your usage of Facebook to overcome this problem.

Or, if you are too serious about your time and don’t get any benefit from Facebook, then you may consider deleting your Facebook account permanently.
