Goodbye Facebook Scrolling

It’s official: I quit Facebook.

I guess that’s not entirely true. I need Facebook for my business, both writing and real estate. It’s a great, affordable way to advertise, organize events, and answers inquiries from current or potential clients.

What I don’t want anymore is a personal Facebook profile. I spend way too much time scrolling through updates from my friends (some not even real friends), and grumbling over the state of the world. It’s too much, and I’m tired of it.

So I created a new account to act as admin of my business pages, and I deleted the old one. Just like that, bye bye to all those years of pointless updates and heated debates.

Time for a more productive life.

I’ll be managing my business accounts on Facebook, and I’ll be participating in literary conversations on Twitter. Those are the types of social media interactions I enjoy and will continue to enjoy for years to come.

You can follow my Facebook page here, or connect with me on Twitter here.

Don’t try to add me as a personal friend on Facebook though: my personal profile is officially unplugged.
