I'm giving up an addiction

The idea of forever is kind of ridiculous.  Especially when you are talking about Facebook, and an addiction. We hope it won't be here forever, and at one time or the other we say we won't participate anymore.

It's come that time for me, especially with my personal account.  

I try to convince myself that I'm not addicted to Facebook.  You know, I only use it when I have time, or when there's a break in the action.  Lunch time, break time, off time, that time, this time, sometime can even be all the time.  You log off for the last time at night, brush your teeth, and all the things we do in our nightly routine before we shut off the lights for the very last time.

Then we log in one more time.  And we continue to convince ourselves we aren't addicted.

I'm just waiting for that new, exciting social networking THING to come along just so I can completely forget Facebook, but then I have to remind myself I'm in the advertising business,  and I need to continue to promote different things from my company page, which I plan on doing.  

Recently I returned from the Seattle Interactive Conference where social networking was at the forefront in nearly every session for two long days.  

We just can't get away from it.


Welcome to Facebook!  The place where people add you as a friend but don't acknowledge you when they walk by you, or see you at a party.  Where relationships and marriages are perfect.  People think your status is for them when truly it isn't.  Where you post things straight from the heart but yet some people will take it the wrong way.  Where people have the most amazing dogs in the world, like me.

And how about this quote:   "They changed the name to Facebook because stalk my ex seemed a little too creepy".

The true Facebook followers will probably take all of this wrong but for some reason I'm not sure I care anymore.  I want to make it clear that I'm as guilty as anyone, but if people on Facebook could post images and nothing else for just one week, it just might be more enjoyable, and worth staying.

But we all know that won't happen.

Thanks for being my friend on Facebook.
