My Facebook account's been deactivated for months now, and I feel my social skills and general well-being have benefitted as a result. There are so many problems with Facebook and its effects on our generation, but instead of detailing them, I will relay my friend's experience with reactivating his account recently. He too was sick of it, but decided to relent and give it one last shot. Upon reactivating, the first thing he saw was a girl posting on a guy named Jay's (who, might I add, she rarely if ever talked to in real life) wall. The post read "jaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy xx", and nothing more. He deactivated it again instantly and has not used it since. Mine had already been deactivated and I was considering going back on it, but after hearing that story and being reminded of so many similar posts and people using it to create an idealised persona, posting and saying things they never would in real life, I too have not used it since. Does anyone else not have a Facebook and has no intention of getting one/reactivating their account? Why?
