Do You Need Facebook?
I've been thinking about quitting Facebook for a few weeks now.
I started about 4 weeks ago spending much less time scrolling through posts and more time here answering questions, leaving comments and generally learning more about online marketing. It has had a very positive experience. I would say I've written another article a week by not wasting time on Facebook.
That's all very positive but one thing I've missed is the creative side to my account.. I make natural soaps and am in a couple of groups which I find interesting. I'm wondering if I can get the same sort of creative 'fix'going on Pinterest instead..
I have been finding Facebook to be like a young teenager with no filter, saying what you like, to whom you like, when you like and how you like and to hell with the consequences or even a single thought to the other person that you are attacking. It's getting me down. My own nephew thought it ok to make his thoughts known in no uncertain terms on one of my posts.. I'm in two minds right now whether to just ignore it, he's 21 so should know better, or to cross him off my Christmas list!! I did comment that I was not going to stoop to his level and he need to remember who exactly he's talking to.
What benefit is Facebook to my business? I have a business account and post my articles there. Maybe I just go with that and stagnate my personal account.. can you have a business account without a personal one? That would be preferable I think.
My kids don't really use Facebook personally, except my older son, but he always tells me what's going on anyway so I don't need it for him. I do have friends on there that I don't see but keep in touch through it.... I wonder if there's another platform that would be better..
What are your thoughts? Does life go on without Facebook?
