After I’d spent quite some time there, in Facebook, mindlessly scrolling, I thought to myself «What a waste of time this is! I should just get rid of it, I don’t even like it!» That was easy … took me about two clicks… GONE! It told me during a fourteen days period I could sign back in with the same email and everything would be as usual.
For a while I felt liberated.
This morning, I got up and did my usual things here … email, news … other messages. After that would normally be Facebook, but not so today. I stood up, went to the kitchen and started breakfast instead. Very good.
Then we went out to run some errands, when my husband asked me; «Could you message Kathy and tell her that *** ***?!» I grabbed my phone and it dawned on me: I couldn’t! I didn’t have her email, not her cell phone number … the only means of communication I had with her was FB message [apart from face to face time, of course].
So, in order to message her, would have to sign in as my husband. Then I started thinking about whether there were other people I had that way, and there are several. Not that I’m in close contact with them all, but I would like to be able to contact them should need be.
Next time I try to leave Facebook I better plan ahead a little better instead of that spur of the moment thing. Now I’m back there again. It lasted 24 hours.
This post is typed up in the new WordPress app for Mac. Installed it last night, and it’s nice. Honestly, there’s no big difference from typing in the browser … it all looks the same. Perhaps a little more distraction free, as I don’t see any browser tabs or some such. I have it sitting in my dock, and it shows a small, red badge when I have notifications, which is a good thing. Apart from that I don’t know what the differences might be. Preview doesn’t work very well. They’re working on an app for Windows too.
