A little over a month ago, I quit Facebook and I haven't looked back since. The reason for my departure after four long years on the site was, to put it bluntly, because I was over it. Sure, I miss seeing photos of my friends' children, and there is a select group of people I don't correspond with otherwise and miss, but when it came down to it -- I was just bored with it. I saw the same status updates from the same people over and over, and rarely did I log on and see something, and think: "Wow! That's awesome!"
I've been told by some of my friends that I'm a party-pooper and I should just come back because it's fun, but no. For now I'm sticking to my guns and laying off Facebook. And it turns out I'm not the only one. A new study found that lots of people are quitting Facebook, or, at the very least, have taken a break at some point. Their reason being the same as mine: Facebook is one, big yawn-fest.
