Can you live without Facebook???

Social Networking – now there’s two words which have so much power these days!  When I first started off in the world of computers all those years ago, social media didn’t exist…  well, not unless you class bulletin board chatrooms (bear in mind there was no broadband back then!) as social media?  I suppose you could. 

Then, I guess the next big social media site was Friends Re-United.  Lets face it… the site was crap!  Then, rolling forward to the noughties, all hail the legends of Social Network & Media, Facebook & Twitter to name but a few!

I login to both sites on a daily basis….  multiple times.  Twitter more than Facebook, but I always have to pop on both just for a bit, to see what’s happening.  🙂

Is this the norm these days???   There are 350 million people using Facebook today….  many people joining the site on a daily basis.  There are also many more leaving the site too.  Some feel they are being spied on with Facebook’s latest change in their privacy controls.  Will they ever stop playing about with it and just leave it alone!?  I very much doubt it.

Anyway… the question is this.  ‘Can you live without Facebook for one month?’    Well, could you?

I’ve challenged a friend to see how we get on.  We’re de-activating our Facebook accounts at 12:00pm on January the 1st 2010 until 12:00pm on February the 1st 2010, that’s if we decide to re-activate the accounts again!  🙂

You can find out more about how we get on and how many people join in by clicking here 

Could you last the full month??  What will you do instead of logging into Facebook?  Who knows!! 

Let the challenge commence!
