Thank you for your feedback. It is greatly appreciated!
To answer your questions, I still do not have a personal account on Facebook. I only manage my companies FB page because of the nature of my job as a social communications manager (ironically to my opinions lol)
You will find that it is quite difficult to detach yourself from social sites because it has so dramatically become part of our lives and daily routines. So when you do close your eyes and make the jump, you could very well feel withdrawn from the world, and I am sure that according some study from some institution it could be found that it could make you feel withdrawals, even depression and loneliness.
When you get to that point, you will realize just how dependent you are on being in the "buzz", I found it personally to be rather pathetic to have such a neediness control you.
Anyways, there are many benefits and also many benefits for being connected. I find that I am no longer driven by a need to see what is going on in peoples lives, I like to refer to FB as "
It eliminates the unnecessary. Removes the platform for vulnerable vents and helps me focus on the people that matter.
My advice to you is, try it out even if its just to discover the social dependence we have on social media. It may help you feel less cluttered and less powerless over technology. Another way to force yourself to do so is to switch phones for a week to one of those old Nokia 3310's and let me know how that goes :)
