Catch up on the previous days of my Facebook fast.
In case you haven’t read the previous posts yet, I decided in December to have a Facebook fast from January 1 to January 15. These dates were slightly arbitrary. I prepared before I “left” Facebook in the following ways:
1. I posted a final update on December 31, 2009 to provide my — it’s crazy, I know — email address. Who uses email anymore anyway, right?
2. I sent messages to a few people to let them know I’d be off line. This fast reminded me there are quite a few people I chat with only over Facebook, so I don’t even have their email addresses.
On January 1, I was still “hearing” updates in my head. I do not want to think in “updates.” It took me a few days to detox, and I’m better now.
