A friend mentioned that I hadn’t posted on my blog in a while and encouraged me to write about something. My life has been chock-full lately, but not with much of anything worth mentioning. I thought about what I could write about, and a single word popped into my head: coffee.
To some people coffee is totally disgusting, while to others it’s essential for life. Me? I can take it or leave it. But I do enjoy having a cup of joe while sitting around and chatting with friends. To me it’s a social drink – something to be sipped in between chuckles and stories. It’s a carrier for relationships; a companion to time spent with friends.
After having Facebook for just over a year, I deactivated my account. Why? I don’t really know. It’s just… one day I decided to deactivate (even though I loved Facebook), so I did. Now that I don’t have facebook, I don’t miss it one bit, and I can see that it’s actually quite dangerous – not just when it comes to internet privacy, but also when it comes to user addiction.
I don’t think Facebook is a sin, though. There are lots of opportunities when it comes to social interaction, networking, and marketing! For me, though, it just wasn’t healthy.
