Is there any point to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram? If I closed all of them, would anyone notice?
It is Thursday night, and the big project is due the next day. You are scrambling to finish it up well enough that you don’t fail and/or get fired. All the while, you wonder how it could have gotten so bad. How did a project that had three weeks to be completed fall on the late outs of the day before.
I know how. You wasted way too much time elsewhere. I know because I have been in that spot.
Here are my Top 5 Productivity Killers.
We’re down to this. Facebook links have been deleted, apps uninstalled, and homepages reset to not go to Facebook.
But should I just deactivate the account entirely, or keep it?
I can’t say that I have not seen this happening for a while. My presence on Facebook has been pretty much shut down before today. Just about everything I have on their is only visible to me. I also turned off the search option, so my account is not searchable. If anything, my Facebook friends list has gone down, especially since I have not added anyone in months.
The latest has been my fight with Facebook over how I display my homepage. I prefer to read the most recent items first. Facebook, however, kept changing the list to top stories. I would set it to most recent, and Facebook would change it back.
It ended up being the last straw. I have not deactivated my account… yet. But I have deleted links and apps. At least most of them. It seems I cannot delete the Facebook app off my Android phone.
I might someday return to Facebook, though, I think that at this point, if I return, it will be to finally deactivate my account.

Can someone please explain to me the purpose of the Facebook poke?
A few weeks ago, I posted a list of the bonuses in the Facebook game Marvel: Avengers Alliance. Since then, I have found a few new ones. This list is nowhere near complete, so if you stumbled across one, let me know and I’ll throw it on the list.
