Stress from Facebook?

Omg, I am about to close my fb account. I can't stand the drama anymore. I am so sick of people using fb to attack each other and post hateful messages. It's like the perfect weapon for mean girls. I am so tired of being dragged into things. It's like everyone is now using fb to post sarcastic rude comments they have always wanted to say but would never say it to your face and you know exactly who they wanted to target and then everyone else gangs up and starts liking it. I feel like life was so much simpler before fb!

if you truly enjoy using facebook (minus other people's BS), then don't let a few drama queens spoil your fun. unfriend or block them. it's supposed to be superficial and just for laughs but unfortunately so many people take it seriously. also, make sure that it's not your only hobby - go out and do something fun with "real" friends or work on a craft project or exercise...anything! it shouldn't be your whole life, and if it's affecting you emotionally then it's time to channel that emotional energy into something that will benefit you instead.

I got rid of my fb account several months ago and don't miss it. If I want to keep in touch with family and friends I call them or visit in person. I think all this social networking has ruined socializing!

BTDT... I ended up unfriending a number of people who just refused to be civil. I refuse to let them run me off Facebook because I enjoy keeping up with family and friends there. They can play out their drama online if they choose, but I can choose to not see it! LOL
