Facebook is such a huge part of our lives today. How else would we know what is going on in the world? I use it for business, my business page advertises my listings. I get referrals from my friends who see my real estate activity through my status updates. I also keep in touch with friends all over the world, some that I haven't seen for years. I am also able to see what is going on in the lives of my teenagers. So, what would we do without it? Today is shrove Tuesday, which means that tomorrow is the start of Lent in the Christian calendar. Many people give up something for Lent. I have been toying with the idea of "giving up" Facebook. Lent is a period of 40 days, I am almost embarrassed to say that I don't think that I can do it! Does that mean I'm addicted? What could be a positive outcome? Maybe I could just limit it to once a day or would that be cheating? What if I decided to read something inspirational instead? How about spending that time calling someone and actually talking to them? Many possibilities of how that time usually spent checking Facebook could be used. What do you think? Could you give up your social media? Is it purely a business tool and so something that is a necessary evil?
