Oh look ... Facebook !!

9:23:00 PM

Five years ago was when i first saw it .. as a new variant to Orkut. And then a while later i hopped on board.. slowly felt my way through and made good friends with it ... a harmless, totally incontrol
friendship...
I searched for friends, old, new , long lost , just made ... and i found them too : first the friends, and then the frnds, then the franz, then the frands, and some frnzs, and the likes... and still stayed on... And caught up with school mates , office mates , ex -office mates... childhood buddies ... family ... cousins .. like minded crazos ... and all ...
And then i got hooked to the games on line .. the travel game .. then farm house.. then Mafia Wars .. then flags and then had an online puppy .. and then i let it die .....
Kept track of a lot of people and brouwsed through really amusing updates ... videos and funny quotes .. saw some friends pass through beautiful phases in life .. gave compliments ... sent gifts ... love and hugs .. pokes .. jokes ... and said whatever's on my mind .. literally ....

I wished them all well .. and now i have wished Facebook well too and said my byes to it .. after 5 long years ...
But i now find that i have become so attached to it ..that when i go online, i inadvertantly open facebook and then remind myself that i no longer am there .. i try to access it on my phone and again am reminded that dont belong anymore .. and that the addiction was much stronger than i had anticipated and way beyond control .. getting it off my list of daily to-do's is so much more difficult than i would like to admit.. but i ain't i going back .. i am finding others things to do ..
I am going to meet actual people and stay in touch with them. I am going to pick up my phone and call those i cannot meet in person.. i am going to actually play a game of badminton with new friend at a club ... i am going to remember the birthdays of my friends and call them up.... i am going to browse for videos on Youtube myself as opposed to looking at wall posts .. I see that i prefer actual socialising to social networking ..
