Want some peace? Turn off your facebook notifications.
I got so sick of the “groups” that I turned most of them off. Sure, I’m still a member but getting the beeps and buzzes every time someone posted was getting annoying.
No, I told myself, I didn’t really have to go running to every cause out there and give every last bit of energy I had left. I could save some of my energy to stay alive.
Of course, I turned off all electronics for lengthy periods, only to be bombarded again and again with multiple notifications from the “groups” once I turned them back on. One person arguing one thing, another person making another point I felt I could not ignore.
It was turning into one big hate machine. I didn’t feel okay with it. Sure, we’re all in this together, but why all this backbiting? I always suspected that Facebook turned mature adults into a bunch of bullying junior high school kids. Now, I really believe it. I think it’s sad.
