5 things I learned from deleting 70% of my Facebook friends

Image from Wikipedia
  1. The process of deleting is energizing and purifying though quite challenging and time-consuming.
    One learns more about own fears and up-to-date self.
  2. The real-life consequences are not so dramatic as potentially expected.
    After two months I have experienced no negative consequences.
  3. It feels very rewarding to get likes and comments only from people I care about.
    It got me to interact more with Facebook friends I enjoy and turned out into new offline meetings.
  4. I became more intentional about my interactions on Facebook
    Now I am more mindful of the people I want to interact online with.
  5. Life goes on
    Facebook is just an online social network, the most important interactions in our life are offline.
