So I’ve done it. I’ve initiated the deletion of my Facebook account (they don’t actually delete it for thirty (30) days in hopes you’ll change your mind). Apparently a rather crass (but popular) cartoon show I never watched had a rather popular episode where one of the characters was sucked into the void because he tried to leave Facebook, hence the title.

I found the majority of time I was active on Facebook is when I was mentally unwell. This is obviously not in my best interest and probably says something relevant about Facebook’s general negative (IMO) character.

I feel ’lighter’ already!
