I left facebook more than a month ago. It was never gratifying for my ego or self-esteem, in fact, the opposite. I had to get away because when I see pictures or hear stories from people I know it felt like they're saying, "Hey check out all this fun we're having that we didn't invite you to!" Besides that, even my long-time "friends" rarely commented on my posts or posted anything relating to me. And when I closed shop all of 3 people bothered to ask me about it...most probably didn't even notice.
facebook has been nearly the only way I connect with people because I don't see any people daily in regular life. I don't have any (regular) reason to interact with anyone (such as work, regular activities, etc.).
It's depressing, and I miss at least having that minimum of communication with others.
Should I go back?*
