BONUS: My Practical Wisdom for Using Facebook
I recently read the book Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World and another book about getting free from digital addiction.
They both explain the importance of identifying the specific purpose of each website, app, or social media tool you’re using. It’s when these lines get blurred, that digital addiction starts to take over.
These are the things that Facebook was intended for:
- Posting photos of YOU
- Sharing news about YOU
- Sharing things that YOU have created
- Sharing things that YOU have done
- Sharing things that YOU are doing to make the world a better place
- Seeing photos of YOUR friends
- Seeing news from YOUR friends
- Seeing things YOUR friends have created
- Seeing things YOUR friends have done
- Seeing things that YOUR friends are doing to make the world a better place
