For me, and somehow for most Syrians Facebook was a tool for us to communicate with other family members around the world, things has changed, and Facebook become a place where you started to read news, to see the point view of other people, a revolution here and revolution there, and a lot of sources for news, all type of news ..
To make my story short, things started to be a bit annoying for me, everyone trying to post the happy moment they have, the success they do and every single moment they can share just to let you know that they are living the Dream no matter if its true or not, all what we see is that part.
In my live I don't interact with people that much, I love to stay behind my computer, reading twitter or even try to
chat on twitter ( do you remember when others used to say
Twitter is not a chat ), any way, seeing all this nice and
joyful atmosphere made my live like hell, yes when I can see everyone else has no issues, I remember that I have too
much issues to deal with (and am not alone, the past 5y was not the easiest on us the Syrians), may be I was lucky to
get out of the country, but that does not mean that I am living the Dream nor that I don't have problems to deal
with every single day.
So eventually I decided to just suspend my Facebook account, and only leave the Messenger, at least with the Messenger, I'll not have to deal with everyone posts nor read everything they post, I can only read what they send to me and when they send it to me.
This somehow got some nice peace to my inner mind, maybe not 100% cause the source for my problems was not only Facebook nor seeing people happy. And till today, I cant say how much nice I find my live without Facebook and his sh%\$#y social media, I know I still have to deal with twitter, but at least twitter is not Facebook (at least not for now).
