Don't get me wrong, I really do like Facebook! I've been using it for over a year and am amazed by all the people I have re-connected with via Facebook! I've also been able to stay in contact with some people that I probably would have lost touch with otherwise. Overall I think Facebook is an awesome tool for connecting with other people.
With that being said there are way too many distractions on Facebook!! Over the past month I have really been trying to limit my time on Facebook and TRYing and get rid of the distractions. I have all my Facebook email notifications automatically archived and going to a special email folder so I don't get distracted by them all day long! I have chosen not to play Mafia Wars, Farmville, etc like so many other people are doing!
After doing this I still can't believe all the CRAP that is still on Facebook!!! I keep blocking more and more Quizzes, Polls, and other things that have and will distract me and suck up my time and energy! Now, I think I'm wasting too much time and energy by getting annoyed by all the CRAP and blocking it!!
I know there's a new Facebook Lite that has a lot less stuff. However, I can't figure out how to access my Facebook Pages from Facebook Lite. Nor do I see a way to view only status updates. I'm sure once more people start using Facebook Lite Facebook will find even more ways to suck us all in and keep on Facebook Lite too!!
What have you done to limit your Facebook distractions???
