Blogtember- Facebook Friends

I have decided to participate in Blogtember. It seems like something that would be pretty fun. I have no idea if I'll be able to actually do this, but I'm going to give it a try!

Today's prompt:

An anonymous letter to your Facebook friends. Be as snarky as you'd like. (but don't include people's real names.)

Dear Facebook Friends,

I am over it...I am over Facebook. I would love to be able to delete my profile and walk away. In fact I did that for the summer and it was amazing. I only came back, because I felt I had to. If I'm not on Facebook, I miss out on a lot. 
We rely on Facebook to update everyone on important and not so important aspects of our lives; new jobs, engagements, marriages, pregnancy, birth of children, birthdays, moving to new cities, vacations, where we went for lunch...everything related to life is shared via Facebook, including invites to parties, events and even dinner.

I am a supporter of social media and the concept of a Global Village...I really am.

But please, for the sake of humanity, step away from your computer, tablet, smartphone, whatever device(s) you use to access Facebook and use another medium- telephone call or face to face visit maybe- to share the happenings of your life with me. 

I am not just your Facebook friend, I am your real life friend too. Remember that.
