Here is my Yahoo comment about too much time on FB causing depression:
"Humans are wired with "free will". Anything in excess is unhealthy.
Begrudgingly, I got sucked into FB to keep up with family until a "so-called" friend of my niece decided he didn't like me (doesn't know me). She, because of his angst, blocked me and also got her mom and cousins to do the same. I felt if they are that shallow; who needs that? She actually did me a huge favor! I'm off FB and have been for a very long time. I miss updates about my daughter, her life, and my grandchildren. The whole world knows more about them than me. Hey, it only takes a few more strokes to email. I also have a land line and a cell phone. I'm still here, still available, and still love them - in spite of how I feel about their actions, choices, and FB."
I don't miss it. Having said all of this, I recently joined Twitter. Not for a social medium so much as I enjoy the challenge of 140 characters to express an opinion or make a point. I also enjoy posting and sharing some of my favorite photos. It is my choice whether I spend 10 minutes a day, or hours a day on this website. I also find I learn a lot from those I "follow". It's a good learning tool. None of my family are even on Twitter, that I am aware of . . .
