No one needs a Facebook Diet more than me. I blame it on living alone. It’s what you do when you wake up, go to bed, or are standing in line bored. Did you know single people spend more time on Facebook and post more than people who are coupled?
Recently, I was given The Facebook Diet (50 Funny Signs of Facebook Addiction and Ways to Unplug with a Digital Detox) by Gemini Adams from my LaLaScoop partner Rochelle. Ha! I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or maybe cry, but I started coming up with excuses. “I like to read. I am single. I’m promoting our site. I’m bored in line. Doesn’t everyone want to know where the new latest hotspot is?” Honestly, sometimes I check-in just to remember the name or place location. Haaaaaaa!
The author encourages us to examine the health of our high-tech habits in this entertaining book showing a tongue-in-cheek look at our love of social media. The digital detox tips introduces some fun ways to help you take a Facebook Diet.
Anyone need a Facebook Diet like me? I’ve learned to give myself massive breaks to calm my mind from all the noise. It can be hard, but it can be necessary. This book is downright hysterical and had me cringing at some of the similarities. Need some great laughs with 50 hilarious cartoons?
Here are some of favorite book lines:
You suffer from repetitive strain injury from excessive use of your tablet, laptop, or smartphone.
Nothing seems real until you have posted it on Facebook.
You art-direct when someone’s taking your photo so it’s perfect for your next profile picture.
You have started to mark things you “like” with post-it notes.
You open your account to check for messages and you find yourself sitting there five hours later.
The Unplug Series makes a fun gift. Start your Diet now.
