Re: Another solution: share less
@cafzali,

I agree with you to a point. It's easier to stay in closer touch with 'fringe friends' as I call them. The closer friends, you'll most likely speak to on the phone or communicate via text, right?

@cafzali,

I really use FB as a way to share content with family & friends. From time to time, they'll also share something good with me too. That I would miss if I stopped.

@majenkins,

Not to mention that the BIG THINK is nothing you care about. Even if you do care about it, you could live better not hearing some people's ignorant opinions.

I'm not saying it's easy but it might be worth it to take a FB sabbatical.

@Ariella,

I'm interested to hear what about G+ keeps you on it instead of FB?

Re: Another solution: share less
I notice I've been sharing much fewer personal happenings. Stick to more news articles these days, unless it's really important.

Re: Another solution: share less
@pcharles09 Add me to the list of folks who just don't see abandoning Facebook as that difficult. While I see value and appreciate being able to share family photos, etc. with people who I was once more personally connected to but cannot be now, I don't look at Facebook as an actual vehicle to communicate with current friends. In other words, if I'm only talking to people via FB, they're a friend in a different context. It's nice to know what's going on with them, but if FB pushes people too far, many will stop seeing the value. 

Between the constant flubs on Facebook's part and the tendency of some folks to ramble on forever about politics there, I think breaking up won't be so hard to do for many.

Much simpler approach:
Stop using Facebook!

pcharles09, And how is it going to kill you to not hear what your most active friends had for dinner last night or what they think about the latest BIG THING in the news.

Re: Another solution: share less
@Pcharles09 yes, and that's not always going to happen. I use Google+ a lot more than FB, and quite a number of my FB connections are there, too. But a lot of the people who started out on FB keep active there and don't really post on or read G+. So the only way to keep with them is with the older network unless they're willing to email. I'd be fine with that option but die-hard FB people will even message through the social network rather than emailing directly.

Social is a Business Imperative
Social is a Business Imperative
The use of social media for a host of business purposes is rising. Indeed, social is quickly moving from cutting edge to business basic. Organizations that have so far ignored social - either because they thought it was a passing fad or just didnít have the resources to properly evaluate potential use cases and products - must start giving it serious consideration.
