Even though we agree that Facebook is the easiest way to keep in touch with our loved ones, our direction of thinking may be biased.

I remember what a friend posted before he deleted his account and I quote “I once had a life until someone asked me to create a Facebook account” – It sounded funny but it is actually true.

You hardly keep in touch, no visitations, no hanging out, just you and your device. That’s it on that so let’s see how to deactivate your Facebook account and take a break from this Facebook thing.

Note: When you deactivate your account, you can always reactivate it. Also, no one will be able to connect with you throughout the deactivation period – no one will see your activities, profile and etc.
