Lenten promise

Reflecting on My Facebook Free Lent

Some people give up sweets for Lent. Others give up swearing. I've done both. This year, the glaring vice I could see during my pre-Lent musings was my "Facebook Login & Refresh My Notifications" Addiction. It didn't matter whether I turned off most notifications in my Facebook settings. Nor did it matter that I uninstalled the app on my mobile devices. I used to log in - a lot. It certainly didn't help matters that I have personal and business contacts on Facebook and belong to international Facebook groups (TL: The group never sleeps). So I gave up Facebook for Lent — cold turkey — on Ash Wednesday.
