    Yeap, I did it. After 3 years I have deactivated my facebook. I won't lie, it took a lot of willpower, but I came to realise that for me it was simply a distraction and a waste of time that could be used in the real world.

    I only plan on keeping it deactivated until next week, as I just want to see how it feels and (as much as I hate to admit it) I need it to organise things and keep in touch with people.

    However, until then, does anyone have any advice on how to keep me from reactivating it immediately? And is there any new things you could suggest me taking up to occupy my new-found time that is now available to me?

    Focus more on work or school, go out more with friends, take up a hobby such as painting, drawing, writing, whatever you fancy.

    Facebook never fully deactivates for months, but if you really want to avoid yourself, reactivate and delete all your friends and pictures so if you do try and reactivate you're left with nothing.

    Change your password to a string of numbers you won't possibly be able to remember , write it down and give it to someone you won't see for a week!

    Pretty good idea, think I'll do this, except keep the numbers locked up in my locker and school and force myself not to take it :P

    By the way giving your password to someone else or keeping it somewhere does nothing. You can reset it through your email if you really wanted on it lol
