  • Sep 18 2012: Yes as long as its free willed and not something like government control. I have deactivated my facebook for about 3 months now, i didn't realize how much time it consumed, my workdays become more productive, I saw things outside downtown where I work that I never noticed before because going to and fro work I was deep in my phone examining the social world. I have been calm and collected and its allowed me to stay away from insignificant drama issues in other peoples lives. I'm also a musician and it has helped me see things differently not having the social world shoved down my throat so what I write now feels more natural.
