I think about doing it all the time, but never follow through. I am talking about turning off Facebook. Remember how much fun it used to be? These days, not so much!  I am still addicted though.

Well, getting rid of may make you happier, but less informed.

 In a study done at New York University and Stanford University, participants were given $102 to shut turn off Facebook for a month.

Not wasting time on Facebook gave them at least an extra hour of free time everyday.

 "These studies show that people who use Facebook more are more depressed, but the problem is correlation doesn't create causation. We didn't know if Facebook was making people depressed or depressed people were retreating into Facebook," said Hunt Alcott of NYU.
