|YOU RIKE JENNY WADE? I RIKE JENNY WADE.|
Lately, for about a week I stopped my usual activities on Facebook, well almost. I log in, scroll down the News Feed and log out. I ignored the posts on my Wall, pretending I never logged in at all. I turned off my phone for about a week too. Except for blogging, but my posts were scarce too anyway for the last few days.
And with this I literally died, virtually. Nobody knew about my whereabouts and it was funny to discover that a friend of mine who stayed just next door was wondering where I was, when in fact I was just in my room and lived my usual routine. When you're gone online, isn't it similar to death?
At first people will be looking for you, drop comments and ask your whereabouts. Next you'll be forgotten and people will move on with their virtual life.
For some moment, I think I'm getting tired with this virtual life. How most people around me lived a large part of their lives on Facebook. Mobile phone itself is a phony way in maintaining integrity of social relationships, well, that's my opinion. We're relying too much on technology.
I'm getting my real life back. I am not planning to live as a hippie though.
