Going on two years without Facebook. At first I thought it will be hard to stay in touch with friend but it is the opposite, I get to hangout more often with my friends, our conversations are more intimate, we genuinely want to know what happened since we last saw each other. As far as news goes I subscribed to news paper, have dozen email subscriptions which delivers it to my inbox every morning.

I started making photo albums again and putting my pictures in there whenever friends come over I get to show it to them.

As far as cat videos goes I get to watch them on YouTube

To be honest it has been the most productive time of my life since I deactivated Facebook and my friendship has become stronger

Moral of the story yes you an live without Facebook
