I Quit Facebook—and You Should Too

Eric Karjaluoto writing on his blog,

I struggle with focus. Leaving Facebook and Twitter is the single most effective thing I’ve done to remedy this. Free of the ability—and pestering—to check an alert, I can achieve flow state more easily than before. (As an aside, that was the beauty of a Walkman: it helped me get into what I was doing; whereas, an iPhone seems to do the opposite.)

I keep coming back to leaving these two platforms...and more. What am I getting from these infinity pools other than a desire for what I don't have and a need to always check back in? I think I'm almost ready to take the plunge and step back into full-time reality.
