Today, I got really frustrated with Facebook. I was pissed that they would keep pushing Message notifications thru on the app when I can't use said app to view them.
As you may or may not know, Facebook branched off the direct messaging function of their network into a separate app called Facebook Messenger. Why? Who knows. It makes zero logical sense to me.
But I refuse to use a second app to perform a function that can be done by one. But Facebook is still pushing notifications to their original app even though I can't access the message. And the notification bubble wouldn't go away even though I shut off message notifications in Settings.
So I deleted Facebook from my phone. I thought maybe a fresh install would fix it. I then went to re-download the app.
I stopped halfway through.
I thought about it and realized I want to try taking a break from Facebook. No more quizzes. No more updates. The only thing you'll see from me are posts that push through from other services like Instagram.
Let's see how long I can make this last.
Bear in mind, you may still see activity on my account. Katie uses it as her own account. Just know it's not me.
