For many years since I started on social networks, firts on hi-5 and then facebook a part of me never got fully conected to the social paradigm those sites include. I've never been a very social guy, and I'm more of a solitaire and isolated person.
My therapists told me to at least stay in contact with friends in those sites and try to know new people, for some time I try it but inthe end my suspects and opinions about this "social netsworks" became true.
We live in a world where people may look nice and social, where networks promise us to be closer to others and create relationships (friendship, love, etc) through the magic of internet, the truth is this sites are just an extension of how society really is and the false world we live in, were it is better to lie and block someone that trying to solve our problems, in which we can uload photos and stories of how we aren't, and brag about things never happened.
For several years I saw my anxiety growing while I watched how other people enjoy being with friends, going out and talking while I just couldn't do it, even when I tried I just couldn't achieve a true friendship and I wasted precious time in those sites, time I could spend on myself and in my personal growth.
Is for that and for a lot more I decided to erase all my accounts in this networks, they just don't worth the time and effort and more important my inner peace.
Also, I guess trying to being social in real life is not for me, I'll just isolate myself looking for the guy I used to be, alone but happy and productive.
