It is really a hard decision for me to deactivate my account as of the moment I know I will surely miss my Facebook friends in there. From it, I will lost touch of their activities. But I have to make a big decision. This decision is to temporarily deactivate my Facebook account so that I will be able to focus on important things which is my studies. I already made up my mind. I want to focus only to my studies until I graduate. This is my goal for now. Things in school are becoming hard and complicated which I need to endure for the whole year. I closed temporarily also my Facebook for me not to be tempted and waste my time in there. Do you think I made the right decision? I want to hear all your opinion guys. Thanks a lot and have fun here in mylot!

I think you made the right of decision. In my situation, facebook is important because we have this kind of private group that my professor handles and he attached lessons, schedules and announcements there. If you have really nothing to do related to your facebook then you did the right thing !! But your friends might miss you and aren`t you worry about if you haven`t heard about them or something? Anyways, good luck to your studies. I hope mylot does not gets along the way for your concentration

Hello se7enthbird! Thanks for your nice advices. I am really confused now because I use facebook also for educational purpose just like you. We also do the same thing in our class. However, I can't just rely on it. It won't be a big problem on my part since I can just ask a copy to my professor directly or to my classmates. Marrie1, I know to myself already I will surely miss a lot but this is just temporary. I need to endure this for this moment until I will finish.

That`s good if you can get it directly from your professor. In my part, we cannot do that. I can get it from my classmates but they still get it from the facebook an i don`t want to be a nuisance or something. If it`s only temporary then i know you can endure it. A week or two is not serious matter after all. You are welcome cearn. And thanks for the agree marrie

Yeah, that should be the way right from the start.. haha Leave facebook forever but it's nothing but a waste of time. Imagine the amount of time wasted in facebook, chatting with friends, wasting electricity, eating away laptop's battery life, u can be out there doing something more meaningful, helping to save the earth as well.. lol If u are able to leave facebook til end of this year, by time u finished your exams, i'm sure u might have forgotten all about facebook, which is a good thing haha

It would be a great idea if I would be able to do that. I wish I could but maybe I don't have to really leave facebook forever. I just have to lessen my time. It is a total waste of time if I always log in there. I don't want that kind of lifestyle.

Yes, studying is the most important factors for students. I have seen many students, who suffers to log in facebook during their exam days. Some people may not allow them to use facebook on exam days. In this manner you have take your own decision and it seems that you are self-confident. So best of luck for you . Stick on your decision.

Thanks if you think I am self-confident. I have to be because it is only myself I can depend on. There are many reasons that I need to be very diligent. Our school doesn't allow us to use facebook. The site is restricted. Studying is important. Very important.

I admit I have wasted so much time in facebook. I am always tempted in opening my account which says the devil side of me. The angel side of me says not to because there are still many things to finish. I really have to balance everything.

you've just made the right decision. I, too closed my account temporarily coz it's absolutely a waste of time. Would you gain money if you're on that site?- absolutely, no; If keeping track of your friends' activities would help your grades become higher in school?again it's 'no'. ergo, don't ever regret that decision.

You are right. It is hard to feel bad in the end for not doing my best because of wasting time to nonsense things. I don't want it to happen to me. Well, you also did the right decision for closing your account.

Hi friend, your decision is right, keep it up. You can do your fb activities at any time. But if you missed your studies now, you will regret a lot in the future, so concentrate with your studies and forget about your fb account for a while. You can login to your fb after finishing your exams

You are right. I only open my facebook account whenever I am finished with everything. Regret, I really hate to regret in the end. I don't want to regret things. I need to do well in my studies for me not to regret and lost. Fighting!

You just made the right decision. As you know, you are at the age to study and it is wise to focus on study. After you graduate school, then you have plenty of time to enjoy your Facebook. You will feel relaxed at that time. I love China

True. I can't wait to be relaxed and just doing nothing but facebook aside from finding work. Now, what I need to focus is my studies. Thanks for this wonderful advice. I really appreciate it a lot.

For me, you did the right thing in terms of your studies. No one can say that you did wrong because EDUCATION should be our top priority. Just make sure to inform your friends or other affiliate because so many people now want to communicate and inform others through social media. You migjt miss sime important events if you didn't inform them. I'm a graduating college student and i also have to focus only in accounting to secure my future. Stress is the output of my education world now. However, i nver think the same way, to deactivate yourself in social networking sites because i can still balance my time. Anyway, will u also be leavinv mylot? :D

No, I am not leaving mylot. I won't just be that very active here. I still want to participate in the discussions if ever I have the free time and especially when I miss mylot. In pertaining to education, we are so lucky to have able to go to school. That's why we need to priority our studies. I am a graduating student too. I need to put all my efforts, study hard and make my parents proud of me.
