Social networks have so firmly entered our lives that many can hardly imagine a day without watching the news or chatting with virtual friends. The leading position in the world in terms of the number of users is occupied by a social network Facebook.
However, there are situations when it is better to close a profile on a social network. Let's consider some of them.
You are looking for a job
If you are looking for a job or are on probation, any careless statement or controversial post on the Internet can harm or raise unnecessary questions. It is better to hide your page from the eyes of the employer and colleagues for the first time.
You are in the process of divorce or breakup
The second common case when a page on a social network needs to be protected from prying eyes is parting with a partner. You should not inform your ex-spouse or boyfriend about your mood or feelings, so as not to give rise to possible manipulation, especially if the 'break' is difficult.
With information about whereabouts, plans, intentions, or new connections, it is easy to damage your reputation or spread false rumors, not to mention the possibility of unexpected meetings. Therefore, removing the page temporarily can be beneficial to both parties.
You need complete privacy
It is worth closing the profile in Facebook even when, for one reason or another, you need to maintain complete privacy. For example, a job that does not allow you to have accounts on social networks. Such conditions are often imposed on employees of major companies or corporations, as well as government officials, law enforcement officials, the military, or their families.
Social media addiction
Another case when you need to think about stopping the active use of Facebook is dependence on social networks, which can lead to serious psychological problems.
A person subject to Internet addiction in real life becomes a 'hermit', which negatively affects his health, psyche and financial situation. Such people pay much less attention to the world around them, they go out less often, losing their skills of live communication, becoming more timid and shy, and any need for a face-to-face dialogue provokes severe stress.
If you spend most of your time on the Internet on empty communication and watching news feeds, other people's pages and stories, you should try to rethink your behavior and get rid of this addiction. In this case, deleting your Facebook account is the first and necessary step.
