More facts that make Facebook disgusting
The average Facebooker uses the site 450 hours a year!
‘Facebook, several studies have shown, can negatively impact your life — from relationships to your own well-being. (Even Facebook’s own invasive study, showed that negative posts on a news feed, led to people posting more negative things, which is reason enough to quit.)

‘So what can you do? You can quit, or as the Huffington Post points out, just restrict your daily use.

‘I plastered Post-its to my desk, work computer, home laptop and phone. Each helpfully reminded me, “No Facebook.” Though I didn’t have the courage to remain deactivated for an extended period of time. It was enough to break the endless [news feed] cycle, quell the jolt of happiness triggered with each notification and remove the crushing defeat when “friends” didn’t like your status.

When Brassaï notes how moving it is that “in a glance, you can take in thousands of years of history,” Picasso responds enthusiastically:

‘”I always forbade everyone to clean my studios, dust them, not only for fear they would disturb my things, but especially because I always counted on the protection of dust. It’s my ally. I always let it settle where it likes. It’s like a layer of protection. When there’s dust missing here or there, it’s because someone has touched my things. I see immediately someone has been there. And it’s because I live constantly with dust, in dust, that I prefer to wear gray suits, the only color on which it leaves no trace…”‘
