That's what I did to my facebook account. 

I've been thinking about it for awhile, and I basically came down to the facts that:

1) I have a lot of friends
2) Some of which I accepted their request and hope good for them, but don't really wish to read their status updates when they post what they are doing.
3) The friends that I do want to follow better or get their updates, don't post frequently enough to make it worth my while.
4) While I love the photo sharing on the site and email access to lots of friends instantly, it just wasn't bringing me joy when I sat down to it.
5) And I was sitting down to it more than often that I really wanted to.

So...I deactivated my account. And you know, I felt tremendous peace when I did so.  What I think I will do, though, since I did it without letting anybody know is to send an email out about where to contact me. 

This will also enable me to focus more on this blog and our photo site. 

Hurray for finally getting the courage to just say, "No!"
