I know that we have been quiet as the Fall turned into the very cold Winter we have been experiencing. There is a good reason for it I promise! You see we have been untethering ourselves from our mobile phones. It all started when the notifications on my apps were driving me crazy and taking time away from the family just to check an ad (yes Facebook I'm mostly blaming you and your 'would you like to boost your post?' push notifications), You can read more about the start of this project in Untethering Part1,
So now we move on to why my 'Turn off Badges' from Untethering Part2 didn't cut it. Apps these days make it very difficult for you to turn off badge notifications and once I did figure it out, I had many issues with Facebook inadvertently updating and resetting my settings! I decided the time had come to simply say goodbye to my Facebook App.
So goodbye Facebook App! I will NOT be missing you or your notifications or constant red alert badges. Farewell. Adios. Good riddance!
Disclaimer; I still have my Facebook Pages App to check in on my readers! The push notifications are turned off though so I am not as quick to reply as in the past ;)
