How To Quit Facebook Completely

Remember when you first made your account on Facebook with the simple idea of staying in touch with your friends?

But now you can’t remember how you got so madly addicted to it? With Facebook slowly taking over your life, here are some steps to help you quit Facebook completely.

1. Admit Being Addicted
The first step is usually the hardest for most people. Thanks to Facebook being available on diverse technological platforms, an average Indian is known to spend 13 hours a week doing just about nothing on it. Facebook can be addictive, but the first step in rehabilitation is to admit that you are addicted to it. You are probably known to log in now and then to refresh the page or to check for new notifications, add friends or post events and then spend the rest of the time aimlessly browsing your connections.

2. Make a Facebook Schedule
Having realised that you’re logging on to Facebook for no good whatsoever, it is instructed that you evaluate your hours on Facebook and follow a strict Facebook schedule. Devote some time to browse through Facebook, and browse only for the time you’ve assigned yourself. Keep yourself in check from overstaying your visit. Keeping a log book, mentioning the duration of Facebook usage per day, will also keep your addiction in check.

3. Engage in Other Activities
Do you remember your friends in real life? Now would be a good time to organically meet and spend time with them. A good way to keep Facebook off your mind would be to keep yourself busy doing other activities. Develop a new hobby, groom your pet, groom yourself, read a book or learn a new language. The possibilities of a world outside of Facebook are endless.

4. Find Alternatives If you remember turning on your computer only to check Facebook, you need to find an alternative for your habit desperately. Remember the other functions that your computer used to perform? Remember the time when you were addicted to MS Paint or Solitaire? Getting back to those applications now, will be a boon for your addiction. If you were only using Facebook for messaging to get in touch with friends, it is time to update your email client and use an alternative method to connect.

5. Cancel Account
If all the above methods prove fruitless, the best one to resort to would be to cancel your Facebook account. After you inform your friends about your decision to quit and provide alternative contact information, you can delete your friends, clear your content, remove all pictures from your account and proceed to deactivate your account. Doing this will give you the necessary breather, away from Facebook.

Facebook, like any other addiction, can be cured with the correct attitude and some necessary steps. You will need to be diligent in your approach to quit. If you do so, you can hope to be cured of your Facebook addiction completely.

Kingston Launches HyperX Plug and Play RAM for Intel PCs

Kingston has released its new HyperX plug and play (PnP) series which is a collection of memory kits that utilize modules which are capable of working at frequencies of either 1,600 MHz or 1,866 MHz. This memory module is designed specifically for use with desktops and laptops powered by the latest generation of Intel Core i5 or Core i7 central processing units.

There are six kits in total, all of them composed of two kits, meaning that modules of 2 GB and 4 GB are used. There are two Dual in-line Memory Module (DIMM) kits, while the other four come in the Small Outline In-line Memory Module (SODIMM) form factor.

The modules are programmed using Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) compliant settings, allowing 1600MHz and 1866MHz frequency support. It is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the machine, as the system automatically recognizes faster memory speed with no further basic input/output system (BIOS) settings required.
