Facebook Free

Going Facebook free for LentTen years ago, giving up chocolate or cigarettes for Lent would have been seen as a tough and ultimately rewarding challenge for most but this year one student from Manchester is going one step further: giving up Facebook. Easy for some, but hugely dramatic for most.


Lauren Percival has started detailing her experiences by writing a blog exclusively for Mobilesplease, which details her experiences and the trauma that going Facebook free brings with it.


“Over the years I have become addicted to Facebook; I’ve rekindled past friendships, formed new ones and even been involved in arguments,” said Lauren Percival, who is studying International Fashion Marketing at Manchester Metropolitan University. “Facebook is a great website, however it can be destructive and not to mention distracting. And that’s why I’ve decided it’s time to take a break.”


You can follow Lauren’s progress here, where she will be posting updates and sharing how the experience is going. Please feel free to comment, wish her luck and provide general encouragement!
