Facebook is an addiction! It is the center of your entire social universe and since the data breach of 50 million Facebook accounts, it has been criticised a lot and has been facing a backlash over its role of spreading disinformation to the public on how it handles users’ data who sign-up on its platform. So in a case, if you have fallen out of love with Facebook, it’s easy to delete or deactivate your account. But TechJuice has compiled a list of reasons that will make you think twice, in fact thrice before giving up your Facebook accounts, let’s get right to it.

1. How will you remember birthdays of friends and family without Facebook?

Facebook is the only social media platform that makes sure you don’t forget the birthdays of your friends, family, and acquaintances. This might be the only savior out there that reminds you of ‘Birthday Treats’. I mean who doesn’t love to get treats, the iconic phrase ‘Treat De’ is only possible because of those birthday notifications that Facebook gives of your close friends and family.

Posting funny pictures or posting a funny status on the Facebook wall of the birthday boy or girl is the golden opportunity for roosting them, these funny moments are worth keeping your Facebook account activated.

2. How will you show off to your network through check-ins at your favorite places?

Facebook allows you to check-in in your favorite spots when you’re on the go. This, my friends, is like ‘what oxygen is to humans’ situation for some of the people out there. There are some people who dine-out just to check in a restaurant or even go to trips just to make check-ins along the way to their destination. Pakistani’s love to travel and eat food, and Facebook is the ultimate platform that makes sure that our ‘Shokhapan’ stays alive.

3. How will you learn what are your loved ones up to without Facebook?

Although Facebook isn’t the only platform that makes you connected with your friends and family, it is the most used platform on the planet, especially in Asia. People posts status, check-in to places when they are traveling, post pictures of their special moments, add life achievements on Facebook profile such as getting married or even getting a degree. Hence Facebooks makes sure you don’t miss out those special moments or feelings of your friends and family.

4. How will you get your daily dose of memes and gifs?

Facebook is the ultimate memes provider for all the people out there, whether it’s the current affairs or old news about politics, cricket or a movie. Memes are always the best way to express the feelings for all the Facebook users. I mean some of the people out there are known to be Gods of Memes such as ‘Anty Gormint’, ‘Axcusmee Kiya App bhi’ and ‘Uncle Majboor’, these were the most popular memes of 2017, and still going in 2018 as well.

Besides memes, It gives you all the latest information right in your feed, saving you time.

5. How will you cherish good fond memories of the past?

Facebook memories were introduced on 24 March 2015 and have been loved by the people because if you don’t remember what you did 10 years ago, Facebook will embarrass you by reminding you of it.

I mean this reason is just too good to ignore, who doesn’t love to read about the ‘good o’l days’; What you did on that particular day or what did you share on Facebook, and what were your feelings at a certain time.

Memories are priceless, and Facebook memories are the major reason for you to keep your account activated.

Facebook was launched on February 4, 2004, and since then it has been a major part of our life. It has become a type of social validation in today’s world. People who don’t have a Facebook account are said to be ‘weird ones’. Even if some people who still don’t have a Facebook account are using other social media platforms such as Whatsapp, Snapchat or Instagram etc to keep up with the age of technology.

So, do you think you will be able to delete your Facebook account?!
