Little George met Sgt John Isenmann

Joplin News First

Many people like little George's mom are taking a break from the drama of Facebook

JOPLIN, Mo. — People are leaving Facebook, some temporarily, and some permanently. And everyone has different reasons.

Saturday we talked to Beth Chambers, just by chance as we took a little video of her little boy, George, who sat in Sgt. John Isenmann’s Joplin Police patrol car for a moment to try it out.

Afterwards I said, “I can send the video to you on Facebook?” She paused and said, “well I’m taking a break from Facebook.”

Beth is not alone.

According to an article in Conversations magazine earlier this year people leave Facebook because they feel they are wasting time, it’s too negative or the “psychological effects of perpetual social comparison.”
