Sorry Jason... you're way wrong on this one.
burying your head in the sand -- or elsewhere -- isn't the solution.
definitely you need to play around with your Facebook message notification setting defaults -- and they should probably do a better job choosing a lower default ''ambient noise level" -- however, to close yourself off to your *entire* social network is not the answer. dialing down the priority / volume level might be, but that doesn't mean you need to declare bankruptcy. just means you need to filter better.
love ya brother, but yer throwin' the baby out with the bathwater.
