Eaglehawk woman Thelma Schnobbs announced yesterday plans to quit Facebook after 8 years.

Ms. Schnobbs decided she was sick and tired of the site wasting her time and posted the following message.

“I’m going off Facebook for a while, because this site can be exhausting and it’s wasting my time. Everyone who knows me well enough knows they can call or email me to stay in touch. Otherwise send me a message on Facebook to ask for my number.’

The message did not reach a small amount of people without Facebook or internet.

Bendigo Council has offered to organise a city reception at the town hall in her honour. Prominent local identities Cogho and Elise Chapman will speak at the event.

The Bendigo Standard has offered a guest book in the comments below. Leave your message.
