Moving away from Facebook

This is something that has been on the back of my mind for quite some time already. I really started hating facebook more and more, but find myself in a weird position.

On a personal note I don't need facebook, plain simple, it used to be a space to connect with my friends but has become a place to connect with the world...

I have "friends" on facebook that I don't even know and my timeline has become nothing but things I don't need or even want in my life. I know I could just stop following people and I do sometimes but when you have more than 1000 friends it gets pretty complicated.

On the business side of things, I need facebook. I own a CrossFit affiliate and I need to communicate on a regular bases with my community, and for that Facebook is a great plateform and is absolutely necessary. I'm thinking about reimplementing a blog on the website to start getting people going to the website to fetch information , but Facebook is such an easier option and you can reach way more people than with a website. Mostly because you intruduce yourself into those timelines instead of making them go to the "trouble" of actually going to the blog.

My perfect solution would be to just delete my personal account and only retain / manage my business page on Facebook but I haven't found a way to do that efficiently yet... If you know a way please let me know.
