I’ve written a bit about the need to reduce social media usage, so this month I’m gonna give it a try and have decided to disconnect from Facebook and Twitter until the end of the month. Actually, the real motivation is to minimize the chances of accidentally reading spoilers for Game of Thrones and Avengers Endgame! But taking a trial run of a social media purge seems a good secondary reason too.
I can still be contacted via email, and there’s still a bunch of people I communicate with regularly through Messenger, so I can still be reached there. (Facebook’s spinning Messenger off into a separate app makes it possible to take a hiatus from the social media part and still have the comms part).
Let’s see if my will can hold.
