No Social Media for 30 days.
My mom has been free from social media for nearly 21,600 days... pretty remarkable.
Today is day 2 of no social media.
Going pretty well, too.
If you're curious, here are my reasons:
- Social Media is killing my focus. There's simply too much on my plate to allow the constant distraction ping of social media to keep me from focusing on what's important.
- Facebook Trending is the bane of my existence. The hysteria and reactionary mindset this seems to be perpetuating in our culture isn't healthy, and it even came out that (Surprise, Surprise) it's heavily curated, not actually trending.
- Instagram is careening towards creative homogenization, and I don't need to keep liking the same photos over and over.
- Twitter just got tossed out with the bathwater.
Stay tuned for my thoughts on how this "social media fast" shapes my mind, thoughts and focus.
