At the beginning of December, or thereabouts, I decided to quit social media for a while. I'm not a huge social media user anyway and I've never felt comfortable putting my personal life online for just anyone to see. Personally, it doesn't feel right for me to allow strangers insight into my life and to have a bigger audience than the people directly around me. Quitting social media basically meant deactivating my Instagram account as that was my main vice. (I said farewell to Facebook a few years ago, Twitter was something I never really understood the hype, Snapchat was a no, and TikTok I'll leave to Gen Z.)
I just thought it would be a nice break from constantly picking up my phone and mindlessly scrolling for fifteen - twenty minutes. What I didn't expect was all the other benefits that came with it...Quite honestly, I'm shocked at how I feel now.
So, in this week's episode, I discuss what I've discovered in the last few weeks, the changes I feel, and what my thoughts about social media are. This is all my opinion, by the way - you can disagree and you can argue. Right now, I'm more than happy to continue with this social media free way of life.
What do you think of social media?
Think I'm talking crap?
Or maybe you've given up social media in 2021?
Perhaps you're someone who can't live without it, or you've never had any social media accounts?
