Have been contemplating my use of social media apps on my phone for most of this year. This past week I started the process and have finally finished deleting my accounts for Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp.
It’s bittersweet and I will go through some withdrawal from Instagram on my phone. Going back to a browser to interact will feel like stepping back in time; and hopefully that is a good thing.
I’m also hoping this will help me read more literature, post to this blog, perhaps take up a bit of vlogging on YouTube and posting here. Also I’d like to spend more time with people in person.
I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve deactivated or deleted Facebook over the past ten years. Not sure if I’ll go back, but I have a hunch this time it will be final. I’ll update on my latest book completion soon.
