Almost a year ago I posted this post on ‘Social Media’ and I had some interesting things to say! I thought I would review my feelings towards social media sites a year later in a littlepost…
I don’t know if I have reduced the amount of time I spend on social media sites since this time last year but I think I use sites very differently. One of those things is that I no longer have the Twitter app on my phone. If I want to take a look I use safari so it’s not as easy to access, which means that I kinda forget about it for most of the time. Deleting the app has also saved me from angry tweeting as much which is also a big bonus as I get a bit fiery about something and within seconds I’ve told the world. Which isn’t the greatest thing to do. On the whole I only really use Twitter to promote my blog posts and to find new bloggers to follow, so my need to use it is much much less.
Instagram well that’s a tough one! Thanks to the introduction of insta stories I hardly use Snap Chat so I guess that a plus but it means I am spending a lot more time looking at the perfect people of the Instagram world! It’s difficult because if you know me you’ll know that I love photography, so for that it’s great! And a great way to share things. But for my self conscious anxiety head it’s not a great thing to be endlessly scrolling through (I think I talked about that a lot last time). Plus the introduction of videos now means I get sucked into the black hole of endless videos and that is a big time waster.
I guess I still have the same issues with social media as I did last year but I think I use it a lot less then I did. I now don’t really care too much if a picture doesn’t get any likes. Yes I could probably detox a little more but I don’t think there is any chance of a complete detox!
Thanks for taking a look! Do yo need a social media detox?
