For an undetermined amount of time, I'm going to be taking a break from most social media activity. Call it whatever you want: rest, recovery, therapy, need for a change of scenery, election fatique, information overload, a distraction. They are all correct.
Yup. I'm right there with you, Adam. I deactivated my Twitter and Facebook accounts about 10 days ago. Not sure if I'll let them evaporate at the end of the 30-day cooling-off period, but I sure feel less frustrated with the world since dropping out.
I did it in direct response to the insane election circus south of the border. Social media was just too much, too often, for too long. So, the accounts are gone. I haven't missed them for a second.
I'll still be blogging here, of course, and I'll be reading 1011 RSS feeds and articles on Medium and elsewhere. I don't think I'll be missing out any important news.
