In the past month, I had successfully uninstalled Twitter and Facebook apps on the iPhone. In the next few days (before the new year), I will deactivate Facebook as well. I will need to activate it occasionally for work, but other than that I will be off Facebook for a while or maybe for good.
I am not anti-Facebook. I don’t have a problem with the social media network. It gives me a chance to keep up with family members, friends, and colleagues. I just need to cut back on it to be more with the people around me, especially my kids. I haven’t checked Facebook much and haven’t written any update status. I thought of keeping it that way, but when people mentioned me or messaged me on Facebook, I have to response. Otherwise, it feels rule. So the best solution for now is just deactivate it.
As for Twitter, I use it mostly to keep up with the web industry; therefore, I don’t need to be engaged. I just weed through what I need to do when I get a few minutes at work or at lunchtime. I no longer have the app on my phone so it should not be a big deal.
I will keep this blog running. I will write everything on here and not on Medium or LinkedIn. I will write more about this in the future. For now, the best place to find out what I am up to is here.
