I’m Going On a Facebook Fast
I've been having trouble with my iPhone lately. It's moving very slooooowly. Webpages are not loading. Apps are taking a long time to open. Videos are not playing.
As a way to troubleshoot, I decided to remove the app that's taking up the most space in my device: Facebook. The timing felt right. It's been feed after feed of political comments and arguments and I'm sick of it all. I'm going to go on a bit of a Facebook fast. Mind you, this is not me going "cold turkey." I'll still check the site but only from a computer and only for a limited time each day.
I've been working on ways to be more productive and realize that I'm spending too much time mindlessly scrolling through social media. I love feeling connected to all my contacts. I enjoy seeing their pictures and non-political posts. But right now, the atmosphere is a bit too hostile so I feel the need to curtail the amount of time I spend there.
I've seen posts from other people who are going off line for a while. Are you one of them? Is it because of all the negativity? Or because it's kind of a time suck? Or both?
