Social Media

For Lent, I thought I would truly do something for myself–and give up one form of social media (the really popular one where friends connect with friends–dare I mention it, less I get millions of hits). I chose to give up social media because I spend way too much time on it. I first joined to “keep in touch” with my friends. However, I think I now know more than enough. I know their ups,downs, their political and religious views, what their kids are doing, what their friends are doing etc…etc..etc… And it has gotten to the point where I wonder where my friends are if they don’t post, if they don’t let me know that they are eating chicken for dinner. After work, and even while at the gym, I stop to check people’s status.

So far, so good. I do have the urge to check though…but I am going to force myself to get through the forty days.

I will however continue to write here, as it is therapeutic!!

    I abstained from FB during Lent 2014; it was odd at first then I discovered there was all this pleasant free time. It is a good situation.

    My facebook friends just share what they find on the internet that is interesting. It is beginning to remind me more and more of reddit.

    But did you update your status to “not updating my status”? I only blog, text and email, not interested in learning more. But playing on my smartphone is addictive, like right now, I am supposed to be doing something else….darn it.
