One Last Day…for a while

Tomorrow will mark the last day on social media for a good long while. I’ve decided to take a hiatus from all social media over the season of Lent.  I’ll most likely be making a return on April 21st, Easter Sunday.

I have become aware that, just speaking for myself, social media has made me anything but social.  I am able to keep up with local events and the like, but for the most part, it keeps me from actually doing things on a social level.  So in that respect, I think staying away will be a good thing.

Tonight I read an article in Mother Jones magazine detailing some of the manipulation cast upon us by social media.  While much of this might be inconsequential, I think it can lead to increased usage of the social media platforms.  I largely don’t realize how much time I do spend on it until I’m put into a situation where I’m doing without.

So I’ll do my usual posts one last time tomorrow and bid good bye for the next month and a half.  And who knows what might transpire in that time period – it might be a permanent solution to a mind that tends to wander from time to time.
