While David says he was a curmudgeon I’m thinking of becoming one.
I’ve done all the stuff David suggests and I still wonder if I’m causing people to waste time on Facebook. I know this post gets sent to Facebook which results in some vanishingly small amount of traffic.
Even practicing slow social media doesn’t ring quite true to me. It asks for so much discipline and moderation. I don’t do moderation well.
In many ways I feel like all the suggestions for social media are gymnastics trying to make something work which we should never have been involved with.
If I told you to try this new thing that would take up hours of you day for little benefit, you’d never be on board. Yet that is what Facebook it. The more we use Facebook the worse we feel.
Maybe it’s time to stop the gymnastics and just cut social media out.
