@techlore ... You do realise you're posting this *on* social media, right?

This video came at a time I was removing as much social media in my life as possible due to mental health and burnout. It really helped encourage me several months in that I was going in the right direction and I could still balance a business brand with a disconnected personal life. Thank you for sharing this.

After spending four years as a community manager and then a data analyst at a digital marketing company for 4 years, I gradually began deleting my accounts after I left. As of last week I deleted my LinkedIn - the last social media account I head. I 100% agree with all points here. I kept trying to tell myself "what if I need it", but after more than a year without Facebook (even as the lockdowns started happening), I can say that I am completely happy with my decision and I encourage everyone else to do so. Thanks for the video (and uploading it to a Peertube instance)!

@techlore I moved to Mastodon, it's a healthier place. Meantime I'm on the journey of de-googlifying my digital presence and replacing all intrusive products.

@techlore I have found that just moving to Mastodon years ago has helped a lot. That and deleting FB. I still use Twitter and IG, but I only really use it for marketing purposes.

You're right. I stopped using social media and I am now less angry and my stress level is much lower. Everyone needs to know that life is possible without social media. You don't need it but they need you. Walk away now.
