In this day and age, is it okay for someone in early 20s to not have any social media presence?Subscribe
I went through a break up as you can see from my posts, and I permanently deleted my Facebook, IG and Snapchat (yeah, they actually let you do that now). The only two social media accounts I have right now are LinkedIn and Twitter to stay connected and informed. I’ve even deleted those others from my phone. I was addicted to them at one point, I would post everything and I actually maintained a food blog/diary/whatever. The reason for deleting them was because they were adding to my post break-up “depression” so I decided to take a break initially but then deleted them because I would always reactivate them.
Anyway, whenever someone asks me if I have FB or IG and I tell them I don’t, they always think it’s “weird” and automatically question my credibility, at least the girls from dating apps would (before I started seeing my gf).
Also, I’ve noticed that ever since I’ve deleted them, I’ve been unaware of the “small talk” happening around town. I mean being out of loop. Sometimes I wish I hadn’t deleted them.
