Visual Idiot retires from the industry(

    I distanced myself from social and found first deleting the apps helped tons, Facebook, in particular, was really draining my time,... I would still visit social sites but was forced to type the web address in a browser, the experience is shitty, slow and eventually, I would start forgetting to check... I'm now at a stage where I don't check at all unless I actually want to or need to for work.

    I use a browser extension called Social Fixer which limits the amount of facebook you can see, amongst other things... So even if I do log in to FB I'll see like 50 posts and that's it...

    Side note: I still keep Messenger installed for communicating with friends, family and some clients.

    Twitter and Insta I only ever use for business, no personal accounts.

    Unfortunately, I recently uncovered the beauty Reddit so I am now hooked on that. It's not all bad as there is a ton of valuable content on there, I can pretty much decide what I want to see... the downside is the time I got back from social media is now consumed in Reddit so I'll likely be deleting this app soon also.
