Social media blather?


A hiatus from Facebook?

A couple of days ago, I went into a convenience store. A clerk was telling another clerk, "today I'm going to do my annual Facebook check to see if I've missed anything for a year. Usually I never miss anything. I'll check it next year."

The same day, one of my therapists said, "every once in a while I deactivate my Facebook account because I get tired of everything and clear my head.  I just want calmness in my life. I don't need to check in all the time."   

A lot of social media is just blather.

I'm thinking about heeding that sage advice. Perhaps, I need some serenity without social media blather.

I get so tired of political rants and raves. I'm so tired of Obama, Hillary, and Trump apologists.

So called "Progressives" and "Conservatives" are all the same now: Condescending arrogant talking heads. Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow, Rush Limgaugh, Bill O'Reilly, etc. are all the same.

I'm so amused and dismayed at the same time.

I just tired of patronizing social media gadflies.

Therefore, I might pull the social media plug. I might let you know. Or not....
