Social Media Changes

It was finally time to dig into my social media usage a little bit and make some changes. With that in mind, I have made, or will be making, the following changes:

  • Removed all Twitter apps and the main Facebook app from my phone
  • All access to Twitter and Facebook is handled through the web browser on an old-fashioned web browser
  • Looking to use my personal website for more writing and even sharing of information
  • Using Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and Fosstodon as broadcast platforms instead of pure social media/communication platforms … and if you find me anywhere it will be on Fosstodon for now
  • Looking to RSS for viewing/consuming more of my news

Part of the reason behind the use of RSS is to curate a good number of feeds for high-quality content I want to read consistently. This will mean being “quick on the trigger” to remove feeds that I do not find valuable anymore.

That’s about it. So far I went the entire weekend without adding Twitter or Facebook back onto my phone. I am hoping this will continue and break me of some very terrible habits when it comes to social media and media consumption in general.

  1. Love to see the list of curated sites you come up with. This is basically the way I went. I engage on Mastodon now, and check Twitter out here and there but don’t really do much with it at all anymore.
