Recently I’ve become really disillusioned with social networks to the point that (this evening) I’ve decided to delete them all. The first to go was Facebook and Facebook Messenger which I deleted last week because I’m preparing to study a difficult course and find it quite distracting. To be honest after I had deleted it I felt as though a pressure had been taken off my shoulders in that I didn’t have to check it umpteen times a day to see if I needed to respond to something. I think on top of that I was starting to find that some of the stuff on there wasn’t really what I was interested in and other stuff was just a bore.
Lately I had begun favouring my Twitter page until this evening when I saw someone I was following complain that ‘778 people were not following him back’. Rather than wonder whether I was morphing into someone as sad as that I decided Twitters days are numbered and will probably be history by the end of the week; the other networks I have (Utube, Google+, Tumblr) will follow soon afterwards.
On the bright side I will (naturally) be keeping my website here and hopefully get myself back to my writing and studying which is really what I want to do at this time in my life; to be honest it’s always what I had planned to do in my retirement. To my regular visitors here on my website can I say a sincere thank you for your support, I do really appreciate it and hope you continue to support me as you have for so many years. X x x Alan x x X
