Create More. Consume Less.
I’m taking a break from Twitter, Facebook, App.net, Foursquare, Instagram, Google+, etc. for a while. The shear number of social networks I belong to is, in and of itself, a problem.
I love the discussions I have on them. I love what I learn from them. I love seeing what my friends are up to, how their kids are doing. But the reality is… it’s getting to be too much; too distracting.
So I join Jesse and Anton in beginning a social media hiatus as of today. I don’t know how long it will last. But I fully intend to spend more time creating instead of consuming. The only way to combat FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) is to Force Ourselves to Miss Out (and hopefully come to the realization that we haven’t missed much at all).
