Reporter Chronicles Social Media Detox

SelfieCould you survive three months without social media? What would it feel like? Would you want to relapse afterwards?

She had concerns about what she might miss by doing so and how friends and family would react. Unsurprisingly, she survived to tell her tale. You can read it here. Similar to a drug or alcohol detox, her social media detox didn’t always proceed without a bit of relapse, nor was she prepared to remove total access to her accounts. Now that the three months are completed, she has decided to make the break final. You might be surprised to learn why and what she learned in the process about herself.
