Raise your hand if you have more than two social media accounts. I’ll give you a minute to think about that one.
I have to say there is a time for everything. And now is the time to purge my social media accounts. Let me see if I can list all the ones that I have: Facebook, Tumblr, StumbleUpon, Pinterest, Google Plus, Twitter, LinkedIn, I’m sure there is more.
I was recently reminded that if they are providing no real value in your life, then why do you have them. Of the list above I think I will purge all but three. I do use Facebook a lot to connect with distant family. LinkedIn is more business related and I have provided value and received value from it. Twitter I am a little on the fence about. I’m thinking of keeping it around for now, but really monitoring my usage and how it is being used.
There will be no fanfare when I delete these accounts. No final post or farewell message. I hope the end result produces a more liberating feeling – only time will tell. Hopefully, I will not fill the void with something else that provides no value. Therein lies the rub. Here’s to success!
