Just Delete The Apps
The problem with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is that they offer a never-ending feed of interesting, but low-quality information.
One can either:
- Keep up with the flow. (Very time consuming)
- Check in periodically without back-reading. (Moderate)
Most people are incapable of #2, and try to consume all of it. I am particularly compulsive in that regard.
I left Facebook, Twitter and Instagram by simply deleting the apps on my iPhone. This freed up at least an hour a day to do real stuff, and made me more present in the real world.
