There’s an update to this post.
I decided to take some distance from social networks. I’m feeling that social networks are taking too much of our lives and make us more dependable on people’s acceptance. Social networks are generally running on numbers and I’m not OK with that.
Number of followers, following, date of registration, etc. are some stupid factors that are somehow important for many people and I’m very uncomfortable with this.
So I decided to take some distance from them and only use them once in a while, not everyday. To do so, I deleted the Tusky app from my phone, which I used to send toots to my Mastodon account, and I also deleted apps I had on my desktop computer.
Now, only way I can be active is to use the web-based application they have. I’m expecting that this makes me think less about social networks and make me less active on them.
This way I can focus on my blog and make it my personal and ultimate home on internet and web, which I believe is much better. I won’t delete my accounts as I think they are not inherently bad, but somehow can and may have bad effect on me.
