An Examined Digital Life

  1. I am just now reading this, and I appreciate the column. Since I am in grad school and also because I work in education, I am using my social media less and less. I also want to focus more on my surrounding relationships. I still have my “professional” Facebook account, but I deleted my personal one after 15 years in May 2020 because I was becoming more addicted to it again due to loneliness in the pandemic. I am of the opinion that it is not great for our psyche to try to keep up with every person we have ever met, nor is it good for the mind to subject ourselves to a feed of toxic opinions.
