If you’ve been meaning to clean up your social media friend’s list, I hope you took advantage of the day!
Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel, National Unfriend Day exists. The thought behind today is to unfriend those folks in your massive friends list on Facebook that you don’t really effin know and that aren’t really your friend. Let’s preserve the meaning of “FRIEND“!
CNN has gone the extra mile and even outlined criteria that you should consider when unfriending someone. It’s my personal opinion that you set your own boundaries and ask yourself a few questions before hitting that unfriend button.
- Do you really know them? You don’t engage strangers so why would you share pictures of your children and where you are located to a total stranger (Stranger Danger)
- If you saw them in public, you wouldn’t speak? There’s simply nothing more to add here.
- Do their posts are annoy you to the point that you hide them from your feed? The point of social media is to connect and converse right? So think about it, why are you friends?
- Do you really like them? Now following people you don’t like says a lot about you as a person.
Once upon a time I use to be a Facebooker, even and Instagramer. But I gave that up when my “friends list” was more people I didn’t talk to, didn’t care to talk to or didn’t care to know. And I saw more drama in black and white than I could ever see on television. I deleted my accounts because I didn’t have the energy to partake in a day like today where you go through a list of 500+ people just to delete those that you don’t know. And let’s not forget the energy surrounding social media today is just NEGATIVE. There’s such a divide with race, vaccination status, politics, religion and so much more. I live to laugh, not argue or debate. I’m not a lawyer!
Protect your peace. There is so much more to life than posting all of it on social media all the time.
