The “great escape” is almost complete!

Already deleted my WhatsApp and Facebook accounts, and am now deleting around 700 photos from Instagram before I delete that account!

@martinfeld Instagram is the more difficult one to leave, I follow a lot of people on there that don't post their images anywhere else. I'm kind of tempted to just delete my photos and keep my account active just for viewing, liking, and commenting, on other peoples stuff.

@matpacker I’m sort of thinking about doing the same. But I still like instagram a bit so, I don’t know.

@Gaby Yeh, I think it's the most difficult one to leave! I think I will trial just using my account for liking/commenting for a couple of weeks and see how it goes…

@matpacker I deleted the app from the phone and see how I feel about not having it. Same with Facebook, haven’t deleted the account but don’t have direct access to it.

@Gaby I think that's a good way to do it, remove the “distraction” and go from there.

@matpacker I deleted my Facebook account but have faced a similar issue with leaving Instagram. My solution thus far has been to just stop using it...
