Tomorrow marks three weeks off of social media. It has been fantastic. I plan on writing a post about the journey so far after a full month. If you have any questions, let me know.

@cdevroe Ooh! 🙋‍♂️

Have you found non-social media alternatives to any of your favourite people or have they all been tied to social media? (example: photographer websites/feeds, or directories for general websites, or general websites in general)

Also: Have you found yourself using screens less often, or is it the same usage but on other things? If so, has there been greater enjoyment with what you spend your time on?

Lastly, do you use social media for work at all and if so have you also pulled the plug on that? I'm interested in the thought process of people who say they need social media for advertising/broadcasting.

@issimonwoods I'm curious to see @cdevroe's answers. I don't NEED social media for work, but Twitter in particular provides me with a place to connect with professional people I might not know well enough to cold email yet.

@issimonwoods good Qs, I'll include answers to all of these.

@cdevroe @issimonwoods My question is in a similar vain to Simon’s: what do you do for communication with those who don’t want to use email or anything outside their social media accounts, yet you still want/need to contact?
