Since I handle the social media at work, I can't completely avoid social media entirely. I see updates and tags and messages, etc. on Facebook but now I don't have easy access to them from my phone at all hours of the day. I still have Instagram on my phone, but I am slowing down on it and trying to be a bit more judicious with the time I choose to spend on there.
Maybe you've already seen this video...but, my sister posted this video to her Facebook page I saw today while at work. It speaks volumes about our society and our newest addictions. I also like it because it rhymes.
Do you think our "looking down" at our devices keeps us from interacting? What steps are you taking to connect more in real life with the world around you?
