I’m toying with removing myself from all social media.
Yes all of it.
The distraction addiction
I love technology I love the ease of writing on a laptop.
Old enough as I am to remember typing lessons at school. On ancient type writers
Ribbons of ink.
Snarling teachers with knuckle rapping rulers.
Now touch screen I pads
The digital age.
Kids stare at screens to talk to friends
Skype, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat.
But where will it end
Ways to connect ..
Then physically disconnect.
Real people trapped in a cyber prison.
Eyes looking at a screen.
Maps where we have been.
Google history logs all we have seen.
Millions reasons to stay
Trapped in the cell of our own making.
Forgetting where we we’re heading.
Forgetting where we have been.
Phone in our hand
Liking, loving, sad face, angry.
Emotional tiny faces express themselves so we don’t have too.
Photos of holiday, views from around the world
A fear of being alone.
Unsocial Social media.
Little blue button you have been removed from my phone.
No more chain messages
Or threats of being cloned!
