I knew I would need a social media hiatus after the silence was broken. Relying so heavily on social media and technology to communicate made me slightly disenchanted with the whole thing. I always told myself that I would go “Social Media Silent” for a while once I regained other communication channels.
I wanted to let everyone know that I would be coming back at some point in the near future, but I want to give myself a proper cooling off period. It’s interesting to see how quickly you can disappear online when you are truly silent. I don’t think that the silence has nearly the same effect virtually that it does in the real world.
