Yesterday I walked past a total stranger who wished me happy birthday for last weekend.
WTF?! How did they know? Probably here. And it really made me think again about the content I share.
What is the purpose now for my instagram account? It used to be just a gallery for placing pictures.
Over time it seems to have altered into more of a platform for expressing feelings & become more of a virtual diary.
So, do I carry on as is, recognising that anyone can see? And who gives a shit on here anyway?! Or change/limit the content I share? Or just go closed account?
This comment in the real world has made me really think again about the level of information I share online - & offline - & to reset the boundaries again.
Does this just need to go back to it being about pictures again? Or carry on but with a closed, smaller, more well selected community? 🔘
So, it’s going to be an insta sort out Sunday. Reviewing who I’m following & vice versa to make it relevant for now. A bit of a social spring clean... ➕➖Whilst I decide whether to change account settings to go full lock down ◼️ Social is an important part of my job & with that feel it’s important to have visibility - but maybe I just need to rethink how much I share here & what levels that goes to - because I live my true relationships in the real world.
So, giving it some serious consideration. And in the meantime, going dark. Living life offline for a bit.
If it’s the go closed decision - just to say now, goodbye social world! It’ll be request only to see mine from now on.
