Recently supermodel/tv personality, Kendall Jenner deleted her Instagram and the internet is raging over it. A Google search showed 12.7 million hits on this topic. Here is a link to just one website talking about it. In an interview with Ellen Degeneres she said, “I just wanted to detox,” Jenner told DeGeneres. “I just wanted a little bit of a break. I would wake up in the morning and look at it first thing, I would go to bed and it would be the last thing I looked at. I felt a little too dependent on it so I wanted to take a minute.” I thought this was really interesting that such a high profile person on social media decided it was too much. I have often considered taking a break from social media. Sometimes I stop and observe how many people in my class are on their phones and 9/10 everyone has their face in their phone. I have some friends who can’t function in social situations without having their phone to fall back on. It acts as a mechanism so that you don’t have to talk to people. I think back to the old days when people would go to concerts and actually enjoy the music. Now a days, you can’t go to a concert without people on Snapchat live streaming the whole thing. To me it isn’t living in the moment and I think that is what life is all about. Phones and social media have a time and a place in our lives. To capture moments you think are necessary and to keep in touch with friends. Not a complete resource and social crutch. I will link a video below that changed how I felt about phones, someone worded it in a way that stood out and over 18 million people have viewed this, I think it is worth while.
