Discussion on: What is it Like For You to Quit Social Media For a While?

I went on a pretty huge social media ban awhile back. The main thing I noticed is that I wasn't as stressed out about everything, and I had a lot more "free time" not sucked up by mindless scrolling.

The main drawback is that I was also pretty cut off from the development community, and it was very difficult to keep up with my network as well. It is, after all, social media.

I'm trying to strike a balance at the moment, but it's proving difficult.
